Dipped Caramel Pretzel Bites

I made these Caramel Pretzel Bites to take around to my friends and neighbors and they were a HUGE hit. They are so easy to make (especially if you have helpers and can make an assembly line) and oh. my. gosh. they are so delicious! They taste gourmet, yet they are so simple! Be careful. You cannot stop with just one of these delicious bites. We had some left over after taking them to neighbors and they were devoured within minutes. This has become my new favorite sweet and salty holiday snack… trust me, it will be yours too!

Two ways to make Dipped Caramel Pretzel Bites

These Caramel Pretzel Bites are delicious with our Homemade Christmas Caramels โ€” Christmas Caramel’s Recipe: HERE. You can also make them with store bought caramels, but you will need to soften them up a bit. To use a store-bought caramel (like Brach’s or Kraft), follow these directions:

Directions for Store Bought Caramels

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Unwrap each caramel and cut it in half.
  • Line a baking sheet with pretzel squares.
  • Place a caramel half on each square.
  • Bake for 5-6 minutes, long enough for the caramel to become soft.
  • Place another pretzel square on top of the caramel and press down gently until the caramel comes just to the edge.
  • Allow each “sandwich” to cool before dipping.

Ingredients

  • 1 batch caramels homemade or 200 store bought caramels see notes above
  • 24 ounces chocolate you can use milk chocolate candy bars or chocolate melts
  • 2 12 ounce bags pretzels (we used Snyder’s butter pretzels, the square ones)
  • 8 ounces white chocolate melts

Instructions

  • Prepare homemade caramel (it should be enough to fill an entire jelly-roll pan, the recipe provided above is the perfect amount). Allow caramel to cool and cut into small squares about the same size as the pretzels.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate (not including the white chocolate) at 50% microwave power in 30 second increments, until melted, stirring each time.
  • Place a caramel between 2 pretzels and gently press together.
  • Dip half of the pretzel “sandwich” into the melted chocolate, shake off excess, and place on to wax paper. Repeat until you run out of caramel and/or pretzels.
  • When all the pretzel bites are done and completely set (you may need to put them in the refrigerator), melt white chocolate (same as above) and drizzle over the top of the bites.
  • Allow white chocolate to set, then serve!

    With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I was relieved at how easy and fast this recipe came together! So easy, delicious, and festive! My kids barely left enough to give to the neighbors!

    Wow these are the easiest treats to make with only 4 ingredients! So excited to make this over the weekend! I know they will be a hit!

  3. Be sure you butter your pan that you make your caramel in, it doesn’t say to do this, but a small area of my pan didn’t get buttered and it stuck ๐Ÿ™‚ I think these will be really good, waiting to dip them tomorrow.

    These were so yummy!!! I would never have said I was a pretzel and caramel person but I sure am now!

  5. These were amazing! As usual, you hit the mark perfectly! The actual caramels were nothing short of heaven, probably the best I have tasted. Everyone that tasted these little squares LOVED them! They are my new Christmas addiction.

  6. These look like the perfect holiday treat! I love the combo of salty, sweet, caramel, and chocolate. YUM! Pinned. ๐Ÿ™‚
