Is there any combination better than salty and sweet? If you’re the type that can’t choose between the appetizers and the sweets table at a gathering, you’re going to want to check out these delicious salted chocolate and caramel pretzel bars from Tastes Better From Scratch. They will quickly become your go-to salty-sweet indulgence.
They’re made from just four simple ingredients, and you don’t need any complicated equipment to pull them off. All you have to do is melt the chocolate, spread it evenly over parchment paper and add pretzel bits over the top. Then, melt caramel bits in the microwave and drizzle that on top of the pretzels. Finally, sprinkle the whole thing with sea salt and refrigerate. When the snack has hardened, cut into bite-sized pieces and enjoy!
This easy-to-make recipe would be great for any parties you have coming up, but it could also be the ideal way to simply treat yourself.
