One of the BEST things about this recipe? FOUR ingredients, no baking and just plain E A S Y !
1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, Melt chocolate and spread into a “rectangle shape.” 2. Press pretzels into the warm chocolate, it’s okay to let them overlap. 3. Pour melted caramels over the top of the pretzels. 4. Drizzle with more melted chocolate and sprinkle with sea salt.
Place the pan in the refrigerator for caramel and chocolate to set. Cut or break into pieces. Great for snacking, or would make a great gift this Christmas.
No bake treats like these are great at the holidays for a quick and easy hostess gift, or a nice filler on holiday trays among the other goodies!
