Christmas tree Pretzel Rods

Christmas tree pretzel rods couldn't be easier! Drizzle green candy over pretzels to make these cute and delicious Christmas trees. This is a great candy for kids to help with—let them get creative with the decorative toppings like sprinkles, nuts, and coconut.

Recipe of the Month


  • 8 ounces green candy coating
  • 6 large pretzel rods
  • Assorted sprinkles


  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Place the green candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating.
  3. Arrange the pretzel rods on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or waxed paper.
  4. Transfer the melted coating to a large plastic bag. Snip a hole in the corner of the bag.
  5. Drizzle the coating over a pretzel rod in a tree shape: start about halfway up a rod, and make the wide base of the tree, gradually narrowing as you reach the top until it comes to a peak at the top of the pretzel.
  6. While the coating is still wet, sprinkle it with assorted sprinkles to represent Christmas lights. If desired, you can place a gold candy or star-shaped sprinkle on top. Repeat until all of the pretzels have been turned into trees.
  7. Refrigerate the tray briefly to set the coating.
  8. Serve and enjoy!


*** Dermody Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics will be CLOSED for the Christmas Holiday beginning Friday December 21st. We will resume normal business hours on Wednesday January 2nd 2019! We hope all our patients have a wonderful Christmas Holiday and we wish everyone a very Happy New Year! ***
