12oz. package of Wilton white or bright white candy melts
green & red holiday sprinkles
1bag of pretzel sticksnot the larger rods
1-2small sandwich baggies
1-2foil lined baking sheets
#1. Place the candy melts in a microwavable safe glass dish. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Remove from the microwave and let cool a few minutes.
#2. Once the chocolate is cool but still melted, scoop it into the sandwich baggie, squeeze the extra air out and make a small snip in the bottom corner of the bag.
#3. I thought these were pretty easy to make but if you want, do a practice run a few times….
Place a small pretzel stick on the foil lined baking sheet. Draw one line of white chocolate across the pretzel about midway-3/4 of the way up. Continue to work your way up the pretzel making the white chocolate lines shorter and shorter making to resemble a Christmas tree.
Too make the tree ‘thicker’, simply work your way back down going an a back a forth motion.
#4. Sprinkle the green & red sprinkles on the tree.
Practice makes perfect. The first few trees I did looked funny and that’s ok! This is supposed to be fun and they don’t have to be perfect. Once you do a few of them you will get the hang of it.
#5. Once you’ve used all the chocolate and decorated your trees, place the baking sheets in the fridge. Take them out after 20 minutes and you will be able to pop the trees right off the foil. Be gentle with them and store them in the fridge. I ended up letting mine set out for 30 minutes and a few broke in half so keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
