Salted Caramel Pretzel Bites are the most addicting thing ever but it's worth it! ohsweetbasil.com

I have been sitting here forever trying to figure out a name for these things because they are kind of like those “turtle” chocolates people make except not because there are not nuts and the chocolate is on the bottom not a shell on top. Bites? But it’s a little more than a bite and truffles clearly wouldn’t work as they are nothing like a truffle. Snaps? I mean, they do snap when you bite them. And trust me, they are addicting little salted caramel pretzel snaps!

 

We love these! Salted caramel pretzel snaps ohsweetbasil.com

Our friend, Aaron gave us a try of a little pretzel caramel treat at his house one night, but I haven’t ever seen them at the store so I was stuck to make my own and I’m happy to say it’s the fastest recipe ever! I don’t even know if I should be calling it a recipe as there’s not really much to it. In fact, I was trying to hurry so I put two pieces of parchment out, one for me and one for our 8 year old and 4 year old. The 8 year old did the chocolate and caramel and the 4 year old placed pretzels and sprinkled salt. I chose to photograph their’s just to prove it could be done by a child.

The best treat ever! Salted caramel pretzel snaps ohsweetbasil.com

Candy making was a whole process at my house growing up. We made gobs and gobs of candies, turtles, peanut butter balls, coconut balls, chocolate pizza, and more! It was such a fun time and I loved helping it. It makes me a little sad to think about how I didn’t realize just what a special opportunity it was to be surrounded by family in a safe, loving home and to just be a carefree kid. I know that it’s like that for most kids, but I regret not taking more advantage of being a family. Now we all live far apart and holidays are often spent alone because it’s too far to travel to everyone. Such a bummer. But at least we can make our treats with our own families not and keep the tradition going.

These are an easy treat especially for the holidays, salted caramel pretzel snaps
Ingredients
  • 3 bars Milk Chocolate Almond Bark, melted (a 14 ounce package has bars in 2 ounces each so you would need 3 bars or 6 ounces of chocolate)
  • ½ Bag Mini pretzels
  • ½ bag Caramel squares, melted or more as needed. I also use a hunk of Peter's Caramel Brick from Orson Gygi
  • Sea salt
Instructions
  1. Lay out wax or parchment paper, using a spoon, drizzle a little chocolate on the paper and smooth it out a little with the back of the spoon like you are painting a circle. Drop three pretzels, slightly overlapping onto the chocolate and spoon a little melted caramel over all three. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and then drizzle a little more chocolate. Let set and store in Tupperware.
