Favorite Dipped Pretzel Rods Recipe

Coated in gooey caramel, then covered with chocolate and peanut butter chips, these decadent dipped pretzels are a delicious way to celebrate. For added variety, make some using butterscotch chips in place of the peanut butter chips.—Connie Banner, Castlewood, Virginia.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 55 min. + standing YIELD:30 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (14 ounces) caramels
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons water
  • 1-1/3 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package (10 ounces) peanut butter chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 package (12 ounces) pretzel rods

Directions

  • 1. In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt caramels with water. In a large shallow bowl, combine chips and pecans.
  • 2. Pour caramel mixture into a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Dip each pretzel about one-third of the way into the caramel mixture (reheat in microwave if mixture becomes too thick for dipping). Allow excess caramel to drip off, then roll pretzels in the chip mixture. Place on waxed paper until set. Store in airtight containers. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
