This flat-packed chocolate holiday tree offers a unique assembly experience thanks to its clever shipping-friendly packaging. The flat-packed chocolate Christmas tree comes in a single box with each of the pieces of the tree as well as a pair of white gloves in order for the lucky owner to construct it without melting the chocolate.

The chocolate holiday tree was designed by Alain Ducasse and is essentially assembled like a tiered wedding cake, with each circular level of the tree covered in various gourmet nuts, seeds and dried fruit.

The unique application of flat-packed shipping packaging to assemble-at-home chocolate decor is notable based on the fact the popular and eco-friendly design method has found its way into basically every other industry at this point.
