This is a super easy recipe to make when you’re in the mood for a little chocolate with a dash of salt, the texture and crunch of a pretzel and chewy caramel. This is a snack you can make a few days ahead or have the kids help. It’s a fact when children help with preparing meals they tend to eat healthier than children that do not.
I picked up for my grandson his own child safe vegetable peeler and heat proof spatula So give this quick easy recipe a try and get the kids involved.
1 bag pretzels any size from mini to medium size. The very large and thick pretzels wont work.
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 12oz bag chocolate chips
Line a sheet pan with foil and add pretzels.
Melt two sticks of butter in saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add brown sugar and stir together. Boil and keep stirring until it gets darker amber color or 220 degrees.
Pour caramel sauce over pretzels. Use your rubber spatula to spread sauce evenly around.
Next using a small microwave safe bowl or using a double boiler melt chocolate chips.
If you are going to use the double boiler method to temper the chocolate, I have a link on how to temper.

Once melted pour over the caramel and using rubber spatula make sure to spread chocolate evenly.
Sprinkle liberally with sea salt. Place in fridge to cool completely.
Once Set break into good size pieces.
