Hello gorgeous! This just makes me happy…the red, the white, the blue.
The feelings of gratitude and the thoughts of hope that these colors spark.
This fun Memorial Day & July 4th Day snack will be a hit at your party, BBQ or with the kids!
It calls for all the fun colored candy melts, as well as star sprinkles (if you want to go all out!)
They are ‘no-bake’ so they are fast to prepare and you just wait a bit to let them set.
But if you can’t wait, you’ll have a delicious crumbly mess of a snack!! 😉
A quick note: I used small pretzel twists and grabbed a handful and then crushed them in my hands. I’d say they are “coarsely crushed.”
