Patriotic Pretzel Sticks

Celebrate the U.S.A. with these delicious, festive, kid friendly pretzel snacks!

Makes: 10-12 pretzel rods

Ingredients & Materials:

  • Vanilla Almond Bark (5-6 squares)
  • Pretzel Rods
  • Red, White and Blue Sprinkles
  • Wax Paper
  • Baking Sheet

 

Directions:

1. Melt Almond Bark squares in a microwave-safe bowl or cup (microwaving times vary; 45-60 seconds will usually be sufficient). While Almond Bark is microwaving, place a sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet.

2. Dip pretzel rod into melted Almond Bark, truning the bowl/cup as needed to evenly coat the top half of the pretzel.

4. Set pretzel onto wax paper covered baking sheet.

5. When all pretzels have been coated, put the baking sheet in the freezer or refrigerator for 10-20 minutes.

6. Take pretzels out of the fridge or freezer, carefully remove from wax paper and display them in a cute cup or container.

Enjoy!
