O Sweet Christmas Tree

14 cup butter or 14 cup margarine, melted
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons half-and-half cream
3 cups coconut
green food coloring (optional)
3 ounces chocolate, for dipping
decorative candies (silver balls)


Combine all ingredients well, except chocolate, using as much food coloring as desired. While 'dough' is still warm and pliable, take about a tablespoon amount (decide how large you would like your trees) and with fingertips, shape into an upsidedown cone/a standing fir-tree. Do not try rolling. Squeeze your amount firmly so it adheres toegther, then stand one end on work surface and shape into a fir-tree, pressing fairly firmly. Do not make tip too sharp in order to accomodate the decorative ball later. When all the 'dough' is shaped, melt chocolate and dip tops of trees. While chocolate is still soft, place silver ball on the tip. A thought: would white chocolate look like snow?
