Chocolate Pine Cones are perfect for creating rustic and festive winter desserts, especially when paired with sprigs of Sugared Rosemary and Sugared Cranberries. The simple design is so easy to make, and perfect for a winter celebration when sprinkled with powdered sugar snow!
WINTER CELEBRATION CAKE
One of my favorite desserts to make around the holidays is a Winter Celebration Cake - and the star of the show are these Chocolate Pine Cones - made with a super easy chocolate fudge and lots of sliced almonds. Beautiful in its simplicity, the natural and rustic look works perfectly with my northwoods themed celebrations.
