These fun Chocolate Pretzel Christmas Trees are fun to make for any holiday party  |  OHMY-CREATIVE.COMSupplies List:

Green Candy Melts, Nonpareil Sprinkles, Star Sprinkles, Wilton Icing Bottle, Pennysticks Pretzels – I bought mine at Dollar Tree, but I have seen them in the grocery store as well.

I put about half of the bag of candy melts in a microwave safe bowl warming 1 minute at a time until melted – stir in-between each minute. Use less time as the candy melts get to the right consistency. Spoon chocolate into the bottle…it may be hot to the touch. On a few sheets of non-stick Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil, space out the pretzel sticks. NOTE – it is important to use the non-stick foil to be able to remove the trees without breaking!

Work quickly with the chocolate starting at the top. {I added a little extra above the pretzel so I could anchor the stars} Start with the chocolate at the top, completing the shape of the tree, then go over it again thickening the chocolate to make it more sturdy. Immediately add the nonpareil sprinkles {snow} and the star, so when the chocolate hardens, they hold in place. When the chocolate is hard, gently peel back the foil from the tree. You don’t want to break off a branch!

  13. Using wax paper instead of foil would be ideal for non-stick surface.

  14. I am confused on how these are chocolate pretzel trees. The candy melts are not chocolate, so where does the chocolate come into play?
