Quick, easy, and impressive! Cooked shrimp and other colorful munchies are displayed on a Christmas tree created with beet greens wrapped around a cone shape. Vary the size of the cone and type/amount of veggies to personalize this for your party needs. Using purchased sauces for dipping makes this even easier. Display on a colorful Christmas plate and watch the snackers un-decorate!

Directions

  1. Wrap a 9 inch tall Styrofoam cone with aluminum foil, covering completely. Use toothpicks to attach beet greens, with the undersides facing outward, to the cone. Cut off the exposed pieces of toothpick with strong scissors. Place the slice of cheese on a dry serving plate. Set the cone onto the cheese to anchor.
  2. Use frilly toothpicks to attach shrimp, baby corn, black olives, green olives and jalapeno slices to the cone to look like decorations. Scatter any leftover vegetables around the base of the tree. Serve with your choice of colorful purchased dipping sauces, like cocktail sauce, remoulade sauce, or guacamole.

This is a wonderful recipe and a crowd pleaser. Everyone commented on how festive it was. I only subed one item, parsley for the beet leaves, it made the tree look a little more real and festive. I also did one using fruits and a cream cheese dip. Thanks for the great recipe.

This was really fun to do! I even added a styrofoam star at the top of the tree! My family really enjoyed it and it makes a nice centerpiece on the table.

I loved this! People were afraid to eat it though, but my tree turned out exactly like this one! I added hummus dips at the bottom, and cocktail sauce as well. Don't forget the star on top!
