Parties for the Fourth of July can be so festive. And it is so easy to keep them fuss free. There are so many options for decorating and enjoying the day. Visit the Dollar Store for a treasue trove of inexpensive flags, red tablecloths, patriotic serving ware and lots of other chintz.
And these pretzel sticks dipped in CandiQuik Coating and sprinkled with red, white and blue are a great choice for an inexpensive and yummy addition to your dessert menu. I have been using CandiQuik for as long as I can remember. I have dipped so many things in it, and it works great. It melts easily and drys quickly so that it adheres easily to the pretzels. Feel free to use whatever kind of dipping chocolate you have on hand, CandiQuik just works great for me.
I fill all kinds of interesting glasses with the pretzels and tie ribbons around them. They look beautiful and really help bring on the festiveness. And everybody loves munching on them.
You can even dip marshmallows as well. Strawberries would also be cute!! The kids will love these! Both the pretzels and the marshmallows are the perfect dessert additions to your holiday buffet. They will go well with homemade ice cream, strawberry shortcake or this awesome Fourth of July cake.
There is hardly a recipe but I'll write it down anyway...
- One bag large sized pretzels
- 1 tray Vanilla CandiQuik Coating
- red, white and blue sprinkles
- Melt CandiQuik according to package directions. Quickly dip pretzels or marshmallows in CandiQuik and place on parchment paper. Let CandiQuik set for one minute then sprinkle with sprinkles.
Place these anywhere and everywhere you want it to look like a celebration!
