Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Serves: about 8-10 depending on size of chunks
2 sticks of butter
1 C. of light brown sugar
1 reg. bag of pretzels (you’ll use about 3/4 of the bag, crush them a little)
12 oz bag of chocolate chips, you can use semi-sweet, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and whatever strikes your fancy!
Salt (sea salt, table salt, kosher salt) optional
What to do:
Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper or tin foil treated with cooking spray, cover with pretzels.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and the brown sugar over med to med-high heat until the mixture reaches 305 degrees on a candy thermometer. It usually takes me around 20-25 minutes. The mixture should turn into a light brown/caramel color. Watch carefully because it changes pretty fast, take off the stove and pour it over the pretzels, slowly and evenly. You can then use a spatula to spread it out; you have to work quickly and gently. It hardens fast so even pouring is the best method. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top and can let the caramel melt the chips. Once the chips have melted use a silicone spatula or an offset spatula to evenly spread the chocolate over the top.
Sprinkle with salt (optional) and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.
