These chocolate caramel pretzel bars are soooo good. And you only need 4 ingredients — so they’re really easy to make! The sweet chocolate and caramel goes so perfectly with the salty crunch of the pretzels. Yum!
Have you heard of Christmas crack? It’s a super popular recipe that tends to fly around Facebook at Christmas time. And it’s pretty much exactly what we’ve made here, except I used pretzels instead. And it tastes SO GOOD. I made the original recipe a few years ago for Valentine’s Day using saltine crackers and it was amazing. I’ve also seen it made with Ritz crackers.
Any time you mix together butter and sugar, you really can’t go wrong. I’m not sure if we can officially call the mixture caramel, but whatever it is it’s DELICIOUS! You simmer it for a few minutes into this golden, bubbly caramel (caramel can’t be this easy??), then you drizzle it over top of your pretzels. So. Good.
