Caramel Pretzel Sparklers

This fun salty/sweet treat is a cinch to put together with just four ingredients.  They can of course be adjusted and made for any holiday, but we especially enjoy the festive Independence Day look.


Caramel Pretzel Sparklers

  • 1 package rod pretzels
  • 1 package caramel apple wrap
  • 6 squares almond bark
  • festive sprinkles


1. Slice caramel sheets into 4 or 5 strips (a pizza cutter works well for this).


2. Wrap strips of caramel around pretzel rods.


3.  Melt almond bark according to package directions.  Spoon over caramel-wrapped pretzels.  Allow excess to drip off.
4.  Sprinkle with festive sugar decorations.


Fun to use as edible table decorations or fun party favors. Enjoy!

  1. What a neat twist on one of our favorite treats!! We will definitely have to try this! Thank you!

  2. I have dipped them in chocolate before but I love the caramel component:-)

  3. Amy, where have you been all my life??? I have made these for Christmas – my twist is to dip in caramel, then chocolate, then roll in toffee chips. Yes, one does send you into diabetic coma, but as soon as you wake up, you reach for another one. I *never* can get my caramel melted properly, so this would work great! I thank you in advance for the five pounds these will make me gain over Christmas. :>)

  4. These look great!!! I’m going to *try* to make these for the parade Saturday. Thanks for the great idea!! Yummy!

  5. You guys have caramel wrap precut to apple size?
    In Australia you can sometimes buy Toffee Apples (always red toffee and green apples please!) but otherwise you have to make them yourself, by boiling up the sugar water – a highly non-child friendly activity. Those caramel circles would not help in my house though… I’d be sure to eat them before they got anywhere near an apple!
    (Good thing too, because my kids eat all the apples before I could think to cook with them!)

  6. Oh, my! I am having this dream caramel and then dipped in chocolate and rolled in reeses. 😀 Yum!

  7. This looks great. I have never done it with the caramel. What a great idea. Blessings.

  8. Those are so fun..and with carmel? Yum! I make white chocolate covered rods at Christmas but never thought to do caramel or do it for the 4th. Great idea. 🙂

  9. Love it! Love it! And perfect snack for our family reunion this weekend. I put a link to you in my blog post today for all of my friend’s looking for good 4th ideas!

  10. Visiting from Jen’s party. 🙂 This looks like an easy and fun project that my 3 year old could help with. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  11. I love dipped pretzels! Using the caramel apple wraps is such a great idea. So much easier than dipping in melted caramel. Thanks!

  12. How cute–I’ll be trying these this weekend!

  13. What a fun and festive idea. So easy and sounds delicious. Thanks for the idea!


  14. LOVE these! I saw these in a magazine and thought they looked so easy and fun for kiddos! I decided to make some cupcakes instead; I dont know why. The kids would probably enjoy these more!

  15. The addition of caramel to dipped pretzels, looks like a winner. I saved this recipe, and also sent it to my best friend, who surely will be making them.

  16. I make something similiar that I call Heaven on A Stick, but I never would have thought to be all festive with them. I’ll have to see if I can find Caramel wrap–how handy!!

  17. How cute! I am going to make these for our 4th of July get together this weekend!

  18. Thanks for reminding me of these. I have grandchildren who love them. I will make a special edition for this weekend.

  19. Great pretzel idea. You get salty and sweet!! Love it. Thanks for linking up to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.

  20. What a delicious idea for the fourth!

  21. yum-o and oh, so cute

  22. Oooh! I’m loving these. What a great idea!

  23. I’ve dipped these in melted caramel and chocolate before, but never thought to use the wraps. Great idea!

  24. Not only do these look GREAT, but they sound yummy, too. We’ll have to try them. Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  25. I’m going to make those with my grand kiddos tonight! Thanks!
    Have a wonderful week end and a fabulous 4th!

  26. Those look delicious! I am going to have to give these a try.

  27. Oh, my husband will be pushing me to make these caramel pretzels. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  28. Yum!!! I have a son with a nut allergy, so I’m thinking it would be easy to substitute white chocolate for the almond bark. Thanks for the great idea!
