Sweet and Salty Delight: The Delectable Recipe for Butter Toffee Pretzels

Indulgence meets simplicity in this delectable butter toffee pretzel recipe! Imagine the irresistible crunch of pretzels coated in a rich, buttery toffee layer, offering a harmonious blend of sweet and salty flavors. Whether you're looking to satisfy a sweet tooth craving or impress guests at your next gathering, this recipe strikes the perfect balance of texture and taste.



Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cook Time: 1 Hour


Ingredients:

  • 1 (16oz.) bag of mini pretzels

  • 1 cup of brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup of butter

  • 1/4 cup of light corn syrup

  • 1 tsp. of vanilla

  • 1/2 tsp. of baking soda

  • 1 bag of Heath toffee bits


How to Make It:

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.


Pour the entire bag of mini pretzels into a large bowl and set aside.


In a medium saucepan, add the brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter. Then, bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.



Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and baking soda. Your mixture should be a light caramel color with lots of bubbles. Don't panic if your mixture really sizzles and bubbles when you add in the vanilla. This is normal.


You'll want to act fast for this next step as the toffee will begin to thicken and harden very quickly as it cools. Pour the hot toffee mixture over the pretzels in the bowl and stir to coat. This should probably go unsaid, BUT... be careful not to let the hot toffee touch your skin...I learned from experience that it will burn! (LOL)



Pour half the bag of Heath bits over the pretzels and stir them in quickly to coat the pretzels.


Pour the pretzels out onto the baking sheet and spread them out. Act quickly! The toffee will harden fast, making it more difficult to evenly spread the pretzels out. It's okay if they're not perfectly spread out. As they bake, they will become easier to break apart.



Bake for 1 hour, tossing every 20 minutes or so.



Once the pretzels are baked, remove them from the oven and sprinkle the remaining Heath bits on top. Allow the pretzels to cool completely and then break them apart into clusters.


This is a great snack to bag and gift to friends and neighbors or serve on a dessert board if you want a sweet and salty treat. Enjoy!
