  • 2 Cups Twist Pretzels
  • ½ Cup White Chocolate Chips
  • ½ Cup Blue Candy Melting Wafers
  • ¼ Cup Red Candy Melting Wafers
  • Red White, & Blue Sprinkles


  • Begin by placing your cooling rack over the flexible cutting board. This will help catch the extra candy melts, white chocolate, and sprinkles that fall through the cooling rack when decorating.
  • Spread the pretzels across the cooling rack, placing them as close together as possible, while not overlapping.
  • In a glass bowl, melt the blue candy melting wafers in the microwave, heating in 15 seconds increments. After 15 seconds, take out and stir well with a silicone spatula. Return for an additional 15 seconds, until completely melted and smooth.
  • Allow the blue candy melting wafers to cool slightly, then holding one of the sandwich baggies open with the palm of your hand, put the blue candy into the bag. Make sure to add it into one of the bottom corners of the bag, so that it looks like a cone shape when you hold the baggie.
  • Cut a very small diagonal line across the bottom corner of the baggie. Begin piping the blue candy melts across the pretzels in a horizontal line, moving right to left.
  • Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 with the white chocolate chips, but instead pipe the white chocolate in vertical lines, moving up and down the pretzels.
  • Next, repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 with the red candy melting wafers, but pipe the red wafers in a diagonal line across the pretzels.
  • While the candy melts and white chocolate are still warm, sprinkle the red, white, and blue sprinkles on top of the pretzels. The sprinkles will stick to the warm candy and chocolate to keep them from falling off.
  • Place the cooling rack in the refrigerator to set for approximately 1-2 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator, and break up the pretzels. Enjoy!
