Quick Candy Recipes

Salted Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Bark


  • 1 cup light brown sugar

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter

  • 1 regular-sized bag of pretzels (approximately 3/4 of the bag)

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag of chocolate chips

  • Coarse sea salt, to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the pretzels evenly on the pan.

2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Once melted and starting to bubble, add the brown sugar. Stir occasionally and let the butter and sugar meld together until it turns into a smooth and brown caramel, about 3 minutes. Be careful not to let it boil, as this will result in a sticky, unusable mixture.

3. Carefully pour the caramel mixture over the pretzels, ensuring an even coating. Use a spatula to spread the caramel quickly and gently, as it hardens fast. Aim for an even layer across the pretzels.

4. Bake the sheet in the preheated oven for 5 minutes.

5. Remove the sheet from the oven and sprinkle the entire bag of chocolate chips evenly over the caramel-coated pretzels. Return the sheet to the oven for about 45 seconds to allow the chocolate chips to soften.

6. Once softened, remove the sheet from the oven and use a silicone spatula to evenly spread the melted chocolate over the top of the pretzels.

7. Sprinkle the melted chocolate with sea salt to taste, adding a savory contrast to the sweet caramel and chocolate flavors.

8. Refrigerate the pretzel bark for a minimum of 1 hour to allow it to set completely.

9. Once set, break the bark into pieces and serve. Enjoy the delicious combination of sweet caramel, rich chocolate, and crunchy pretzels with a hint of sea salt for an irresistible treat!
