Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark


This was unbelievably good! So easy to make...and might I add a great gift to give for the holidays coming up!

If you would like to partake in this yummy goodness too, check out the recipe below!

  • ½  bag of mini pretzel twists
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips
  • Sea salt or table salt
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Then line a large jelly roll pan with aluminum foil and lay a single layer of pretzels down. 
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and the brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Let it boil gently just until it starts to stick to the bottom and it forms a nice smooth caramel. You’ll want to let it bubble a little and get really thick.
  • Remove from heat and pour evenly over the top of the pretzels (don’t worry if every single pretzel isn’t covered). Put in the oven at 350 degrees for five minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. You can let the caramel melt the chips, but I prefer to put it back in the oven for one minute.
  • Spread the chocolate chips around with a spatula until mostly melted.
  • Sprinkle generously with salt. If you use sea salt smash it a bit to make the salt smaller and sprinkle just a LITTLE bit or else your bark will be TOO salty! YUCK!
  • Let cool on the counter top for a few minutes and then pop in the freezer for at least two to three hours.
  • When it comes out of the freezer, break it up into uneven chunks with your hands and serve.
Quick tip: I found it tastes best when right out of the freezer. It will start to melt after sitting on the counter top for more than a few minutes.
