Christmas Pretzel Trees
So it's no secret that our daughters love anything sweet. Or that they love getting ideas from magazines to try at home. Sofia put those two loves together today and with the help of her little sister and daddy, they made these. How adorable, right?
Featured in the Family Fun magazine's December issue, this easy peasy recipe took less than 10 minutes and had everyone smiling. What's not to love about that???
What you'll need:
pretzel rods - they used 3 for each tree
chocolate chips to melt
sprinkles to decorate
What to do:
1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and have your kids set up the trees using 3 pretzel rods for each tree.
2. The kids can pour in the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe dish and the parent can melt the chocolate. Make sure not to overheat the chocolate or you'll end up with a lumpy, stiff mess that you'll have to throw out. And no one likes throwing out chocolate! We usually melt on low power in 15-20 second intervals, stir and repeat if necessary.
3. Scoop the melted chocolate into a plastic bag, seal and snip off one end of the bag to easily pipe over the pretzel tree.
4. Decorate and allow to set. Enjoy!
