Caramel and Pretzel Bark


If your New Year's Resolution had something to do with eating healthier or losing weight, I apologize--you might just want to skip this post.  Oh wait, you already saw the picture though...I suppose this will be a test of your willpower.

I made so many delicious treats for Christmas and New Year's and all the parties involved, and there just hasn't been enough time to post them all.  Please bear with me, I'll try to limit the sweets so you're not incredibly tempted, but these recipes are just too good not to share!

My friend made this recipe for a bake sale and I was lucky enough to snag a plate.  When I was making my Melting Snowmen Cookie Balls, I had some melted Almond Bark left over.  I decided it was the perfect opportunity to throw together a small batch of this Caramel and Pretzel Bark.  The one great thing about this recipe is that you really don't need to follow the amounts--you can make as much (or as little) as you want!

Caramel and Pretzel Bark

You will need:
6 blocks Almond Bark
1/2 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup Pretzels, broken into bite-sized pieces
20 Soft Caramels (unwrapped)

1.  Place almond bark in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir and microwave another 30 seconds.  Repeat as needed until bark is melted and can be stirred smooth.

2.  Spread melted almond bark on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.

3.  Sprinkle pretzel pieces over almond bark.

4.  Place caramels in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir and microwave another 30 seconds.  Repeat as needed until caramels are melted and can be stirred smooth.

5.  Drizzle caramel over pretzel pieces on the almond bark.

6.  Melt chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl.  I follow the same method as step 1 (above).

7.  Drizzle melting chocolate over the almond bark.

8.  Allow the bark to completely set before breaking it into pieces.  Store in an air-tight container.
