How to make easy Christmas Tree Cupcakes using Pretzels! So fun!

Easy Christmas Tree Cupcakes


  • 1 box Pillsbury Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 C. milk
  • 1/2 C. sour cream
  • PRETZEL RODS 1-2 cups


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with cupcake liners.
  2. 2. Combine cake mix, eggs, oil, milk and sour cream.
  3. 3. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  4. 4. Let cool.
  5. 5. Break pretzel rods in half and lay out on parchment paper. Melt green melts (chocolate wafers meant for candy decorating, you can find them at Michael's or Hobby Lobby). Pour into a small plastic bag (see photo) and snip off the corner and drizzle over pretzels in the shape of a tree! (Be sure to leave plenty of room at the bottom of the pretzel to stick into the cupcake.) Because the chocolate melts rather fast, I would drizzle 3 trees and then top with sprinkles! Let cool for 5-10 minutes depending on the temp of your home!
  6. 6. Frosting cupcakes and roll in shredded coconut (that's totally optional, I like the "snowy" look it gives) and press in pretzel trees.
