If you follow me on Facebook you know I promised a recipe for these Dark Chocolate Toffee Crunch Pretzels this weekend. Here they are!
Do you go crazy baking up treats and making candies for Christmas? I usually don’t for a couple of reasons. The first being that I don’t want to eat them all. The second being everyone I know makes a ton of treats so they are readily available anywhere I go. Lastly making all of those treats is a lot of work and I am just too lazy.
Although I don’t spend hours and hours making Christmas goodies, it doesn’t feel like the holidays without doing at least a little bit of baking. Ok…you can’t even call these pretzels baking. I literally just melted chocolate. BUT that’s not the point. The point is these are easy, delicious, and you can whip them up in no time. They are perfect to bring to a gathering to share or keep them around to snack on for yourself.
These little bits of Heath toffee are what make these pretzels so delicious. Toffee just adds a sweet and salty little crunch to the pretzels.
I also use real dark chocolate instead of almond bark.
Only 10 days left until Christmas! I am sure you, like me, have lots to do. Turn off that oven and make these pretzels!
- 1 - 10 oz bag 60% dark chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 - bag gf pretzels (I had a 14 oz. bag and was able to coat most of it with this amount of chocolate)
- ½ bag Heath Bits O' Brickle Toffee Bits (these are the toffee pieces without any chocolate coating)
- Set up a double boiler to melt your chocolate.
- To do this, fill a pot with 2-3 inches of water and bring to a gentle boil, then reduce to simmer.
- Set a bowl on top of the pot. The bottom of the bowl should not touch your water.
- Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to the bowl. Stir until completely melted.
- Be sure to use an oven mitt if needed because the bowl can become hot.
- When the chocolate in melted remove from heat.
- Add a handful of pretzels to the melted chocolate and toss to coat.
- Use a fork to pull out each pretzel and lay on sheets of wax paper to dry.
- While the chocolate is wet, sprinkle toffee bits on top of each pretzel.
- Repeat these steps until you have used all of your chocolate.
- Let pretzels stand on wax paper until chocolate has hardened and cooled completely.
