If you’re looking for a quick, inexpensive yet incredibly adorable dessert, then you have come to the right place. Today I’m going to show you how to make Patriotic Dipped pretzels! And yes, they taste just as good as they look.
Patriotic Dipped Pretzel rods are great to make for family get-togethers, BBQ’s or just because. And they are especially great for the upcoming 4th of July holiday.
The great thing about these 4th of July Pretzels is the fact that you can make them ahead of time. I will normally make mine a day or so before the event and then pop them in the fridge. That way they don’t melt or start to run. (It gets pretty hot here in Oklahoma during July).
So to make these White chocolate dipped pretzels you’ll need just a few things. The most important thing is of course the pretzels. I prefer to use this brand of Pretzels because they don’t break as easily as some of the name brand or cheaper kinds.
The next most important thing is the SPRINKLES! Now since these are a festive fourth of July dessert you will need to have lot’s of Patriotic themed sprinkles. Here are a few of my favorites.
The last thing you are going to need is White Chocolate Candy Melts. Wilton makes a really bright white kind that I just love. It’s hard to find a bright white chocolate candy melt.
How to Make Patriotic Dipped Pretzel Rods
These pretzel rods are super easy. I normally will use a medium size microwave safe cup to melt my chocolate in. This just makes it easier to dip the pretzels into. If your chocolate starts to harden just pop it back into the microwave for a few seconds and stir. I’ve included an easy printable instruction sheet below with step by step instructions on how to make these easy 4th of July pretzels.
Easy 4th of July Dessert!
- 1 Bag Pretzel rods
- 1 12 Oz Bag White Chocolate Candy Melts
In a medium microwave safe cup, pour about 1 cup of the Candy Melts into the cup and microwave in 20 second increments. Stir in between.
When Candy is melted take each pretzel rod and dip inside the cup making sure to cover 3/4 of the pretzel rod with the chocolate.
Immediately pour sprinkles over the chocolate.
Place finished pretzel rods onto wax paper and let try completely.
