The only thing better than a chocolate covered pretzel is a chocolate covered pretzel wrapped in caramel! I dig the salty/sweet/crunchy combination, and they make an easy “no bake” homemade gift.
Here’s how we make this fun holiday treat.
Caramel-Wrapped, Chocolate-Covered Pretzels
Start with a package of pretzel rods and a package of caramel apple wraps.
With a pizza cutter, slice the caramel into 4-5 strips. Wrap each strip around a pretzel rod, squishing and stretching the caramel as you go.
Place each caramel-wrapped pretzel on a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper. The paper that separates the caramel wraps works perfectly for this. (Try to ignore the cinnamon rolls. Go ahead. Try. )
Melt vanilla or chocolate almond bark according to the package directions. Spoon over each pretzel rod, smoothing and turning as you go. Carefully shake off excess bark and immediately sprinkle with your choice of fun holiday sugars, candies, or nuts. Place back on wax paper until the almond bark hardens. Store in an airtight container.
Are you a fan of salty or sweet? Or both?
