Patriotic Pretzel Pops

by Jenna Gleason

This simple, sweet treat reminds me of sparklers...who doesn't love sparklers?! If you’re looking to make a quick snack, that’s also visually appealing, give this Patriotic Pretzel Pops a try. People love them because they’re both sweet and salty!


Pretzel Rods (20-30)

12oz Bag of White Chocolate Chips

12oz Bag of Red Candy Melts (Found at Michael’s or Walmart)

Blue Food Coloring




Step 1: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2: Separate your chocolate chips into 2 bowls. One for white, and another for blue.

Step 3: Melt your chocolate chips by following the instructions on the bag or melt in the microwave for one minute at a time.

Step 4: Dip each pretzel rod in the white chocolate. Then, using a fork drizzle the blue chocolate on the parts of the pretzel rod that you want to be blue. Put white sprinkles on top of the blue drizzled chocolate.

Step 5: Place the red candy melts into a ziploc bag, and microwave for one minute to melt. Cut the tip of the bag and drizzle it over the white chocolate.

Step 6: Gently tap off excess chocolate and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pretzel rods.

Step 7: Place in fridge to allow chocolate to harden. Pull them out when you’re ready to serve!
