Ingredients

  • 2 green peppers
  • 1 bag snap peas
  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1 yellow pepper (star)

  • 1 package cherry tomatoes (ornaments)

Instructions

  1. Cut your green pepper in long triangles to form the lower branches of the tree.

  2. Cut the broccoli into individual pieces.

  3. Use a cookie cutter to make a star from the yellow pepper.

  4. Carefully use a pairing knife to make garland from the red pepper, cutting a spiral.

  5. Next, use the toothpicks to make your tree. Place the green pepper branches on the bottom, then the snap peas, and then the broccoli.
  6. Insert the cherry tomatoes, top with the yellow pepper star and wrap with red pepper garland.

  7. Serve with your favorite dip! Enjoy!
