Although this is truly a sweet treat, you could amp up the nutrition by opting for whole grain pretzels. I love those by Snyder :)

Step 1:

First, lay out all the mini pretzels on your baking mat.


Step 2:

Combine sea salt, sugar, and water in a saucepan. Use just enough water to make the sugar and salt mixture the consistency of wet sand. Add butter and heat, stirring frequently.


Step 3:

At some point the mixture should turn into a golden brown or amber color with a smooth consistency (very few bits of grainy sugar chunks visible). At this point, remove from heat and drizzle with a spoon over your pretzels.


Step 4:

Once you have the hang of the recipe, you can add different things to change the flavors. This batch had vanilla added instead of water (side effect: makes it harder to tell when it caramelizes) and some warm, melted chunky peanut butter stirred in at the end to make it more like a peanut brittle.


Step 5:

You can also use the toffee coating on its own to make a giant toffee bar or to coat other snacks.

Silicon baking trays/molds can really help here, and make stunning shapes. Snowflake toffee bars look really impressive!

If anyone is interested, I could post some of my other holiday recipes too. Around Halloween I make a great pumpkin chili.
