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.
CANDY CANE OREO BROWNIES
4 ounces box brownie mix (plus ingredients on the box)
3 ounces package of candy cane OREOS
1/2 cup White chocolate (melted), for drizzling on top
Crushed candy canes
Pre-heat oven to 325°F.
Mix the brownie batter according to package with ingredients on the box.
Dip Oreos in the brownie batter and then place them in the bottom of the cupcake tins that have been generously sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until done. Once you remove your pan from the oven, take a plastic knife and run along edges. I had to use a few plastic knives, as they started to melt. Then use a fork to pop them out and set on a cooling rack.
Once the brownies have cooled, drizzle with melted chocolate and top with crushed candy canes.
