The combination of the salty crunch of the pretzels and pecans with the soft caramel and creamy milk chocolate is the perfect holiday bite!


Pretzels 24
Caramels 24 , unwrapped
Pecans 24
Milk chocolate morsels 8 Ounce , melt ((any chocolate can be used))


Getting Ready

Preheat oven to 325˚F. 


On a baking sheet place pretzels in a single layer and top each one with individual caramels.

Place the sheet into a preheated oven for 4-5 minutes or until the caramels begin to melt. 

Once caramels have slightly melted, take the sheet out of the oven and firmly press the pecans into the melted caramel. Cool for 5 minutes in the fridge to firm up the caramel. 

Use a double boiling system to melt the chocolate by placing a sauce pan with one inch of water at the bottom over low heat, to allow for water to simmer. Place a heat proof bowl over the sauce pan and add in the chocolate chips to the bowl. Continuously stir until chocolate has melted. 

Dip the bottom of the pretzels into the melted chocolate and place onto a parchment paper to cool. (Speed up the firming process by placing into the refrigerator.) Serve and enjoy!
