Okay, it's official, I am addicted to baking. I seriously cannot stop baking things. I spent this weekend baking Nutella cups, chocolate peppermint Andes cookies, brownies and this delicious pretzel caramel bark. This bark is great and tasty, a perfect treat to bring to any holiday party.
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
sea salt to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan or a 9x13-inch brownie pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Lay a flat layer of pretzels out on the foil.
2. Melt the sugar and butter until a boil is reached. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until mixture is thickened and sugar is completely dissolved. Pour this mixture over the pretzels and spread to coat evenly. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the caramel becomes bubbly.
3. After removing the pan from the oven, let it sit for 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips, let them soften and melt and then spread and/or swirl them into an even layer, at this point you could sprinkle sea salt on top or anything else for that matter ie nuts, cracker crumbs, Oreo pieces.
