Ingredients

  • 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips , good quality chocolate divided into pieces (I like ghiardelli best for melting)
  • 8 ounces mini pretzel twists , half of a regular 16-ounce bag
  • 11 ounce bags Kraft Caramel Bits , or homemade caramel
  • sea salt for sprinkling

Instructions

  • Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Melt 8 ounces of the chocolate chips gently in the microwave (on low heat, stirring every 15 seconds) until smooth. 
  • Spread the chocolate evenly over the parchment. Immediately add the pretzel twists over the top (it's ok if they overlap!) and gently press them into the chocolate. 
  • Add caramel bits to a microwave safe bowl with 2 tablespoons water and melt according to package instructions (on high for 2 minutes). Stir well and drizzle the melted caramel over the top of all of the pretzels.
  • Melt remaining 4 ounces of chocolate and drizzle over the caramel. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Refrigerate until hardened.
  • Cut or tear into pieces, Enjoy!
