Kwanzaa Celebration Sticks

Celebrate the colors of Kwanzaa with these sprinkle-coated pretzel sticks. Your kids can hand them out to friends during Kwanzaa, from December 26th to January 1st. Alternatively, you can create blue-and-white sticks for Hanukkah or red-and-green sticks for Christmas.


  • Red, green, and black (or chocolate) sprinkles
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 20 8-inch pretzel rods


Kwanzaa Celebration Sticks Step 1

1. On a piece of waxed paper, arrange 1 1/4-inch-wide stripes of red, black (or chocolate), and green sprinkles, as shown below. In a shallow microwave-safe bowl, microwave the white chocolate chips on high for 1 minute, stir, and microwave for 30 seconds more. Stir until smooth (it will be thick). Use a knife to spread the chocolate over half of a pretzel rod. Roll through the sprinkles until coated with stripes. Chill. To present the sticks, bundle them with ribbons. Makes 20.
