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!

{Butterscotch Caramel Sea Salt Pretzels}

5 cups mini pretzel balls

8 ounces Hershey’s milk chocolate (can be a little more or a little less, depending on the size bars you use)

1 cup butterscotch chips

1 (8-ounce) package milk chocolate toffee bits

1 Tablespoon sea salt

1/3 package (approximately 20) caramels, unwrapped

1 teaspoon milk

Place pretzel balls in a large bowl. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt Hershey’s milk chocolate and butterscotch chips together until smooth. Pour melted chocolate mixture over pretzel balls and stir until coated. Add toffee bits and sea salt, stirring everything together. Line a large cooking sheet or tray with parchment paper or non-stick foil. Spread the mixture into the pan. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the caramels and milk. Drizzle the caramel over the pretzel mixture and cool completely. Break into pieces before serving.

Other ideas: I bought the pretzel balls from Wal-Mart in the salted snack section (near the bagel chips, Bugels, etc.) but you could use any type of pretzels. The pretzel rods would be fun too. If I have cashews on hand next time, I will decrease the pretzel balls by 1 cup and substitute cashews. 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.

What other ingredients would you add?

  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.

What's on your mind?
