  • 1 package pretzel rods
  • 1 package white chocolate candy melts or white Almond Bark
  • red and blue mini M&Ms
  • red and blue sprinkles
  • 4 packages red Pop Rocks


  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
  • Melt candy melts in a double boiler or using the microwave.
  • Dip about 2/3 of a pretzel rod in melted white chocolate. It may be easier to pour the chocolate into a tall mug to do this. If the chocolate starts to get too thick, microwave it for 20 seconds.
  • Place on waxed paper. You will need the chocolate to set slightly before the M&Ms will adhere well. Decorate with sprinkles, Pop Rocks, and M&Ms.
  • Repeat with remaining pretzel rods.


Can be placed in the refrigerator if you want the chocolate to set up quickly.
