Patriotic Pretzels

Show off your patriotism and sweet tooth with these easy to make patriotic pretzels.  You will need pretzel rods, candy wafers and M&Ms (red and blue picked out).

Start with 2 bowls. Pour the bag of M&Ms in one bowl and instruct your child to pick out the blue and red and place them in the other bowl. Using a double boiler, melt the candies. Be sure to stir it frequently.  If you don’t have a double boiler, use 2 pots or 1 pot and 1 pan. You just need them to fit on top of each other so you can place boiling water in the bottom pot to slowly melt the chocolate in the top pot.

Use a spoon to crush the M&Ms. Spoon the melted chocolate over half of the pretzel rod and then sprinkle with the crushed M&Ms. Lay it on a piece of wax paper to cool and harden. The kids screamed with joy when they saw the finished product!
