  6. Melt the candy melts in fifteen second increments in the microwave until they’re all melted.
  7. Pour melted candy melts into a squeeze bottle.
  8. Squeeze the chocolate onto the pretzels in a zigzag line starting from top to bottom until it forms a tree (Start off small, then work your way a little bigger with each zigzag line.).
