December seems to be whizzing by just as quickly as November did. The children are so excited which is lovely to see. They love the excitement of seeing what’s inside their Advent calendars every day. We have some bigger Christmas treats lined up this weekend and I really hope we will get to make a start on building our annual gingerbread house too. I love making Christmas treats and my Chocolate Christmas tree pretzels are always a big hit. They are simple to make so I thought I would share them in case you are in need of a quick chocolate fix this Christmas!
Ingredients to make Chocolate Christmas pretzel treats
1 bag of mini pretzel sticks
1 bag of green candy melts
3-5 tbsp coconut oil
1 container of Christmas sprinkles
1 cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 squeeze bottle with a number 2 tip (Sugarbelle line from Michaels)
How to make Chocolate Christmas tree pretzels
Using a double boiler, melt the green candy melts and coconut oil and mix until smooth.
Carefully scoop the melted candy melt into the decorating bottle
Place about 10 pretzel sticks onto the parchment paper
Using the squeeze bottle, pipe the details of a Christmas tree onto the pretzel
Sprinkle some Christmas sprinkles onto the chocolate
Allow to harden for 2 hours before carefully lifting and removing them from the parchment paper and enjoying!
