Easy Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites Recipe – super easy candy idea for the holidays! Great gift for chocolate and caramel lovers!
CHOCOLATE CARAMEL PRETZEL BITES
Our craving for homemade candy is in full swing. My Hubby has been asking me for days to make caramel pretzels and they finally happened. All dressed in chocolate and festive holiday sprinkles! Yes, please! I will take a dozen, thank you so much!
While our kids were enjoying their Rudolph the Reindeer peanut butter cookies (find the recipe and video there), my Hubby and I were munching away on these pretzel bites. They are quite addicting! You have been warned!
HOW TO MAKE PRETZEL CANDY?
We dipped the bites in semi-sweet and milk chocolate. You can dip the whole pretzel bite or just half of it or make a combination of both. They are fun and festive thanks to the holiday theme sprinkles. They will look gorgeous on your holiday table or packed in mason jars and given away to friends and family.
We love Christmas candy, especially if it’s easy and involves caramel. Our goal with these pretzel bites was to use just enough caramel that it will melt into the pretzel holes and not go over it. Half of a caramel square was just perfect to achieve that!

EASY CHOCOLATE CARAMEL PRETZEL BITES RECIPE:
- 24 pretzels
- 12 in caramel squares unwrapped, cut half, I used Kraft
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate melted with 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- Christmas sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Layer all pretzels on the sheet.
- Place half of caramel squares on each pretzel.
Bake in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes. The caramel will be melty but not completely filing the holes of pretzels. It will spread as it cools. Cool pretzels completely before dipping in chocolate.
- When cool, dip pretzels in chocolate (cover whole pretzels or dip halves). Tap against the bowl with chocolate to help excess drip off back to the bowl.
- Place back on the sheet. Sprinkle with funfetti. Let cool completely.
- Store in air tight container.
Please note, if your oven runs hotter, bake the pretzels for 4 to 5 minutes. The caramel is just suppose to be heated up to soften.
