Christmas Pretzel Bites

Gather the ingredients - * Pretzels * Caramel * Red candy melts * Green candy melts * White candy melts * Shortening * Sprinkles

Unwrap the caramels and cut them in half with a sharp knife.

- Lay 24 of the pretzels in a single layer on your prepared baking sheets and then top with 1/2 of a caramel on each pretzel. – Place in the oven for about 5 minutes. – Remove from the oven and quickly press the remaining pretzels into the caramel.

Place red candy melts in a microwave safe bowl with about a teaspoon of  shortening.  Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each  until the candy is completely melted and smooth.

– Place the melted chocolate in a piping bag and clip off the point to create a small opening. – Drizzle the red chocolate over each pretzel until they are all covered.

Repeat the melting and drizzling process with both the green candy melts and the white candy melts.

Sprinkle on any sprinkles immediately and then let them cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.
