Put the cookie sheet in the oven for 3-4 minutes or until the chocolate has softened. Take out and immediately add the Christmas holly candies. Leave set at room temperature for about 10 minutes to harden. Enjoy!

Easy as pie! I told you. Hardly any time to assemble and it will take even less time to eat.

But people will remember these treats for years to come. Here’s my official warning though: once you start making these goodies…. you will always be expected to make them!!

Once this dessert is completely cooled, transfer them into cellophane bags and tie them with some festive ribbons. If you want to take it up an additional notch, don’t forget your Christmas card! Write a personal greeting filled with festive cheer.

Other options to consider are:

  • Holiday Pretzel Gift Towers: Stack these red and green pretzels into your own design.
  • Christmas Pretzel Party Favor Bags: Use cupcake liners – either red or green – and fill them with your baked desserts.
  • Christmas Pretzel Christmas Tree: This option takes the most effort and time, but will certainly wow the crowd! Make a holiday tree while the chocolate is still hardening.

Freeze Ahead?

You can absolutely make these holiday pretzels ahead of time and freeze them – weeks in advance. Just make sure you put them on the counter and allow them to thaw out in room temperature, giving yourself ample time for thawing.
