You could use rice krispie treats to create the trunk of the tree and cover with modeling chocolate. Then for the branches I would use a heavy gauged wire and cover in chocolate.

And I hope that someone has a better idea, cause as I type, not sure that the wire will hold....hmmmmm... Sorry!

How big did you need it to be. I found a brill tutorial here

but, they may be too small for you.

I made a giant tree last Christmas to hold up a gingerbread house (my theme was treehouse in the woods) I molded RKT around a large wooden dowel and then covered it in modeling chocolate. The branches are RKT molded around heavy gauge wire and covered in modeling chocolate. It held up really well! You can take a look at it in my picture if you're interested... HTH
