This is a long holiday weekend and sometimes we tend to forget kids are involved as well. Not all of us have our own kids but we have family and friends who do. So check out this great little e-book of food and snacks for the younger generation. It’s got easy and kid-friendly recipes that even the big kids will love!

Pretzel Sparklers

• Long rod pretzels • White chocolate, melted • Sprinkles (red, white and blue) or star cake decorations
