Salted Chocolate Toffee Pretzel Bark

This holiday treat will be gone in minutes. It is one of those ever-so-addicting snacks that has you coming back for more. It is sweet, salty, and crunchy.

Here are some comments from people that have tried this, aka, my husband.
"Delicious, Jack"- he has been watching way too much Duck Dynasty.
"Really good."
"It's a holiday hit."
I may not go to him again for his comments on food. Regardless of his unappetizing comments, he really did love this salted chocolate toffee pretzel bark.

This was really easy to make and tastes more impressive than it looks!

8 oz. of Mini Pretzels, broken into smaller pieces, about 1/2 of a 1 lb. bag
1 cup of Butter
1 cup of Light Brown Sugar, packed
2 cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Sea Salt

First, pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Next, line an 11x17 in. pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place the pretzels onto of the paper, to cover the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

Now, heat a medium saucepan over medium heat with the butter and brown sugar in it. When the mixture starts to gently bubble, let it cook for 3 minutes without stirring. Remove from heat and pour over the pretzels, try to cover them all.

Next, bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Let them melt for 2-3 minutes, then spread them gently with a spatula or spoon. Lightly sprinkle with sea salt.

Let the bark cool and room temperature and then place in the refrigerator if the chocolate needs to harden more. Break the bark into pieces and store in an airtight container.


Happy Cooking,
