Pretzel White Chocolate Christmas Trees - 52 Holiday Cookies Snacks for Children's Church

Pin It Now!

Everybody loved the rustic look of these!

The kids love anything chocolate (even white chocolate), Christmas themed and MandMs!

I loved the ease of making them!  No bake, simply melt some white chocolate (I LOVE the new candy melting discs).  Color and do a little simple piping.  A piping bag and tip makes these easy but if you don't have one of those, you can just fill a ziplock bag and snip one corner.

Then design away to match the photos.  Add a trunk (Salty crunchy pretzel) and some ornaments (MandMs) and a bit of time for the chocolate to harden and...




 OK... Here's what I did...

Pretzel White Chocolate Christmas Trees

  • 2 Cups White Chocolate Melting Candy discs
  • Green Food Coloring, As needed for desired color
  • 24 Small Pretzel Sticks
  • Big Bag of MandM's (Christmas Colors work best)
Cooking Directions
  1. Melt the candy according to the directions on teh bag. I prefer the Microwave method, pour the chips into a microwave safe bowl, zap for 15 seconds, stir and repeat until everything is smooth. Be carful to NOT overcook as white chocolate burns easily.
  2. Add Green food coloring until you reach the desired color.
  3. Spread a sheet of parchment paper (or waxed paper). Transfer the colored melted chocolate into a piping bag with a round tip (or a ziplock plastic bag sealed with as much air as possible squeezed out and one corner snipped off).
  4. Form a triangle and a straight line from one tip through the base of the triangle and continuing below the base for an inch. Make 6 at a time but work fast you need to finish before the chocolate hardens.
  5. Press a pretzel into the line (the trunk).
  6. Now make a zig zag patern in the triangle to fill in the tree.
  7. Add MandMs to look like Ornaments.
  8. Repeat until the chocolate runs out.
  9. Allow to sit for an hour (in the fridge if possible) until the chocolate hardens.
  10. Serve to the kids with a mug of Hot Chocolate and ENJOY!
