Red, White and Blue Pretzels


I made red, white and blue pretzel snacks for the fireworks shows tonight. The salty and sweet combination is a perfect treat after a barbecue.

Ingredients:

bag of pretzel rods

bag of white chocolate tabs

bag of red chocolate tabs

bag of blue chocolate tabs

white sprinkles 

pretzel bags

red and blue ribbon

parchment paper

Directions:

Lay the pretzel rods out on parchment paper. Remove the broken pieces.


Melt the whole bag of white chocolate tabs and put the melted chocolate into a tall glass.


Twist and turn the pretzel rod around the glass and lay it on the parchment paper to set.


Melt about 3/4 of the bag of blue chocolate. Dip the top end into the blue melted chocolate. Add the white sprinkles while the blue chocolate is still wet. Wait for the blue chocolate to set.


Melt a small handful of the red tabs and but the melted tabs into a zipper top bag. Twist the red melted chocolate onto one end and snip a small hole with scissors. Make some stripes.


Once every pretzel is completely dry they can be packaged into some pretzel bags and tied with ribbon.


Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July! Happy birthday America!
