Color your eggs in red for red, black for bomb, green for pigs, yellow for chuck and blue for jay , jake and jim. Click here to download a printable sheet of angry birds faces to cut out and paste on the eggs after the colors are completely dry. It’s A3 size paper, and you can adjust it since it’s a vector one.

After the eggs are ready, get a white sheet serving as a table cloth, draw sun and clouds, lay a tree branch and build your nest to put the eggs inside. The nest is a ready made wreath i bought form a shop that sells tools for gardening.

Dip it in melted white chocolate, or color it with springy colors, using food color gel. Insert the bunny picks, and let it chill a bit in the fridge before serving.

5-savoury-goat-cheese-and-thyme-christmas-treemarmite-et-ponpon

I bet on a Lebanese Christmas dinner table you can find 10452 kind of food, it’s not that we eat a lot, but we love and cherish good food. And since it’s a night for family reunion, all tastes should be satisfied!

I am someone who likes entrées, amuse bouches, salads…. and i like to add the festive look on the presentation for this special night that i believe it’s like no other! This year, I will be celebrating with my small family as we are not going home for this Christmas. My tiniest fans who are the most sincere fans and speaking the truth straight forward; it’s either yummy or yaki. So i had to try this feta zaatar (thyme) tree to see how many thumbs up i will get from Nady and Joud to avoid disappointment on Christmas eve! And lucky me I got 6 thumbs up counting in my husband 🙂

It’s very easy to prepare and can be presented in less than 20 minutes, to be eaten in 2 minutes 🙂 Few ingredients are needed, as: puff pastry, zaatar, olive oil, feta cheese crumbled or cut in small cubes, and one egg for the wash.

1-savoury-goat-cheese-and-thyme-christmas-treemarmite-et-ponpon

Roll out the dough on a parchment paper and cut 2 equal tree shape. Brush one tree with zaatar and olive oil, sprinkle the feta and cover with the second tree. Cut parallel and equal lines on both sides of the tree as the photo shows. Twist each part to do the branches and press it down to the parchment paper. Brush with the egg wash and bake on 200°C for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

There is no accurate amount for the ingredients, as you can make the tree the size you want, and put zaatar and cheese as per your taste! I told you it’s very easy and quick. Try it, i am sure it will add more fun to your Christmas table, and more yummy to your tummy.

You will need Kit Kat chocolate bars (the one of four parts), as many as you want, depending on how many piece you want, keeping in mind each one makes 2 to 3 trees.

White chocolate melt colored green.

Confetti and stars (made of sugar), you can also have any small sugar Christmas decoration, as cane, santa, snowmen….up to you.

1-kit-kat-christmas-tree-t-marmite-et-ponpon

Cut 2 or 3 triangles out of each Kit Kat bar, keep the trimmed edges to make the tree trunk. Place on parchment paper. Put the green chocolate melt in a ziplok  bag and make a very tiny cut at to pipe the garlands. Sprinkle the confetti (and the decorations you find), and finally place the star.

PS: to attach the trunk to the tree put a little chocolate melt

Place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes before placing them on a tray, using a little chocolate melt that serves like glue to prevent the trees from falling. Sprinkle coconut powder to look like snow between the trees.
