1 box of chocolate cake mix

can of green frosting

bag of small candy (M&Ms or Skittles)

bag of large candy (Hershey kisses or cherry cordials)

star-shaped candy (Peppermint Patty)

Bake the Cake

The first step in making your Christmas Tree Snack Cake is to bake the chocolate cake mix. Once done, set the cake aside to cool.

Cut Your Tree

Using a serrated knife, trim the edges of the cake into the shape of a tree. Make sure that the base of the tree is wider than the top.

Frost It

Cover the entire cake with the green frosting. This will be the “leaves” of the tree.

Decorate with Candy

Here’s where the fun part comes in! Using the small candies, decorate the tree in any way that you like. Add M&Ms or Skittles to resemble ornaments, or place Hershey kisses to create a garland.

Add the Finishing Touch

Finally, place the star-shaped candy at the top of the tree. A Peppermint Patty works great for this!
