Pretzel Toffee

Simple, quick, and delicious pretzel toffee recipe. This treat is perfect to enjoy and to gift during the holiday season. Just a few ingredients and you’re set!

If you love regular toffee, you’ll love this pretzel version. And if you love candy, you’ll also love our Christmas crack or our Homemade Turtle Candy.

Pretzel + Toffee is the Best Combo

We love to make treats, and especially candy around the holidays. One new treat we recently tried was Pretzel Toffee. We made it a few weeks ago and we did a white chocolate and a regular chocolate version. Both were hits with the whole family.

Not only is this great to serve at parties, or to make “just because” but we love to gift it to others too. It can easily be packaged in containers and wrapped with a pretty bow for friends, neighbors, teachers and more. And to be honest – it’s always a hit!

How to make Pretzel Toffee

This recipe is easier to make than you think!

Preheat oven to 350. Add parchment paper to a cookie sheet. Spread pretzels in a single layer over the parchment paper and set aside.

Melt butter and brown sugar in a pot. Cook on medium heat for 7-8 minutes or until a tan-ish brown color.

Pour toffee mixture over pretzels making sure to cover all the pretzels. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Take out and top with 2 cups of your favorite chocolate chips (we did half and half and used 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1 cup milk chocolate chips). Let chips melt for a few minutes and spread with spatula to cover toffee layer. Sprinkle with any desired toppings.

Let cool at room temp or by refrigerating until hardened. Break into pieces and store in air tight container in the fridge

Let’s talk pretzels…

  • We used pretzel twists, but you could easily use the sticks
  • You do not need to break them before putting them on the sheet, but you can if you want to.
  •  You can add more pretzels, or less, depending on your preference

What to sprinkle of top? We sprinkled toffee bits on top, but you could use your favorite toppings such as:

  • Sprinkles
  • Chopped nuts
  • Crushed graham crackers
  • Sea salt
  • Toasted coconut

How to store: When storing use an airtight container and layer the toffee with wax or parchment paper in between. Store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

  1. For the pretzel toffee recipe – is 1 cup of pretzels enough to cover the cookie sheet? seems like very little crunch with only 1 cup. thanks.

    1. Yes, 1 cup. You don’t have to spread it to cover the entire pan. Just pour them on & spread them out a little & pour over them. Hope that helps! It is super yummy!

  2. 5 stars
    I made some of this to put in jars for gifts & had to keep some for my family, because they kept eating it! This was so easy to make & I love that it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients! Very yummy!

  3. 5 stars
