Need a fun snack to bring to a 4th of July celebration? These Red, White and Blue Pretzels are delicious. The filling is made with Duncan Hines frosting creations flavors in Cotton Candy and Bubble Gum!
Once upon a time 4th of July was my favorite holiday. I loved everything red, white and blue. In college, my dorm was decorated with flag stuff. I bought all sorts of American Eagle clothing that had flags featured on them.
I was obsessed.
I loved fireworks. The National Anthem. And all the carnivals and festivals that always happened around the 4th of July (Taste of Chicago anyone???)
Then came the children…and the crying at the loud BOOMS. And the wanting to play with sparklers because “all the other kids have them.” (yes, let’s give little kids hot sticks with fire on the end…kind of reminds me of why I hate s’mores too).
Anyways, my kids are finally getting to an age where the 4th of July is fun again. I can relax now when they hold a Sparkler (well, kind of relax). I can sit in a chair and watch the fireworks and not listen to anyone cry (well, unless you count my crazy dogs who are TERRIFIED of the fireworks). And, I can enjoy all the delicious snacks and drinks that happen at potlucks!
These little candies are the perfect thing to bring. They not only make the kids happy, but one bite and you will be brought back to childhood. Sticky cotton candy. Chewy bubble gum!
Have you tried the new Frosting Creations mixes from Duncan Hines? The idea is you take one of the little flavor packets, mix it into one of the canned frostings and BOOM. Delicious frosting flavors!
However, I’m not always a rule follower. I love adding these little mixes to OTHER things for the fireworks of flavor.
I used Snyder’s mini pretzels, but you could also use snaps (the waffle looking pretzels) or there is a Patriotic pretzel shapes package in the stores too (from Snyder’s)! You decide, just make them, K?
