Ingredients
 

peanut butter Christmas trees

  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup Peanut Butter, creamy
  • ½ cup Marshmallow Fluff
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Silicone Christmas Tree Mold, this is the one I have

chocolate

  • 12 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (1 bag), can use milk chocolate chips too
  • ½ square of Paraffin Wax, or 2 tablespoon of either coconut oil or vegeteable oil

Instructions

  • Prepare a small baking sheet or container lined with wax paper.
  • Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on medium-high speed, mix together the unsalted butter, peanut butter, and marshmallow fluff until completely combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Switch the mixer to low speed and gradually add in the confectioners sugar. Mix together until the peanut butter filling forms (it should be soft, creamy, and a little sticky).
  • Take a few spoonfuls and fill each Christmas tree cavity with the peanut butter mixture. Fill them almost to the top.
  • Freeze the peanut butter trees until they are firm enough to dip into the chocolate - about 1 hour, but overnight is my preference.
  • Using a double boiler (fill the bottom boiler with about 1″-1.5″ water), melt the wax over low-heat uncovered until melted. Then add in the bag of chocolate chips and stir continuously until melted.
  • Using 2 forks, carefully dip each tree into the melted chocolate then set back onto the wax paper. Repeat until all the trees are done.
  • After the chocolate has hardened, trim off any excess chocolate from the bottom (optional step).
  • Store the chocolate covered peanut butter trees in the fridge or you can freeze them (in a container) for up to a month.
