Salted Chocolate and Caramel Pretzel Bars

These simple four ingredient no-bake bars are the perfect mix of sweet and salty, and are always an instant favorite!.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • 12 ounce package semi-sweet chocolate chips , good quality chocolate divided into pieces (I like ghirardelli best for melting)
  • 8 ounces mini pretzel twists , half of a regular 16-ounce bag
  • 11 ounce bags Kraft Caramel Bits, or homemade caramel
  • Sea salt for sprinkling

Here is what you’ll do:

  1. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Melt 8 ounces of the chocolate chips in the microwave on low heat, stirring every 15 seconds, until smooth. 
  3. Spread the chocolate evenly over the parchment. Immediately add the pretzels  over the top and gently press them into the chocolate. 
  4. Add caramel bits to a microwave safe bowl with 2 tablespoons of water and melt according to package instructions (on high for 2 minutes). Stir well and drizzle the melted caramel over the top of all of the pretzels.
  5. Melt remaining 4 ounces of chocolate and drizzle over the caramel. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  6. Refrigerate until hardened.
  7. Cut or break into pieces, Enjoy!
