ahhh! summer! now that the 4th is over, what else can we celebrate?
how about sunshine, candy bark, and…pretzels?
lookie! it’s Funshine Sunshine Pretzel Bark! 🙂 a treat you and your kiddies can make and enjoy.
hello everyone! it’s lisa from hoopla palooza, a blog that is seriously fun and chock full of happy tutes that’s fit for every kid at heart. it’s always a wonderful treat to be here on
design dazzle’s summer wonderful series!
while i was thinking of a kid’s craft, i couldn’t help but think about a cute summer goodie the kids can help make with some adult help. here’s what you need to make your own funshine sunshine pretzel bark:
- parchment paper
- vanilla almond bark
- piping bag
- blue candy food coloring
- white and blue sprinkles of your choice
- ring pretzels
- mini pretzel sticks
- yellow candy melt discs
- candy eyes
- red food marker
ok first step is to melt the almond bark and put about a 1/4 cup aside in a piping bag. next, color the rest of the almond bark a light sky blue color with the candy food coloring. then:
at this point the candy is starting to firm up a little so the more help with the next step the better.
and placing the pretzels as shown is something the kids can do too, ass the sun “rays” do not have to be perfect.
ok we can’t have funshine sunshine without some eyes right? so add some using some leftover almond bark in the piping bag as glue to attach the little candy eyes.
then have your kiddo draw on the funshine smile with a red food marker.
and here you will have a skyfull of funshine sunshine pretzel bark!
allow to dry then cut in pieces.
you can bag them up for some funshine in your pocket 🙂
it’s guaranteed for a summer sunshine day!
