Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Party Poppers

IMG_4004

My mom and I went dessert crazy on Christmas Eve. We spent almost two hours at the store making sure we had all of our ingredients, and spent twelve hours baking. There were some things we put off until the morning, but managed to do most of it.

My mom sent my brother a box of these chocolate caramel pretzels and I wanted to make them after seeing a photo because they looked so good! Plus, they were so easy and quick. You can make them for any occasion and decorate them to fit. I will probably make these for the Super Bowl party!

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

On a piece of parchment paper, lay the caramels on top of the pretzels.

Bake for about fifteen minutes. The caramel should be soft enough to press down into the pretzel. Do not overcook.

Drizzle chocolate over the top, or dunk them into the chocolate! I added sprinkles for decorations.

These candies were incredibly scrumptious. They reminded me of the mini snickers.

If you have gluten free guest or you are gluten free, use the gluten free pretzels. They’re actually better tasting than regular pretzels.

    These look yummy. My mom made something very similar this year. I like how you added the decoration pearls. Very cute!
    I really wish we had made the jelly thumbprint cookies. I love those, but we didn’t make it that far this year :/

    This looks so amazing!! I can’t wait to try out this recipe! I went to a holiday party recently and they used rolos which also worked really well!

    Oh my goodness these look SO good! I love the decorations you used. I think I might take your idea of making them for a Super Bowl party! Or I might make them for New Years on Wednesday. 🙂

    It’s truly a blessing that your mother and you have that kind of connection that you can bond over baking. Like mother like daughter, they say!
