Pretzel Toffee

12-15 Servings
25 min

I have made toffee plenty of times before using the graham crackers. But I am not a fan of graham crackers so I decided to try something else. Next I am going to try using Vanilla wafers. I must say I like this version a lot! The pretzels stay crunchy but you can't tell it is a pretzel crust unless you look at it. They add just the right amount of salt. So you get the sweet and salty together. It is so easy to make this and tastes so good. The hardest part is waiting for the chocolate to dry to be able to cut them into pieces. You lay your pretzels onto your parchment lined pan. Then you make the toffee part by mixing butter and vanilla and brown sugar. Let that boil for three minutes and pour over the pretzels. Bake and then sprinkle with your choice of chocolate and spread it out onto the warm toffee. You will know it is ready to spread when the chocolate is shiny. So easy and so good!

Here it is all broken up after it had cooled.

So yummy!!

Perfect for the holiday parties.

Lay the pretzels out on the pan.

Make sure the toffee mixture is bubbly.

After the chocolate chips melt spread them over the toffee mixture.

    Do the 2 cups chocolate chips go into the sauce pan with the brown sugar to boil, then top with additional (our favorite) chocolate after it comes out of the oven? Thank you

    I make this but my recipe calls for saltines. I put the chocolate chips on the toffee when it comes out of the oven then back in for 30 seconds to allow the chips to melt then spread. You can add your favorite toppings after this like toasted pecans or m&ms. It's so good, i'm not really a baker but this is easy and people love it.

      That’s what I’ve used in the past - saltines and a million different toppings - always a hit - but I absolutely love pretzels so I’m going to try this alternative!
