  • 24 large pretzel twists (I used Snyder’s Old Tyme brand)

  1. 1. Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper. Set aside.
  2. 2. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave 1 tablespoon shortening for 45 seconds. Add the blue or white chocolate melts and stir until melted (depending on what color you choose)
  3. 3. Spoon the blue melted chocolate over 12 of the pretzels coating each pretzel evenly. Place on cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart from each other.
  4. 4. Immediately sprinkle your choice of red, white and blue jimmies and sprinkles and white sugar pearls on the pretzels before the chocolate completely hardens.
  5. 5. Let pretzels “set” on cookie sheets for 30 minutes before serving.
