- 1 package (10 ounces) pretzel rods
- 1 package (14 ounces) caramels
- 1 tablespoon evaporated milk
- 1-1/4 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons butterscotch chips
- 2/3 cup milk chocolate toffee bits
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
- With a sharp knife, cut pretzel rods in half; set aside. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt caramels with milk. In a large shallow bowl, combine the chips, toffee bits and walnuts.
- Pour caramel mixture into a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Dip the cut end of each pretzel piece two-thirds of the way into 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 an airtight container. Yield: 4-1/2 dozen.
Reviews for Mother Lode Pretzels
"I made these and took them to a party. Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe. They are so easy to make."
"These are great! As previous people commented, you can make with various goodies. However, one word of caution. I made them for tailgate at the Penn State game today. Temp was only in the 30s. When we tried to bite into them, the caramel was hard enough to nearly break a tooth! It never dawned on me to consider that! We ate them when we came home and had them in the warm kitchen for a while. Then everyone loved them!"
"These were great, I made them as part of the favors for a bridal shower Everyone loved them. !"
"This recipe was amazing! I made these as a tailgating party dessert and people gobbled them up."
"This is a holiday staple in my home ever since I tried the recipe a few years back. I like to use mini-choc chips, cinnamon chips, and toffee bits and I usually omit the nuts and literally everyone raves about them, they are one of the staples of my holiday treat bags"
