Martha's Pretzel Sparklers

Pretzel Sparklers       
Like most sparklers, these are extinguished after a short while -- with several large bites.
  • To make two dozen - place 4 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted; remove from heat.
  • Using a pastry brush, coat the upper third of each pretzel rod in chocolate.
  • Cover with sprinkles; stand pretzels upright in a glass.
  • Place in the refrigerator until firm, about 5 minutes.

Happy 4th to you too. I wanted to let you know I am slowly feeling better too. I'm still working in my garden, but take breaks.
Ooohh, those pretzels are so splendidly fun and festive! I love the salty + sweet combo of dessert pretzels like this - and the fact that forgoing the blue sprinkles are all it would take to make them perfect for Canada Day, too.

Wishing you a thoroughly fantastic 4th of July celebration, dear lady!

Looks like you had a glorious celebration... what cute ideas! My grand-daughter turned three on the 4th so we spent the day with her. So wonderful to see the world through the eyes of a little one.
Lots of good ideas for next year Elizabeth! Wishing you a great week ahead!
