quick dessert ideas
4th of july candy and dessert

Our favorite: Chocolate Dipped Pretzels - here's the easiest dessert recipe ever! Buy a bag of pretzel rods, a bag of chocolate candy wafers used for candy molding (or a bag of chocolate chips), a container of sprinkles or baking sugars in the color of your choice and you are ready to make a delicious dessert. Pour half the bag into the top of a double boiler, add 1 tbsp. of crisco, butter or cooking oil and slowly melt on the stove. Once it is a melted, creamy consistency, take a knife and coat the top half of the pretzel rod with the melted chocolate. If you dip, you will not get much of the pretzel rod coated. Next put your decorations on a sheet of wax paper and roll the chocolate coated pretzel it into the sprinkles. Allow to cool in a tall glass or on a piece of wax paper.  Or 4th of July bark.. melt white chocolate and pour on cookie sheet, add festive red, white and blue sprinkles and MnM's and refreigerate! Cut when cooled.
