CANDY MELTS Candy: Red, Bright White, Dark Green
12-count candy decorating bags

1.Separately melt each color of Candy Melts candy following package directions. Place melted candy into separate decorating bags. (Optional: to help keep bags closed use bag ties. Keep candy warm on warming tray.)
2.Place pretzel rods (one at a time) on cooling grid over parchment paper. Cut 1/4″ off end of bags. Beginning at one end, pipe stripes of candy on pretzels in this order: red, white, green, white. Continue alternating colors, leaving about 3 1/2″ to 4″ of bare pretzel at bottom. Tap gently to smooth out candy.
3.Use tweezers to immediately apply sprinkles to white candy only. Set aside on parchment-covered board. Repeat with more pretzel rods. After about 5 to 6 treats, refrigerate for 10 minutes to set. Repeat steps until desired number of treats are made.
