  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Ground Ginger
  • ½ tsp Nutmeg

Method

First make a cone shape out of baking paper to use as the mould.

To make the Tree, start by roasting the nuts in a 180°C oven for 5 -7 mins, then roughly chop them. Next mix in the Spices with the Nuts.

Now melt the 180g Dark Chocolate down and combine with the Vanilla and Nut Butter. The next step is to combine the Melted Chocolate with the Nuts and the remainder of the Ingredients (except the extra Chocolate). Once done fill the cone shape and leave in the freezer to set for an hour.

Once the tree has set, melt down the remaining 90g Chocolate and decorate the tree with it and anything else you like.
