Chocolate Covered Pretzel Christmas Trees

Don't you just love a holiday treat that is yummy and cute? These are the epitome of that, in my opinion. I love that they are a no bake treat as well! Those are the best kind of treats to go in your holiday neighbor goodie bags!

Quantities vary
  • 1 bag stick pretzels
  • 1 {16 oz.} pkg white melting chocolate {I used Candiquik}
  • Green food coloring
  • Yellow star sprinkles {I found mine at Walmart}
  • Red sparkle writing gel

  1. Melt chocolate according to package directions.
  2. Add food coloring until chocolate is your desired color of green.
  3. Dip a pretzel into chocolate about 3/4 of the way down and place on wax paper.
  4. Break 3 pretzels into thirds.
  5. Dip 8 of the thirds in the chocolate and connect to the whole pretzel {4 on each side} at a slant on the wax paper.
  6. Immediately top with a yellow star.
  7. Once hardened, place dots of the wiritng gel randomly on the tree to symbolize ornaments.
I hope you enjoy making these cute pretzel treats and have a very merry Christmas!



  1. These are really cute. How did you get the smaller 1/3 length fully dipped? Thanks!

    1. Thanks Karen! So, I use a fork to dip all my stuff. I submerged the small pieces fully in the chocolate and then I lifted it up with my fork and I would rub the fork on the edge of the bowl of chocolate and all the excess would run off through the slats of the fork. Does that make sense?

  3. adorable! I like this version because you used the pretzels as the branches - more sturdy and more pretzel! Pinning :)

  4. adorable! I was about to ask the same question about how you dipped them. I am so making these! Thanks for sharing at Talking Tuesday.
