Christmas cookies are good. No Bake Christmas Tree Cookies are even better! These festive sweet treats are gluten free, fun to make and almost too pretty to eat. Almost. :)
No Bake Christmas Tree Cookies
- ½ cup butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp. milk
- 3 cups shredded coconut
- ½ tsp. vanilla or mint extract
- Green food coloring
- ¾ cup white chocolate chips
- Mini M&M’s®
- In a large pot, melt butter. Remove from heat.
- Stir in powdered sugar and milk. Stir in coconut, vanilla/mint and enough food coloring to make the mixture green.
- Shape into small balls, and using the tips of your fingers gently squeeze one side of the ball until it takes on a cone shape. If the mixture gets too cool to work with, heat on low for 1-2 minutes.
- Place cookies on baking sheet, uncovered, to set either in the fridge for 2-3 hours or the freezer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
- Melt white chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave, until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip the tops of the cookies in the white chocolate to look like snow. Add mini M&M's.
- Place in the fridge or freezer to set before storing in an air tight container.
