Pretzel Toffee
Cook time
Total time
A simple butter and sugar toffee candy over pretzels.
Recipe type: Candy
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups pretzel pieces
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  1. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter. Add sugar, and stir to dissolve.
  2. Continue cooking and stirring over medium high heat until it is the color of a brown paper bag, about 7-10 minutes. (The mixture may separate and look clumped or curdled, and this is fine. The color is a more important indicator than the texture.)
  3. Prepare a sheet pan (I recommend a quarter sheet pan) by lining with parchment paper or a silicone liner, or by generously buttering.
  4. Cover pan in a single layer of pretzels. Pour cooked candy onto pretzels as soon as it reaches the desired color.
  5. Immediately top with chocolate chips. Let chips melt for a few minutes, then use a knife to spread like frosting.
  6. Let candy cool by chilling in fridge for about an hour. Use a large knife to break into pieces.
  7. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
