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. Warm 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!

    1. Thanks Morgan! I made these last year to take to a Christmas party. It wasn’t long until my platter was empty! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  1. Hi Susan! I love making candy and these are fantastic! Thank you so much for joining the party and sharing these at All Things Christmas! Pinning and sharing! Hope you have a fantastic Tuesday!

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

    1. You can try, Tracy, but I like the nonstick foil because these can be delicate and you have to gently peel the foil (or wax paper) from the chocolate without breaking it. Maybe make your chocolate trees a little thicker so they are sturdier than mine. Start with a small amount of candy melts. If it doesn’t work out then you can buy the nonstick foil without wasting much chocolate.

  3. These are so cute and I like how simple they are to make too. I’d love to pin and feature this next week – could you add Craftastic Monday to your link party page? Thanks for sharing this at Craftastic Monday at Sew Can Do!

  4. Hi,
    These are cute!
    It mentions chocolate in the preparation instructions (spoon chocolate) , however I do not see it in the supply list.
