Tips and tricks:

  • Use any size or style of pretzel you want, big, small, twisted, or straight. I personally really like to use mini pretzels. I find that they give me the perfect salty/sweet ratio.
  • Save yourself the measuring and just use one regular-sized bag of chocolate chips. It’s the ideal amount for this recipe.
  • This candy will keep for five days at room temperature. Be sure to store it in an airtight container to maintain freshness.
  • I like to give out small bags or boxes of pretzel toffee as gifts for teachers during the holiday season. Pick up some holiday themed containers, ribbon or twine, and gift tags at your favourite local dollar store and put the packages together.

Additional toppings:

  • Add nuts for even more salty crunch. Spread peanuts or whole pecans over the bark before you put it in the oven and the nuts will get nice and toasty. Alternatively, you can chop the nuts and add them on top of the melted chocolate layer. They will stick nicely once the chocolate has hardened.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and/or extra toffee bits.
  • You could also use colored sugar or sprinkles to coordinate with the season.
  • For a different look and flavour, try white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even a mix.
