Large pretzel sticks  
1 cup of white icing
1 cup of blue icing
1 cup of red icing
White sprinkles
1 resealable plastic bag 

1. Dip approximately 2/3 of your pretzel stick in white icing. Repeat with every pretzel and set the coated sticks aside to dry.
2. Once your pretzels have dried, dip the top of your pretzels (which have already been coated in white icing at this point) in blue icing. It will look like you have one strip of white, and then another strip of blue.
3. While your blue icing is still wet, place sprinkles in the icing. Set aside to dry.
4. Pour the red icing into a ziplock bag and cut the corner of the baggy. Drizzle the icing over the white section of the pretzels to create stripes. Set aside to dry. 
5. Enjoy!

There you have it. A simple, patriot snack that will be perfect for any 4th of July celebration. If you make them, be sure to snap a picture and share it with us on TwitterFacebook, or Instagram. We hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July!
