Red White and Blue Pretzel Bites are easy to make with mini candy bars sandwiched between pretzels. A fun patriotic dessert for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day!
It’s time to start sharing red, white and blue desserts so that you will be ready when the summer holidays hit.
With Memorial Day at the start of summer, 4th of July in the middle, and Labor Day at the end, there are lots of opportunities to make patriotic desserts.
These red white and blue pretzel bites are an easy treat to make and look pretty on the dessert table at a potluck or barbecue.
It’s a wonderful combination of crunchy, salty pretzels and sweet, creamy chocolate. Plus, the candy bars have caramel, nougat and/or nuts in them adding a delicious surprise.

Red White and Blue Pretzel Bites Recipe
Put mini candy bars on square pretzels on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat. I used Milky Way, Snickers and 3 Musketeers.
Bake at 300° for about 3 minutes to soften the chocolate, but not completely melt it.
Top with another pretzel and gently press it into the chocolate.
Allow the chocolate to cool and harden.
Melt red, white and blue candy melts in small bowls in the microwave.
Stir until smooth.
Dip the candy bar pretzel bites halfway into the melted candy.
Sprinkle with red, white and blue sprinkles and put them back on the silicone mat to cool and harden.
Patriotic desserts don’t get much easier than this with only four ingredients needed.
These Red White and Blue Pretzel Bites are so much fun all of the summer holidays: Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day!
