The kitchen is one of my favorite places to bond with my children. Helping out in the kitchen is something they always look forward to, especially during the holiday season – the best time of year for bonding! One of our all-time favorite holiday traditions is making seasonal desserts, such as holiday-oriented pies and cookies. Our stove and oven get quite a workout during this time of year. Lately, my family has been enjoying treats that don’t require an oven like these Mini Muffins with Christmas Tree Candy Melt Toppers. These scrumptious treats are a harmonious balance of salty and sweet.
All that is needed is a box of your favorite Entenmann’s® Little Bites®, such as the Butter Cookie flavor; candy melts, frosting, mini pretzel sticks, “ornaments” in the form of sprinkles or Sixlets, parchment paper, and your imagination!
My oldest son had so much fun creating these Christmas tree toppers. To make the Christmas tree candy melt toppers, simply heat the candy melts in the microwave until they’re efficiently melted (30 – 45 seconds), carefully place pretzel sticks on parchment paper, pipe your candy melts over the pretzel sticks to create a Christmas tree, and decorate each tree immediately with sugar pearls, Sixlets, or sprinkles (optional). Then, wait for your Christmas trees to completely dry before placing them on top of the mini muffins. While waiting for them to dry, frost the muffins and feel free to add coconut shreds for an even more snowy effect. Easy peasy!
