I feel like I’ve been gone from the blog forever.

Part of me felt a bit lame taking a break when #4 came along.

I know I would not judge anyone else for doing the same.

Why are we always so hard on ourselves?

Things are great, by the way.

The other thing I feel you missed was our Season of Star Wars.

The new movie that came out last year only served to strengthen our family’s love of all things Star Wars.

With Christmas and both boys’ birthdays occurring shortly after, we’ve been bombarded with lightsabers and Millennium Falcon toys.

I actually made these Lightsaber Pretzels for one of the boys birthdays back at the beginning of the year.

I wanted to save them to share on May the Fourth, and then almost completely forgot!

Luckily, they’re easy enough that you still have plenty of time to plan for this simple treat!

I have to tell you that the inspiration for these Lightsaber Pretzels came from an unwanted unexpected Christmas present.

My kids have sadly learned how to add items to their Amazon wish lists and decided to add every color of sugar sprinkle (we later discovered he thought they were different colors of Pop Rocks).

One of the grandparents then thought that was a brilliant idea for an inexpensive present that they obviously wanted (it was on their wish list after all).

Fast forward 1 month to the first birthday and I am busily trying to come up with fun and simple Star Wars ideas.

I knew I wanted to make Lightsaber Pretzels.

I initially thought I was going to color the almond bark lightsaber colors and just dip them.

Then I spied the sprinkles in the cupboard in the same place they had been since Christmas.

In all the right lightsaber colors I wanted!

Sprinkles add the right amount of sparkle to a sword.

Now, I used the small simple pretzel sticks and they were perfect for a little finger food snack, but these would be awesome on the big pretzel rods.

I also used the more coarse of the sugar sprinkles, but there are finer that would also work.

Lightsabers also come in other colors, but I wanted to stick to the basics (Darth Vader, Luke, Yoda).
