A fun 4th of July recipe!

Hello all. We have been at the lake soaking up some sun and doing some fishing. So I have been missing in action. I wanted to post a fun recipe that my kids really like.

Pretzel Sparklers
Milk chocolate or white chocolate chips (follow directions on package to melt)
package (10 ounces) pretzel rods
Colored candy stars or sprinkles

Dip each pretzel rod about halfway into chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Sprinkle with stars. Place on waxed paper to dry. Yield: about 2 dozen.

Wishing you all a safe and happy 4th of July....I hope your day is filled with all things fun, family and friends! :)

I will leave you with a picture of one of my flower pots I have on my deck! Isn't it PERTY! :)

hey there farmchick! I dont know how I've missed the last batch of your posts, but I did! I see youve been busy! Maybe things will slow down a little now that the planting is done?? or not.. I know our farmers around here are always busy doing something! and I do believe your farm is bigger then most of the ones around here.. well, I say that, but I really have no clue what I'm talking about! haha!
that pulled pork sandwhich back a few sure looks good. I've been cooking all day, but for tomorrow, I didnt make anything for tonight. I did eat a tuna sandwhich around 3:00. but its 8:00 now and I'm hungry!!! wish I had you to cook for me! heehee!
ok.. well, its going to be toast or icecream... and.. I think the ice vcream is going to win!
Have a great 4th of july!

My family and I enjoyed your Pulled Pork recipe yesterday. It was easy and delicious. I know why you make the buns. The ones from the store were too wimpy and I served it more on the fashion of an open-faced sandwich. But they were very good!

I make the pretzels for Christmas but this idea is just perfect! I can see them for each Holiday!! I am going to buy the seasonal sprinkles and make them for each Holiday now. Thanks so much for that idea.

Have a great 4th!!

We've made those with the kids, they are a big hit! We stick them in the freezer for a couple minutes to set quickly. The kids like them cold anyways.

Have a wonderful Independence Day!
