Ingredients

  • 4 cups miniature pretzels
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Recommended Equipment

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 200°F and cover a baking sheet with foil. Place a cooling rack over the pan, and spray the rack with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

  • In a medium heavy saucepan, melt the butter, sugar, water and salt over MED-LOW heat. Stir often with a wooden spoon.

  • Bring the mixture to a boil and turn the heat down to MED-LOW. Bring the mixture to 305°F, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

  • Working quickly, pour the pretzels into the toffee mixture and stir. Transfer the pretzels, a few at a time (with a toothpick or fork) to the prepared cooling rack/baking tray, laying them side-by-side without touching.

  • Bake at 200°F for 20-30 minutes to dry out the pretzels and to ensure they won’t be sticky. Transfer the pretzels to a cooling rack to completely cool.

  • Once the toffee pretzels have cooled. Allow the pretzels to sit uncovered, overnight, on the counter. Keep in an airtight jar or bowl.

  • The pretzels will stay fresh up to 3 weeks.

I made them for the folks at work…”AND… THE…CROWD… WENT…WILD!!!”
Bought special trays for the drip/dry part. They’re worth the expense. Also I bought Gluten Free Pretzels for a Celiac neighbor who adores them.Caramel Pretzels (Mini Butter Toffee Pretzels) Recipe - The Cookie Rookie® (19)

These were amazing and super easy! My husband said it was the best toffee he has ever had and I am no longer aloud to buy toffee. I think it is cute that the recipe says they will last three weeks, they didn’t last a day in my house LOLCaramel Pretzels (Mini Butter Toffee Pretzels) Recipe - The Cookie Rookie® (21)

Hi Rhonda, soak the pot in warm water; the caramel should dissolve!

How much is one serving? I’m trying to keep a food log and it doesn’t give quantity of a serving. Thank you

Hi Virginia, this recipe serves 8, so a serving is about 1/2 cup of pretzels.

Do you bake them on the cooling rack and then transfer them to another cooling rack?

You say to melt the butter on med-low, then bring to a boil and turn down to med-low again. But, when do you turn the heat to something else and then down again? Am I missing a step to turn the heat to bring it to a boil?

When you bring it to a boil, you can turn the heat up to high!

Sorry, if I can’t locate the recipe easily, I can’t make them!! Passing on this, although they look good. My time is worth more than chasing a page up and down looking for a recipe, to no avail.
