3 Ways to Make Puff Pastry Christmas Trees!

The concept of turning puff pastry into a Christmas tree is not new! In fact, the internet seems to be filled with suggestions for different Christmas puff pastry styles from snowflakes through to wreaths. But it was the idea of turning it into a Christmas tree that Hannah and I discovered a few years ago and we definitely latched on!

The version we saw was stuffed full of that gorgeously hazelnutty chocolate spread –you know the one I mean…covered with icing sugar it made the perfect festive brunch, snack, lunch, dinner…don’t judge us please!!
