Have you ever heard of salted caramel pretzel bark before?
I hadn't either, to be quite honest. It wasn't until one of our lovely readers (Jan L.) shared this mouthwatering treat with me that I realized what I had been missing.
I begged the recipe and a photo from her so that I could share it with you immediately, as I knew you'd be just as keen to try it out as I am.
Jan was so sweet to share, and even let me know of a few little difficulties she was having with the implementation of the recipe.
As soon as I got the recipe from her I did a little more research to determine what might be the source of the problems she was having.
The more I learn about this particular recipe, the more I'm dying to make it myself. I seriously can't wait!
Although Jan calls this candy "salted caramel pretzel bark," I'm going to include in the toffee section because it seems more like like a chocolate covered caramel pretzel toffee recipe to me.
Well, whatever name YOU choose to call it by, I know you're going to call it "Scrumptious!"
Step-by-step instructions for making this caramel pretzel toffee recipe:
See! It's not a difficult recipe at all, and the results are beyond yummy.
Jan was a bit worried because her bark didn't stay firm when she removed it from the freezer. I think the reason for that is that she probably cooked the butter and sugar a bit less so that it was more of a sticky caramel rather than a firm toffee.
Nothing wrong with that! In fact, some of the similar recipes I saw pretty much indicated that sticky was the correct finished result. :) I think I'll cook mine a little bit more to get that firmer consistency.
Now, promise me this. If you try this Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark recipe (and let's be serious, you know you want to), please do tell me what you think of it. I'd love to see your pictures, too!
