Red, White, and Blue Pretzel Rods
Gramp this summer was "Stars and Stripes" so for a snack one day, the kids made these pretzel rods. We melted a large bar of white chocolate in a double-broiler (a bowl of chocolate in a larger bowl of really hot water on the stove top). Then we dipped the pretzel rods into the chocolate, using a spoon to spread the chocolate evenly. While the chocolate was still wet, we sprinkled red and blue sugar on the pretzels and rested them to cool on parchment paper. I wrote names on the paper so that we'd know which was which when it came time to eat our snack.
