Chocolate Covered Caramel Pretzel Bites
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Snacks
  • Small pretzel twists (you’ll use less than ⅓ of a bag
  • Caramels (again, you’ll have lots left over)
  • 1 bag (or 2 cups) MILK Chocolate chips
  1. Place wax paper on a large cookie sheet and lay out 36 pretzels.
  2. Unwrap 18 caramels and cut each one in half.
  3. Top each pretzel with a caramel half and place in a 250 degree oven for 5 minutes or so, until caramel is soft to the touch.
  4. Remove from oven and top each pretzel with another pretzel, GENTLY squeezing in the middle of each pretzel to sandwich the caramel. If you break a pretzel, don’t worry, just grab a new one and be a little more gentle.
  5. Melt your chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until just melted. (I keep a handful of chips out while I melt the rest, then stir them in at the end – this helps ensure the chocolate won’t go grey when it dries).
  6. Grab a pretzel sandwich and dunk it completely in the chocolate, then hold it between two fingers and shake to remove excess chocolate.
  7. Place on another cookie sheet covered in wax paper. Use your finger to gently swirl the chocolate on top of the pretzel bite to make sure it looks pretty and no pretzel is peeking through.
  8. Repeat with remaining pretzels and allow to set up completely at room temperature.
