Red, White and Blue Pretzels

 

Happy Flag Day. 
 
Once upon a time the Fourth of July was my favorite holiday. I loved it more than Christmas, more than my birthday. Why?


 I was obsessed with flags.
 
My best friend in high school even made me a pair of flag shorts out of an old pair of blue jeans.

 

My husband planned his proposal to me around the 4th of July (although that’s not when he actually proposed, but it was his intention anyways). 
 
I find it only fitting I share my red white and blue pretzels with all of you today! These are super easy to make, even the kids can help! Change up the colors for other holidays too.

Red, White and Blue Pretzels

Ingredients:

  • 16oz bag Snyder's Olde Tyme Pretzel twists
  • 24oz vanilla candy coating, melted
  • sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Melt candy coating in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted (usually takes about 90 seconds). Dip pretzel COMPLETELY (both sides!!) in chocolate. Sprinkle immediately with colored sprinkles. Allow to set on wax paper (about 30 minutes). Store in tightly sealed container, or ziploc. ENJOY.
