I am not a fan of a lot of traditional Thanksgiving desserts (anything with pumpkin), so I like to have something with chocolate present! This recipe was really yummy, but very bad for your teeth! But still, it was really good....
- ½ bag of mini pretzel twists
- 2 sticks of butter (1 cup total)
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 bag of chocolate chips (2 cups)
- Sea salt or table salt
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Then line a large jelly roll pan with aluminum foil and lay a single layer of pretzels down. I was pretty meticulous about this and made neat little rows (you can fit more on that way right?).
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and the brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Let it boil gently just until it starts to stick to the bottom and it forms a nice smooth caramel. You’ll want to let it bubble a little and get really thick.
- Remove from heat and pour evenly over the top of the pretzels (don’t worry if every single pretzel isn’t covered). Put in the oven at 350 degrees for five minutes.
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. You can let the caramel melt the chips, but I prefer to put it back in the oven for one minute.
- Spread the chocolate chips around with a spatula until mostly melted.
- Sprinkle generously with salt.
- Let cool on the counter top for a few minutes and then pop in the freezer for at least two to three hours.
- When it comes out of the freezer, break it up into uneven chunks with your hands and serve.
