Are you having a holiday party? Or do you just want to have a special sweet treat for when you wake up on Christmas morning. Desserts are important. It’s what everybody really comes to Christmas parties for (and also the reason it’s so hard to stay slim). We have found some festive and delicious holiday treats that are not only adorable but super tasty as well.

Peanut Butter Christmas Trees


  • 5 tablespoons creamy peanut butter softened
  • 5 tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 24 tree shaped pretzels
  • a bag of green candy melts
  • decorations
  1. Mix peanut butter and powdered sugar together.
  2. Spread evenly on the pretzels, setting them on wax paper.
  3. Put the pretzels in the freezer for 15 minutes.  While they are setting, melt the candy melts following the instructions on the bag.
  4. Take pretzels out of the freezer and dip them in the chocolate.
  5. After the trees have dried, melt some additional green chocolate and use it as the glue to add your stars and other decorations.
