Sweet Christmas Trees made with Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey Kiss

Delightful treats and darling Thank You gifts, these will put a smile on your face as you create individual "Sweet" Christmas Trees.

Reeses come in mini, snack, and jumbo. The ones pictured here are mini and snack sizes.

Ingredients for one tree:
2 Miniature Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
1 Regular Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
1 Hershey Kiss
Melted Chocolate (your choice of color) or Icing as "glue"

Unwrap all of your Chocolate.
Melt your chocolate according to to package directions to use as "glue".  You can melt it right in a zip-top bag and cut the corner off. Or use icing to attach the layers.

Base: Upside Down miniature PB cup
2nd layer: Upside down regular size PB cup
3rd layer: Miniature PB cup upside down
Top layer:  Hershey Kiss

Repeat with as many trees as you plan to make.
Allow to set (in the fridge) for approx 30 minutes.
Drizzle with your chocolate around the edges in a pretty pattern and sprinkle with your favorite kind of sprinkles/jimmies/non-pariels

Refrigerate all the candy before starting because the Reeses get soft and collapse. Keep cold and only pull out 3 or 4 at a time to work on...they thaw very quickly.
They freeze well.

Thanks to for the recipe.
