You can create chocolate covered pretzels for just about any holiday or event. They are simple and chocolate discs come in almost every color you might need. To get ready for all the patriotic holidays this summer, we decided to create this fun patriotic food idea of flag pretzels. Who does not love the idea of chocolate sweetness and pretzel saltiness? It is a always a win win at our parties. These sweet and salty treats do not last long on our dessert table. Make a big patch of these for your Memorial Day Party or Fourth of July picnic. Wrap them individually for great bbq party favors or just place them in an inexpensive jar or vase. I can’t wait to see what type patriotic food ideas you have made for summer parties.
Patriotic Food Idea: Flag Pretzels
All you need for these fun patriotic food are pretzel rods, red white and blue chocolate discs.
Start with the white discs first and cover the rods almost to the top. Leaving some space if you chose to.
When the white chocolate sets, you can then dip the tips of the pretzel into blue chocolate.
When the blue chocolate dries, melt the red chocolate discs in a plastic ziploc or a piping bag and drizzle the red stripes of the flag onto the white portion of the flag pretzels.
Here is the view of the flag pretzels from the top.
When they are completely dry, you can fill a glass jar or glass vase with colored candy and stand up your patriotic dessert for your dessert table. Super simple yet has the perfect touch for any summer holiday party.
Your guests will go crazy over these flag pretzels if not just for the sweet and salty flavor combination.
