Gourmet Pretzel Rods

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

They're CRUNCHY and CHEWY and SWEET and SALTY and have a touch of CHOCOLATE... the ultimate snack! I get the peanuts and caramels in the bulk food section of the grocery store. Very easy and fun to make.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • In a microwave safe dish, combine caramels and water. Microwave for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring after each minute.
  • Dip a pretzel rod into melted caramel. Reserve about an inch at the end to use as a handle, and spread smooth with a spatula or the back of a spoon. Attach 12 chocolate pieces, then roll in chopped peanuts. Place on wax paper until set.

  • Note:

    If caramel becomes difficult to work with about halfway through dipping, you can add 1/2 teaspoon water, and microwave for another 30 seconds; but don't keep microwaving or the caramel gets ruined.
