  • 6 pretzel rods
  • 6 oz green candy melts
  • 1/2 cup mini M&M’s
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles
  • sandwich bag
  • scissors
  • waxed paper


  • Lay out a generous sheet of waxed paper out and place the pretzel rods about 6 inches apart from each other.
  • Melt half a bag of the candy melts in the sandwich bag according to the direction. When the melts have reached a liquid form, snip a super tiny piece of one of the corners off the bag.
  • Squeeze the candy melt out of the bag starting from the top of the pretzel rod, gradually creating a tree shape.
  • Sprinkle your choice of toppings on the candy melt to create the look of ornaments. This is a great step for the kids to do!
  • Let the candy melt cool completely before serving. I let mine cool over night to make sure they had set appropriately.
