Patriotic Pretzels... Dip pretzel sticks in canned whipped frosting then cover in sprinkles. Place in the fridge for a bit before serving. TIP stir frosting well, when dipping pretzel use a swirl method to get just the right amount of frosting. The kids love making these!
Red... The candy aisle is full of red treats! A bowl full of Swedish Fish or use skewers to make 'fishing poles' like my daughter Annie created. She placed a piece of licorice over the skewer then caught a swedish fish. #clever Wrap up pieces of licorice with ribbon scraps.
