Butterscotch Caramel Sea Salt Pretzels

Butterscotch Caramel Sea Salt Pretzels

The combination of crunchy pretzels, milk chocolate, butterscotch, toffee bits, caramel and a dash of sea salt takes your pretzels to the next flavor level.

The ingredient list is short and sweet.

After melting the milk chocolate and butterscotch chips together, pour over the pretzel balls and stir. Stir in the toffee pieces and sea salt.

Spread the melted chocolate pretzel layer into a pan and drizzle with melted caramel. Grab yourself some hand wipes because these babies are sticky!

Other ideas: I bought the pretzel balls from Walmart in the salted snack section (near the bagel chips, Bugles, etc.) but you could use any type of pretzels. The pretzel rods would be fun too. You could also add 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter to the milk chocolate and butterscotch mixture. Omit the caramel if you don’t want something too sticky.

For a spring pretzel treat, make pastel pretzel snack mix.

Sweet wishes,

  1. I don’t know, it looks pretty darn delicious just as it is. Being a lover of nuts however I’m wondering what chopped cashews or pistashios would taste like in this.
