Chocolate Caramel Covered Pretzels

Valentine's Chocolate Caramel Covered Pretzels - one of our favorite treats! Pretzels dipped in a homemade caramel sauce, then in melted chocolate, drizzled with white chocolate and your choice of sprinkles.

I think it’s safe to say that the whole LUNA clan loves food. I think that love was instilled in us because we center so many of our get togethers around it. We usually make a menu and give assignments to each person a month before the event (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.) Fortunately, most of those that married into the family love food as well and have brought some tasty new recipes into the family. One of those recipes is from my cousin’s wife, Karen, for the most delicious Chocolate Caramel Covered Pretzels I have ever tasted. Yes, I have had them many times at events and boutiques and such, but hers are by-far the best I’ve had!! The caramel is so soft and the treats are so good that it’s hard to limit yourself to just one or two. 😉

Karen sent me the recipe she uses a long time ago but we finally gave it a try ourselves and made a Valentine’s version with them. We also made some plain and they were all AMAZING!!! I’m thinking I need to make some for our family Valentine’s dinner next week. 😉

If you are a fan of chocolate covered ANYTHING, then I think you should try these out. They are simply delicious!

Chocolate Caramel Covered Pretzels
 
Ingredients
  • 1 bag Pretzel rods
  • Candy Quick, Chocolate and White
  • Desired toppings and sprinkles
Homemade caramel Sauce:
  • 2 C. brown sugar
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 C. light corn syrup
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
Instructions
  1. Make caramel sauce by melting your butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar, milk and corn syrup. Boil over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring constantly. Around 240℉ (mixture will get a thicker, a little shiny and a tad darker). Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir.
  2. Dip each pretzel in caramel and set on wax paper. You can choose to repeat this step for extra gooey pretzels.
  3. While caramel is setting, melt entire tray of chocolate candy quick according to package directions.
  4. When caramel is just a tad sticky to the touch, carefully lift rod and dip in chocolate. Place on a clean sheet of wax paper to harden.
  5. Be sure to sprinkle your preferred toppings immediately, before chocolate has set so that it sticks to the pretzels.
  6. For a beautiful white drizzle, wait for chocolate to harden, then melt a few squares of the white candy quick and drizzle over the top.
