Chocolate & Caramel Covered Pretzels

  • 2-3 Bags Pretzel Logs

  • White & 5 lbs. Milk Chocolate Buttons
    (These will melt easily in the microwave-find at Winco in the Bulk section)

    Homemade Caramel:

  • 2 C brown sugar

  • 1 C corn syrup

  • 2 cubes butter

  • 1 C sweetened condensed milk

Stir constantly on high. Cook to a firm ball, then remove from heat and add 1 tsp. vanilla. Cool until caramel is almost set. Hold a large spoon of caramel and twist pretzel logs in caramel to coat all but bottom two inches. Place logs on chilled & sprayed cookie sheet. Place in freezer until hard.

Melt 1 c. chocolate buttons in microwave for 1 min. Stir, then microwave for 30 sec. at a time until melted smooth. Stir well after each 30 secs. Dip caramel covered pretzels in chocolate. Let harden.

Melt white chocolate buttons and drizzle fine diagonal lines over pretzels. You can also sprinkle grated nuts, coconut, or sprinkles on the end if desired.

* Makes about 50- 7" logs or 100 -4" logs.
