Bring the kids into the kitchen for a gooey fun time making Chinese Christmas Trees. The crunchy, chewy treats are made with crispy Chow Mein noodles and melted marshmallows!
To make Chinese Christmas Trees
Start by greasing a large glass bowl with cooking spray or oil. Put half a bag of marshmallows, 4 Tablespoons of butter, and a few drops of green food coloring into the bowl.
Microwave at 30 second intervals until marshmallows are melted. Stir between intervals.
Pour half a bag of Chow Mein Noodles into the hot, melted marshmallow.
Quickly stir to coat the noodles thoroughly.
5. Now coat your fingers and palms REALLY well in butter. I’m talking make-Paula-Deen-proud kind of butter coating!!!! If you don’t, you will have a gooey mess! Just have a sacrificial stick of butter sitting on your counter and keep re-coating your hands between making each tree.
6. With your super buttered fingers, grab a small handful of the marshmallow chow mein and quickly shape into tree forms and set onto waxed paper. Microwave the mixture for a 20 seconds if it’s setting up too quickly.
7. Before the trees cool, sprinkle with decorative sugar sprinkles. and add a cinnamon dot to the tree top if desired.
Enjoy your delicious Chinese Christmas Trees!
