  1. In a bowl, mix the biscuit spread, chocolate spread and icing sugar well to a mouldable paste.
  2. Divide the mix into 4 and mould each portion into the shape of a cone around one of the breadstick halves.
  3. Pick out the oval shapes from the Coco Pops Rocks and stick them into the base of the chocolate mixture all the way around. Working upwards, continue sticking them into the mixture to produce narrowing circles, to look like a pine cone. Use a sharp knife to halve the cereal for the top layer. Chill for 2 hrs until firm.
  4. Once set, dust with icing sugar and wrap carefully with cellophane, ribbon and a little Christmas bell. The pine cones will keep for up to a week in the fridge.
