White Chocolate Christmas Trees Recipe
One of the best ways to celebrate Christmas is with a holiday-themed recipe. This year, why not try something new? These white chocolate trees are easy to make and only take a few ingredients. Not only can you eat these little treats on their own, but we also use them to decorate gingerbread houses, cakes, cupcakes, and even cookie plates for the holiday season!
What you'll need:
White Chocolate - You'll need 50 grams of white chocolate chips.
Pretzels - You'll be needing 15-20 pretzel sticks. Make sure they're not too thick, otherwise they won't work.
Sprinkles - If you want to make your trees festive, get a mixture of festive Christmas sprinkles.
Piping Bag - You'll need a piping bag or heat-resistant Ziplock bag to pipe the chocolate onto the pretzels.
Parchment Paper/Butter Paper - You'll need two to three sheets of parchment paper.
Prep your baking space - Lay out your parchment paper and prepare the toppings. Once the chocolate has melted, you'll need to be ready to move quickly so everything needs to be prepared in advance.
Melt the Chocolate - Use a heat-proof glass or bowl to melt the chocolate chips. Microwave until completely dissolved (usually 30 seconds to a minute). If you stir it periodically and make sure it's not burning, it should be done soon.
To Make Trees - Start by melting white chocolate in the microwave until no chunks remain. Place the pretzels on the parchment paper with several inches between them. Use a piping bag or plastic bag to pipe the chocolate over the pretzels in a Christmas tree shape.
Decorate the Trees - Add the sprinkles to the trees with a spoon or your fingers.
Allow it to Set - Let the trees set for up to two hours to allow them to harden. If you'd like this process to go quicker, place them in your fridge for 30 minutes. Carefully peel the trees off of the parchment paper.
After letting the white chocolate harden for about two hours, decorate with sprinkles from your fingers or a spoon. Let them set before removing them from the parchment and enjoy!
The Christmas trees taste rich and melt in your mouth when you use premium Belgian white chocolate. You can order them from Linoui.
