"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!" — SHOGIRL

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!
I HAVE DONE THIS MYSELF IN THE PAST AND LOVE THE IDEA!!!!!!! EVERYONE ENOYS IT AND APPRECIATES IT. GIVES A VERY FESTIVE FEELING TO THE AFFAIR!
Cheese as glue! Fantastic!!
This was very impressive and easy to create! What a conversation piece! Will make this many more times!
