Sweetworks 4th of July

My son loves helping me out whenever I cook or prepare food — especially when it involves anything sweet. And when Sweetworks sent me a huge package of candy and I told him we will be making treats, he got excited!

Fourth of July is coming up and a lot of us will be having family reunions during the holiday. If you want to involve your kids in preparing treats for your celebration, then here are some easy treats that you can do with little ones!

Patriotic Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

Sweetworks 4

A few years ago, a friend gave me some chocolate covered pretzel rods for Christmas and I’ve been in love with these snacks ever since. So I decided to create some 4th of July-themed chocolate covered pretzel rods using the foiled solid milk chocolates and candy crumble from SweetWorks.

Instructions: Melt 2 cups of milk chocolate (grated for quick melting) and 2 tbsp shortening by placing it in a bowl and placing that bowl on a wider bowl with hot water. Dip pretzel rods in melted chocolate and sprinkle with candy crumble. Place on parchment paper and let it cool in the refrigerator.

This was a team effort for me, my son and his cousin. I was the one in charge of covering the pretzel rods with chocolate and they were the ones in charge of sprinkling it with the candy crumble. I must say they really enjoyed seeing and tasting their finished work!

Patriotic Rice Krispies Treats

I did 2 versions (a star and a flag version) of the rice krispies treats and I’m sure you can think of a lot more! You just need a 10oz bag of marshmallows, 2 tbsp butter, 6 cups rice krispies, and sixlets (red, white and blue) from SweetWorks.

Instructions: Melt 2 tbsp butter on low heat, then add the marshmallows. Stir until consistent. Add in 6 cups of rice krispies and mix until well coated. Press the resulting mix into a pan coated with cooking spray. Let it sit for a few minutes until cool. Cut and decorate.

I used a star-shaped cookie cutter for the star rice krispies treats, and a regular knife for the flag treat. Then I let my son and his cousin place the sixlets on the treats, though I had to guide them in placing the sixlets on the flag.

  1. WOW!!!!! How cute and easy these look. Im not the best at holiday ideas but I don’t think I could go wrong with these and the kids could help me. You have given me hope that the day will be fun and creative

  2. I would use Sixlets for their bright colors & Niagara Chocolate Caramel Bars just because I love them. I might try to work in their Break-Aparts because I really like those, too, lol.

  3. I would like to use the Nerds filled bubblegum for decoration on cupcakes or cake. They would be a big hit for sure.

  4. If I had the Ovation® Milk Pumpkin Spice Break-A-Part, I’d use it to decorate my pumpkin cheesecake- it’s be so cute!

  5. I’d decorate with the solid milk chocolate red and blue balls because everyone loves chocolate and they’d fit right in with a 4th of July celebration.

  6. I would use the powder blue and white and the red and white candy crumble in a cookie recipe I have that uses crushed candy cane. It would be a great summer version of my kids favorite.

  9. The Autumn Mix Pearls would be perfect.My husband is a volunteer fire fighter,and these colors would be perfect.thanks so much for sharing.

  10. Nerds filled bubble gum woild FOR SURE be the perfect topping on any party treat, like an ice cream bubble gun pop! I want some of those for myself! Lol

    Thank you for the chance!

  11. I would love to use sixlets they were my favorite growing up! They would be great in patriotic colors on top of cupcakes!

  12. I would use the Powder Blue & White Candy Crumble and the Powder Pink & White Candy Crumble on my cupcakes in celebration of Independence Day. I pick those two candies because it is foolproof for decoration (Just sprinkle on top of cupcakes and voila).

  13. I would like to use Sweetworks’ Red, White and Blue Mix Stars Sweet Shapes on the 4th of July cake I’m baking for our family picnic.

  14. I would use Milk Chocolate Sports Car because I like cars and chocolate so that would
    make my holiday great.

  15. Head over to Sweetworks and tell me what candy you would like to use in your holiday decorating and why.

    i wanna make some chocolate cupcake with sixlets in me frosting..good enough?

  16. I’d love to use the Sixlets because they are my favorites and bring back memories of when I was a kid and bought them at the corner store!

  17. Pretzels and rice krispies! Yum!
    I would use the nerds to decorate because the colors are bright and cheery and the shape has a lot of fun textures. (okay, I would actually just eat them. I like nerds).

  18. Not very creative, but I would like to use the Red, White and Blue Mix Stars Sweet Shapes to decorate a cake. It’s simple but would look amazing!

  19. I would love to use Halloween Mix Sixlets® (2lb Bag). I bet they would look great in a jar and add a nice pop of color to the table!

  20. I’d use Sixlets, Pearls and Candy Crumble on cupcakes for the 4th of July. Why? The kids love candy and these are edible decorations.

  21. I would use the red, white and blue stars as table decoration for my 4th of July party by putting them in fancy glass jars.

  22. I would love to use the dark green and lime green sixlets to decorate my nephews teenage mutant ninja turtle bday cake. He would love it!

  23. It would be fun to decorate with the Foiled Solid Milk Balls in various colors for each holiday. They would be pretty in large clear vases or jars.

  24. I want to use gumballs because there is such a big variety to choose from and you could do so many things with them.

  25. I’d love to use the Ovation Mint Sticks. They are quite universal. They could be used whole as they are, broken in half or quartered to make other types of decorations, or even crumbled as a topping (or even snacked on in between). I think they’d be perfect!
