I’ve always admired the beautiful meringue mushrooms on Christmas yule log cakes—they’re so fluffy and delicate-looking! As much as I love them, I’ve never gotten around to making them myself. The holiday season is just so busy that I can’t seem to find the time to bake meringues on top of everything else. When I saw this round ice cube tray at the dollar store though, I immediately knew it was just the shortcut I needed. Make your own chocolate mushrooms this holiday season—with this trick, they only takes a few minutes!

• Colored chocolate melting wafers
• Round mini ice cube tray (mine is from the dollar store)
• Cookie or pretzel sticks
1. Melt chocolate wafers in a bowl and stir until smooth. Carefully fill the round cavities of the ice cube tray and tap the tray on the table a few times to prevent air bubbles.
2. Break the cookie/pretzel sticks into shorter lengths and insert into each of the chocolates. Put into the fridge to harden and then use to decorate your yule log.
