Canada Day is right around the corner and here at AlessiaAdora, we are so excited to start celebrating. It’s a great time to decorate the backyard, bake delicious treats, and gather with your loved ones. It’s even better when we get to do it with the little ones in our lives. Kids love to join in on the patriotic fun. To help you get the kids involved in Canada Day festivities, we’re going to share with you a kid-friendly craft, recipe, and history lesson.
CANADA DAY PRETZELS

Now that you have all of your ingredients and supplies, let’s get to baking.
Line your cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.
Place your chocolate in the microwave for thirty-second intervals, stir in between until the chocolate is fully melted.
Once the chocolate is melted, slowly stir in one teaspoon at a time of olive oil into the chocolate until the mixture flows off of your spoon.
Begin to dip your pretzels one at a time into the chocolate. Be sure to allow excess chocolate to drip off before placing the pretzels on your cookie sheet.
After every five pretzels placed on the cookie sheet, coat them in your red and white sprinkles.
