Treat Day: Memorial Day

Red, White and Blue is the theme for this Memorial Day weekend! Lots of great treats, chips and dip, barbeque, and laughs will be going on at the lake with friends! I hope everyone has a fabulous long weekend! Below is a recipe for chocolate dipped pretzels by Emily, from Cupcakes and Cashmere. I thought they were a cute and easy festive treat to bring to any backyard barebque.  

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels (adapted from Paula Deen) 

Ingredients 

24 pretzel rods (any brand)

1 12-ounce package milk chocolate chips

1 12- ounce package white chocolate chips

1 package of red, white, and blue sprinkles

Directions

Place milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips in 2 microwave- safe bowls.  Microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir with a spatula.  If chips are not melted after stirring, place in the microwave for 15 seconds, then stir again until chocolate is melted.  

Dip one pretzel rod into the milk chocolate; use a spoon or butter knife to spread the chocolate about halfway up the rod. Twist the rod to let the excess chocolate drip off. Hold the rod over a piece of wax paper and shake sprinkles on all sides. Place the pretzel on another piece of wax paper to dry. Coat another pretzel with white chocolate and sprinkles. Repeat until you’ve coated all the pretzels, half with milk chocolate, half with white chocolate, and let dry completely, about 24 hours. 

Enjoy!
