Today on the blog I am sharing a tutorial for Christmas Tree Pretzels. This was created for The Inspiration Edit by a friend and I think she did a brilliant job. Christmas is coming soon and I am getting super excited. I can’t wait to get the energy to go Christmas Shopping and wrap up some lovely gifts for my beautiful little girl. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this lovely post. It’s such a fabulous idea.

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.

Melt the candy melts over low heat until completely smooth. You may have to thin them out a bit by adding a dab of shortening or lard.
