Chocolate Toffee Pretzel Bark

As if you all need another addicting recipe, right? I mean, who can resist the sweet/salty combo? And to make matters worse, there's a good chance you already have all (or most) ingredients on hand! Not to mention it takes no time at all to whip up. I made 2 batches at once not realizing how much I would end up with! But I had no problem getting rid of it. This would make a nice addition to your Christmas plates this year as well, but let's not think about that just yet!
Chocolate Toffee Pretzel Bark
mama say what?!
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.
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. Put in the oven at 350 degrees for five minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. Pop back in the oven for a minute then spread chocolate evenly.
Spread the chocolate chips around with a spatula until mostly melted and sprinkle generously with salt.
Let cool on the counter top for a few minutes and then pop in the freezer for about an hour. When it comes out of the freezer, break it up into uneven chunks with your hands and serve.
*I stored it in the freezer because it softens up a little when left out. Follow TawnyAlexander on Twitter

  1. That stuff was addicting! I can't believe how few ingredients went into it. Maybe I'll try it?
