Instructions

  1. Line a large sheet or pan with parchment paper.
CARAMEL
  1. Combine butter, white & brown sugar, corn syrup, salt & sweetened condensed milk in a large microwave safe bowl (the mixture will bubble up so make sure there is lots of room in the bowl).
  2. Microwave on high for 6 minutes, stirring every 90 seconds.
NOTE: THIS MIXTURE GETS VERY HOT. ENSURE THERE ARE NO CHILDREN UNDERFOOT WHEN YOU MAKE THIS.
  1. Pour 2 cups caramel mixture into a tall glass measuring cup or mug. Dip each pretzel rod 2/3 of the way to cover in caramel. Place on parchment paper to cool.
  2. Once the caramel is hardened, melt the chocolate on 40% power for 45 seconds. Stir and continue microwaving at 20-second intervals until just melted. Stir until smooth.
  3. Dip the caramel-coated pretzels into the melted chocolate and place on parchment paper to cool.
  4. Melt the remaining chocolate in a small Ziploc bag and snip the corner off. Drizzle over chocolate.
  5. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.

Recipe Notes

Note: If the caramel starts to thicken or harden you can microwave for 20 seconds or until softened again.
