These easy Christmas tree pastries are a fun way to start your day and get the kids involved in the kitchen! Serve them on Christmas morning or package them and gift to your friends and loved ones!

Growing up my mom y mi abuela would always greet guests with a hot cup of cafe con leche and pan con mantequilla! During the colder months, I’m often reminded of those times. I think about watching them laugh and talk about the latest local bochinche while they enjoyed their cafe con pan.

My kids don’t have the luxury of living around their entire family, but I do try to instill certain traditions at home with them. Instead of coffee though, I serve hot chocolate made with NESTLÉ® ABUELITA Mexican Hot Chocolate (the EXACT same brand I grew up on and drank while los adultos drank coffee).

Easy Christmas Tree Pastries

They enjoy their hot chocolate with homemade pastries filled with pudding that’s made with NESTLÉ® LA LECHERA® Sweetened Condensed Milk  that we buy at Walmart.

I love that I can still find products that I grew up on and share them with my kids. NESTLÉ® LA LECHERA® Sweetened Condensed Milk is the perfect ingredient to help you pamper your loved ones with delicious desserts that fit your busy lifestyle. Its tradition and quality are guaranteed to create unforgettable family bonding moments!

These homemade Christmas tree pastries are really easy to make and the kids will love to help make them as much as they will eating them!
