"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!"

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!!
I have done this for several years and everyone loves it. I set mine up on a mirror and have little ice-skating figures on it. I also use party picks instead of toothpicks. They look like more decorations.
Going to make this but use kale as the leaves instead of beet greens!
This was very impressive and easy to create! What a conversation piece! Will make this many more times!
