These Christmas Tree Cupcake Toppers are a simple and festive way to decorate a dozen cupcakes for the holidays. Made with pretzel sticks, candy melts and sprinkles.
I don’t know why but the older I’ve gotten the less patience I have for complicated baking projects. I’ll bake a simple cake but not decorate it. Or I’ll make some cute decorations like these Christmas Tree Cupcake Toppers, but I’ll probably not also have time to bake a batch of cupcakes from scratch to go with them. Maybe it’s because my kids are older and so busy. My driving duties take priority.

How to make Christmas Tree Cupcake Toppers:
- Purchase candy melts like these and melt according to package directions
- Place the melted candy melt chocolate into a zippered bag
- Cut a very small hole in one corner of the bag
- Place pretzel sticks on a cutting board or sheet pan lined with parchment paper
- Pipe the melted chocolate onto the pretzel sticks in the shape of Christmas trees
- Decorate with candy sprinkles
- Allow the trees to harden and then gently remove them from the parchment paper
- The toppers can be made up to two days in advance – keep them in an airtight container until ready to use.
