Easy Tear & Share Chocolate Pastry Christmas Tree (Vegan)

Vegan Pastry Chocolate Christmas Tree

This simple dessert / brunch / party centrepiece / whatever you fancy is ideal for festive get togethers.

The recipe couldn’t be simpler, but it tastes deeeee-licious – and looks impressive, too!

It’s also simple to make with kids (let them decorate it, if you feel that way inclined!) – although they’ll have even more fun eating it!

We sat down and ate ours as a Christmas movie marathon snack!

I hope you enjoy!

Easy Chocolate Pastry Christmas Tree

Ingredients:

  • Creates one tree:
  • 2 x sheets vegan Ready-Rolled Puff Pastry
  • 5 tbsp vegan chocolate spread (I used Meridian Chocca)
  • Splash plant milk, for brushing
  • Icing sugar or ground sugar of choice, for decorating
  • Cinnamon, for decorating

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C. Unroll one of the pastry sheets and arrange on a lined baking tray.
  2. Gently melt the chocolate spread, then allow to cool. Spoon over the top of the pastry, smoothing to cover. Lay the second sheet of pastry on top.
  3. Cut out in a tree shape (a large triangle, with a rectangular trunk), then cut a star to top with the excess pastry. Pull away excess pastry, then cut branches into the sides of the triangle (you don’t want them to meet in the middle).
  4. Twist the branches away from you, moving up the tree to finish all branches.
  5. Arrange the star at the top of the tree, then brush the pastry with the milk.
  6. Bake until golden and puffed up (12-15 minutes), then allow to cool a little. Dust with icing sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired, then serve slightly warm.
