1 teaspoon coconut or olive oil
1 cup dark green candy melts
20 pretzel sticks
Decorative Christmas sprinkles
Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper.
Lay your pretzel sticks on the paper, spaced apart.
In a small bowl add candy melts and oil, mix and microwave 30 seconds. Stir and microwave in 15 second intervals until well mixed and smooth.
Pour candy mixture into a piping or zip lock bag. Snip a small end of the bag off with scissors.
Starting about 2/3 of an inch up the pretzel stick, make a zig zag pattern back and forth up the pretzel stick doing larger zig zag motions at the bottom (for the widest part of the tree) and getting smaller as you work your way to the top.
Once your tree is formed, sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles as desired.
Repeat for all pretzels.
Allow to cool at room temperature or place in fridge for 10 minutes to harden.
