 Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. I love getting together with family to BBQ, enjoy a dip in the pool, and watch the fireworks. I think it's super fun to create a simple dessert tray with some patriotic foods to enjoy. For the Fourth, I put together a dessert plate of "Sparklers" and Red, White, and Blue {Ice Cream} Sandwiches. 
Must Try Monday {Fourth of July Dessert Plate}

To make the "Sparklers" {aka pretzel rods with sprinkles}, I melted some chocolate over a double boiler. Then, I dipped the ends of the pretzel rods in the chocolate and rolled them in sprinkles. Done! It was SUPER easy and added a festive touch.

Red, White, and Blue {Ice Cream} Sandwiches
*Graham crackers, broke in half
*Low fat cool whip
*Red, white, and blue sprinkles
1. Spread the cool whip between two graham crackers. Make sure you use enough cool whip to "smash" some out of the sides.
2. Roll the cool whip, that should be peeking out of the sides of the graham crackers, in some sprinkles.
3. Place them on a plate and freeze for a few hours. Freezing over night is best, but a few hours should harden the cool whip, too.
