Three cheers for the holidays. Make this patriotic treat for your summertime holiday gathering.

Red, white, and blue bark

Red and blue M&M'S and sprinkles, and white chocolate add to the fun of this tasty and patriotic snack. Red, white and blue bark is festive and makes the perfect treat for a Memorial Day gathering.

I used pretzel sticks as a base, then poured the melted white chocolate over them. To top things off I added Oreo cookie crumbs, M&M'S and sprinkles. Get creative and add the red, white and blue candy or cookies of your choice.

Red, white and blue bark

Yields approximately 8-10 servings


  • 1/2 cup small pretzel sticks
  • 1 pound white chocolate candy melting disks
  • 5 Oreo cookies, crumbled into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup blue and red M&M'S
  • Edible, decorative sprinkles


  1. Add parchment paper to a baking sheet.
  2. Spread the pretzels in 1 layer over about 3/4 of the baking sheet. Keep them in a rectangular shape, a few inches from the edges of the pan.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate candy in the microwave in 15-second increments. Stir the candy to ensure it’s melted.
  4. Pour the melted candy evenly over the pretzels. You may need to smooth it over with a spoon.
  5. Scatter the cookie pieces and M&M'S evenly over the melted chocolate, and shake the candy sprinkles over the top.
  6. Place the pan in the refrigerator on a flat surface for about 30 minutes, so the melted candy sets.
  7. Remove the pan from the refrigerator. Use your hands to break apart the candy into 3- or 4-inch pieces.
  8. Keep refrigerated or in a cool place until ready to serve.

Celebrate with this colorful candy treat.
