July 4th Favors

It is difficult to comprehend that the July 4th holiday is behind us, where does time go? I hope all of you had a fantastic time with family and friends...we surely did! And many thanks to Andrea for providing a wonderful spot to view the parade! And one last note, congrats to Raegen for taking 1st place in the bike decorating contest!!!

Back to the favors...this is one quick, easy, and delicious treat!

As you can see, peanuts, pretzels, and white chocolate were the ingredients...oh, and a few decorative red, white, and blue sprinkles!

I made one batch and then decided it wasn't quite enough so preceded to prepare another.

Maggie had her own special mix, directly from the grocery store...she loves melts and freeze dried fruit.
Of course it needed to be as close to red, white, and blue as possible.

Festive Bark:

11 oz. bag of white chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups skinny pretzels, broken in half
1/2 cup roasted peanuts
Sprinkles, if desired

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper
Melt chips in the microwave (according to package directions)
To the melted chips, add pretzels and peanuts thoroughly but gently
Pour the mixture onto the paper lined cookie sheet and shake sprinkles over the top
Allow to cool and then package as desired

If you like the sweet/salty taste this is for you!
