Edible Christmas Wreaths


I’m always looking for new ways to surprise my friends and family during the Christmas holidays and edible wreaths never fail to go down a treat. Loved by adults and children alike, an edible wreath will make the ultimate centrepiece for your Christmas dinner table. A shop bought wreath is great for decoration purposes but you can’t beat a handmade one if you want to impress your guests with a unique design.

Savoury Wreath Ideas
If you are hosting Christmas dinner this year, a savoury wreath can not only complement your main meal but it also works well as a sharing starter. You can create show stopping edible wreaths with olives, mozzarella balls, spinach leaves and cherry tomatoes. Simply stack one of each of the ingredients on a cocktail stick and arrange them in a circular shape. You can even use the space in the middle for dips. Alternatively you can create an edible wreath from pigs in blankets and serve as a stunning side dish.

Sweet Wreath Ideas
Kids will love the novelty of a sweet wreath. If you are looking for a tasty treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth, you can’t beat an edible wreath. When it comes to ingredients, the possibilities are endless. You can create a cute wreath out of gingerbread stars like this one on Pinterest or you can create a fabulous wreath out of Lindt balls for chocolate lovers. 

If you are making a wreath out of baked goods, you can buy all of the equipment you need online from somewhere like Bakery Bits. The shiny red Lindt wrappers make this design incredibly festive and it will not only taste great but look great too.

You will need:
  • A metal wreath frame
  • Leaves and Twigs
  • Lindt Balls
  • Moss
  • Pine Cones
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
If you don’t want to create a Christmas wreath that is completely edible, you can simply make a traditional one and add treats to it. Wrap the moss, leaves and twigs around the metal frame to create the base of your wreath. Add pinecones and bows to bulk out your design and then fill in the gaps with a few sweet treats.

A Christmas wreath will make a great addition to your festive celebrations. Hopefully this post will inspire you to make your own edible wreaths this Christmas.
