These 4th of July Pretzels are the perfect festive treat for a busy 4th of July day.
I love the 4th of July. It’s a day of celebration and it seems like everywhere you go everyone in town is out enjoying the parades and fireworks.
Growing up our small town had a festival by the water for the 4th of July with food tents, music, and games for the kids. It was one of my favorite things to as a kid. I would always look forward to it. They had tents of food ranging from Chinese to crab legs. You would buy tokens and pay for food and drinks all night. Way better than having to carry around cash or a credit card.
This little festival would go on for a few days leading up to the 4th of July and top off the final night with some amazing fireworks. Everyone would lay out blankets and enjoy watching the fireworks over the water.
What better way to celebrate America’s birthday than with these easy, no bake 4th of July pretzels!
How to make 4th of July Pretzels:
- yogurt covered pretzels
- 2 cups of each blue and red candy melts
- white pearl sprinkles
- decorating bags
Lay your pretzels onto a piece of parchment paper or paper plate.
In two small microwave safe bowls, heat 2 cups of each red and blue candy melts on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
Carefully pour each color candy melts into a decorating bag and cut a small tip off the bag.
Drizzle the melted blue candy melts over the top left corner of the pretzels and drizzle the melted red candy melts over the rest of the pretzels.
While the blue is still soft, add about 7 white pearl sprinkles on top for stars.
Carefully transfer to the freezer for about 15 minutes or until the candy melts have hardened.
