Directions for Edible Chicken Nugget Tree

  1. Cover the styrofoam cone with aluminum foil.
  2. Break toothpicks in half.
  3. Use the pointed end of toothpick to stick in styrofoam cone.
  4. Add a cherry tomato to the toothpick sticking out and continue steps 3-4 so you have a row of cherry tomatoes going down and around on a diagonal.
  5. Next start a row of chicken nuggets following the row of cherry tomatoes going down and around on a diagonal using the same technique as steps 3-4.
  6. Alternate rows so it looks like the cherry tomatoes are a garland.
  7. Fill in the gaps with lettuce either by shoving pieces into the holes or using the toothpicks to hold it in place.
  8. For the star, use 4 pieces of strawberries and toothpicks by interlocking them into a cross.
  9. Display it on the salad tray, platter or in the middle of the train tracks.
