How to Make a Toaster Pastry Christmas Train

How to Make a Toaster Pastry Christmas Train. This eatable Christmas Train made with toaster pastries is a fun alternative to a gingerbread house. Use it as your table decor, and then eat it for dessert. Follow these step-by-step tutorial instructions to learn how to assemble this adorable Christmas train.

Use it as your table decor, and then eat it for dessert. Follow these step-by-step tutorial instructions to learn how to assemble this adorable Christmas train.


Notes:

• If you are not sure how fast the candy melts in your local grocery store turnover, buy some Wilton chocolates. They are a great consistency and generally easier to work with.

• If your chocolate melts are not smoothing out as you would like, add a touch of vegetable oil and heat again (this would be the third round).

• Load your piping bag into a glass, pointy side down. Fold the edges over the glass. Now fill with your melted white chocolate via a spoon. Snip the bottom (if using disposable), and you can use your candy piping bag to “candy glue” as well as to decorate. Remember, you cannot reheat candy in a piping bag, so work with small amounts!

• We filled the coal car this with gumdrops. You could fill it with any type of candy you like including chocolates (black coal), raspberry gummies, or wrapped round candy.

• You do not have to use the candies “we” (that is the royal we since my niece did 99% of this train… I was spare hands) did. The biggest thing to remember when making this train is scale… do not let your candies get too large.

• This was edged at the top with a piping. You could also edge the “windows” to match.

• If using edible glue or sprinkles, make sure to use a light hand and sprinkle on top of the edging while the candy is wet.

• Whatever you do allow the chocolate to dry before moving on to the next section.

• To save time, do a section, candy-glue and then do the next part while the candy-glue is drying.
