Salty and sweet and drizzled with chocolate, these Crunchy Caramel-Covered Pretzels are sheer perfection.
Rather than dwell on the fact that I have been silent here for awhile, I’m instead going to focus on these amazing Crunchy Caramel-Covered Pretzels.
Yes, you read that right. Crunchy. Caramel-Covered. Pretzels.
I assure you that the moment you taste just a single pretzel, you will forgive my absence and thank me for bringing this divine snack into your life. Then, you will eat every last sweet, salty morsel.
To prepare this snack of sheer perfection, start with standard pretzel twists to satiate the craving for saltiness. Then, cover the pretzels with gooey caramel sauce for the sweetness you desire. My favorite aspect of the caramel, aside from its obvious identity as sticky, sweet caramel, is the fact that it is made without corn syrup.
The true magic begins in the oven, where the caramel coating begins to bubble around each pretzel. Like those in gently simmering water, the bubbles break the surface of each salted pretzel, enveloping the edges with tiny pockets of caramel. Upon cooling, the capsules of caramel create layers of crispy, crunchy coating.
If, somehow, that doesn’t sound like enough for you, add a drizzle of chocolate atop these pretzels to really send them over the edge.
Unless your self-control is as strong as sea snail teeth (nature’s strongest material, if you didn’t know), you’ll find it impossible to eat just one… or ten. Thankfully, these crunchy morsels often stick together in glorious clumps, so you can continue crunching with minimal effort.
If you’ve been searching for the treat to keep you company in these frosty winter months filled with family game playing, football watching, and fireside snuggling, you have now found it in these Crunchy Caramel-Covered Pretzels.
