I love easy last minute ideas! Just about as much as I love chocolate covered pretzels. These American Flag Dipped Pretzels are perfect for your summer celebration! 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. Lay out on parchment paper or cooling rack with wax paper underneath.
Allow them to dry.
Next you will melt the blue candy melts. Dip the top third of the white section in the blue. While it is still wet, sprinkle with the white sprinkles. Allow to dry.
Finally, melt the red candy melts. Pour melted red candy into plastic baggie. Cut the corner of the baggie and drizzle over the white section.
After they dry, you have the perfect patriotic treat for your party!
