I love easy last minute ideas! Just about as much as I love chocolate covered pretzels. And as a bonus, they can be made up ahead of time!
You can pick up almost any color in candy melts from Wal-mart or Michaels. All you need is red, white and blue candy melts, some pretzels rods and white sprinkles.
I started with the white melts. Melt in the microwave according to package directions. Dip two thirds of the pretzel rod in the white candy melts. Lay the pretzels out to dry on parchment paper or cooling rack with wax paper underneath.
Allow them to dry completely.
Next you will melt the blue candy melts. Dip the top third of the white section of the pretzel in the blue candy melts. While it is the blue section is still wet, sprinkle with the white sprinkles. Again, allow to dry.
Finally, melt the red candy melts. Pour the melted red candy into a plastic baggie. Cut the corner of the baggie and drizzle the candy melts over the white section.
After the pretzels dry, you have the perfect patriotic treat for your party! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to break out for your party!
Display your American Flag Dipped Pretzels on a party tray or in mason jars as pictured above! Your guests are sure to love them!
