I will be the first to admit: I am a snacker.
I will never be happy with just 3 square meals. It is so much more fun to have room for a few little fun bites here and there. I’m pretty good about snacking on fruit; if it’s here I will totally eat it. I don’t even want to tell you how many seedless watermelons I’ve knocked over in recent weeks.
Pretzels are also pretty high up on my snack list, but in my humble opinion, pretzels as a snack are a little bit sad without one crucial thing: PEANUT BUTTER. I am not above putting the spoon in the peanut butter jar, but honestly, if you lug around a jar of peanut butter wherever you go, people will look at you weird. #fact
But I have recently discovered the little single serving Jif To Go cups. They will fit in lunch boxes! You can take them to the pool! I can put peanut butter in my purse and no one will think I am weird.
Okay maybe that’s stretching it a little.
This weekend for the 4th we will be hitting up as many fireworks shows as time will allow, which means I need to have a car full of snacks on the ready for 3 days straight. I thought these Patriotic Pretzel Dippers would be a super fun snack – and they are the perfect thing to dip in the little single-serve peanut butter cups. This barely qualifies as a recipe, but if you are anything like me, you are pretty well checked out this week — it’s all about minimal effort over here!
Apples + Jif To Go Peanut Butter + Sprinkles is also a way you could go here. I’m always up for sprinkles.
- 2 cups pretzel thins
- ½ cup candy melts
- sprinkles (see note)
- **you will also need wax paper**
- Lay a piece of wax paper over a baking sheet and measure out your pretzels.
- Melt the candy melts according to the package directions for either the stove or the microwave. Make sure to stir frequently as you heat the candy melts.
- Dip the pretzel thins into the melted candy, shake off any excess, and then add sprinkles.
- Let them cool completely before removing from the wax paper.
