Ingredients

  • 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips (good quality chocolate), divided into pieces
  • 8 ounces (half of a regular 16-ounce bag) mini pretzel twists
  • 11 ounce bag caramel bits or homemade caramel
  • sea salt, for sprinkling
  • Chef notes

    The perfect combo of sweet and salty, this is the best treat to take to a potluck or party.

    Technique tip: Melt chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave at 15 second intervals then stir very well; this will ensure the chocolate chips wont burn.

    Preparation

    1.

    Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

    2.

    Melt 8 ounces of the chocolate chips gently in the microwave (on low heat, stirring every 15 seconds) until smooth.        

    3.

    Spread the chocolate evenly over the parchment. Immediately add the pretzel twists over the top (it's OK if they overlap!) and gently press them into the chocolate. 

    4.

    Add caramel bits to a microwave-safe bowl with 2 tablespoons water and melt, according to package instructions, on high for 2 minutes. Stir well and drizzle the melted caramel over the top of all of the pretzels.

    5.

    Melt remaining 4 ounces of chocolate and drizzle over the caramel. Sprinkle with sea salt.

    6.

    Refrigerate until hardened.

    7.

    Cut or tear into pieces, and enjoy!
