Tips for making tree shaped pretzels

Making these trees is as easy as it looks but there’s a method that I noticed works best at creating these little guys. Start your chocolate drizzling from the top because it’s super easy to go out too far and make too large of a tree if you start at the base.

We want these trees a little more proportionate so they can’t get too crazy large, right?

Also, when using larger sprinkles, you can use the end of an unused pretzel stick to lightly press them down into the chocolate so that they’re better adhered.

FAQ’s about pretzel trees

Can I add food coloring to white chocolate?

Yes, but it needs to be a special variety. Using a gel or oil-based food coloring works better than liquid or water-based food coloring because water will cause chocolate to seize.

How long are christmas tree pretzels good for?

Once decorated these trees can remain in an airtight container in the fridge for several days. While you could get them to easily last about 2 weeks, it’s always best to eat them fresher to avoid stale pretzels.

How to make Christmas tree pretzels

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent chocolate from adhering to the sheet.

Arrange your pretzels with a few inches of space between them so that there is space for the trees to grow.

In a bowl, microwave your chocolate of choice in 30-second intervals, stirring well between each until smooth.

Transfer the chocolate to a piping bag or Ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.

Drizzle the chocolate over the pretzel sticks, working from the top to the base to create a tree.

Add your sprinkles and candies to create a unique design.

Place the baking sheet in your fridge for about 30 minutes to set and harden.

Eat and enjoy.
