Instructions
Making the Chocolate Pretzel Rods
  1. Begin by heating water in your double boiler (or larger pot) on medium heat. Fill the smaller pot with about 6 oz of melting chocolate wafers and place inside the larger pot.
  2. Stir constantly and remove from heat as soon as the chocolates have melted.
  3. Set your pretzel mold on a flat surface and fill each tree with a pinch of the holiday sprinkles.
  4. Using a spoon, carefully scoop out the melted chocolate and fill each tree of the mold.
  5. Place a pretzel rod in each section, about half way up the tree mold. Roll the pretzel rod once in the chocolate until the top section in the mold is coated completely.
  6. Place the mold with pretzels in the refrigerator to set for 5 - 10 minutes.
  7. Simply pull the chocolates out of the mold and set aside as you repeat the process.
Making the Fruit Skewers
  1. Place a blueberry about two inches down from the top of each skewer (this keeps other fruit in place).
  2. Slide a slice of kiwi onto the skewer, resting on the blueberry.
  3. Add blueberries and raspberries until you reach the top of the skewers.
  4. Arrange the pretzel rods and fruit skewers in an appropriate vase or glass, depending on the size (you may choose to separate the arrangement in half and place one on either end of the table.)
