  • Mixing Bowl
  • Baking Sheet


  • 24 pretzel sticks
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 10 drops green food coloring
  • ½ cup holiday sprinkles


  • Melt chocolate chips in microwavable bowl until smooth. We find this works best in 20 second intervals, stirring after each microwave.
  • Stir in food coloring until combined. More or less food coloring can be added depending on desired color.
  • Spread pretzel sticks 2 inches apart on wax paper.
  • Spoon chocolate into Ziploc bag, and snip one bottom corner.
  • Drizzle chocolate over pretzel in the shape of a tree, small on top to wider bottom, leaving a small amount of pretzel in the bottom to stick into the cupcake. Make sure to cover most of the pretzel so the chocolate will stick to the pretzel rod.
  • Decorate with your favorite sprinkles and let harden for at least 20 minutes.
  • Place into your favorite cupcakes and enjoy!
