  • Frost with your favorite frosting and top with red white & blue sprinkles.

Mini Ice Cream Cones

  • Melt 2 blocks of almond bark in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir and continue heating in 15 second increments until almost all the chocolate is melted. Stir until completely melted.
  • Dip open edge of the cone in melted chocolate.

  • Dip one edge of cookie in chocolate . You may need to dip twice to completely cover the cookie.
  • Immediately add sprinkles.
  • Melt colored candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Transfer to squeeze bottles and drizzle on dipped cookies after the white chocolate has set.

Pretzel Bites

  • Add peanut butter to one pretzel square by filling a plastic ziptop bag with peanut butter, snipping off a corner and squeezing peanut butter through the opening.
  • Add a few mini chocolate chips if using.
  • Top with another pretzel square, pressing together gently.
  • Melt 2 blocks of almond bark in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir and continue heating in 15 second increments until almost all chocolate is melted. Stir until completely melted.
  • Dip edge of the pretzel in melted chocolate.
  • Immediately add sprinkles.

To Create the Board:

  • Start with a large board - using one with raised edges will help keep everything contained.
  • Begin by placing the largest items (like the Oreo Truffles, Cupcakes, Mini Ice Cream Cones and Dipped Oreos).
  • Then add next largest items like the licorice and larger candy pieces & larger berries.
  • Now add the medium sized items.
  • Fill in the holes with smallest items like M&M’s and yogurt raisins.
