The contrasting sweet & salty tastes and creamy & crunchy textures make this easy dessert bar a crowd-pleaser! No matter how they like it, we've got them covered!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup crushed pretzels
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, melted

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Line a 7" x 11" baking pan with aluminum foil, letting the ends extend beyond the edges on two opposite sides. Coat foil with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine pretzels and 1/4 cup melted butter; mix well and press into bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes; set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and remaining 1/3 cup butter; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook 10 minutes, or until golden, stirring constantly. 
  4. Pour sweetened condensed milk mixture over crust and chill 30 minutes, or until firm. Smooth chocolate over top and chill at least 2 hours, until firm. 
  5. Lift foil from pan then remove foil and place on a flat cutting surface. Cut into small squares. Serve, or cover and keep chilled until ready to serve. 


You can also press miniature pretzels into the chocolate while it's still soft, so that each square will have a pretzel on it.

I made these for the 1st time in 2010 when I saw the recipe on the show. The crust was not firm and I had some trouble with it pulling up. I just made them again early 2012 -- I used 1 1/2 x crust recipe and a 9 x 13 pan- I crushed pretzels in food processor. I cooked filling less than suggested and poured it over the crust-- so even though the crust was not solid it did not pull up. I decided melting the chocolate was a waste of time, so I just sprinkled choc chips over all and then I used whole pretzels in rows on the top. I chilled overnight and it cut into squares w/ 1 pretzel on top per square. Everyone

.... at work LOVES these. Give them a try

I made this and must have cooked it too long as it turned out hard as a brick. I was very disappointed!

I liked the sound of this, tried it, but didn't have good results. Pretzel crumbs and butter did not make a firm foundation, and it was impossible to spread the caramel. What did I do wrong?

Ok me and my daughter just made these, ok we kind of made these. We messed up and put the chocolate chips right in with the SCmilk and butter and sugar. So we cooked it a lil longer steering till it pulled away from the pan smoothly. We then just dumped and spread it over the pretzel crust. I had some coarse sea salt and some snowflake sprinkles, so we put a nice amount of the sea salt and some cute sprinkles. Set out in garage for about 2 hours to chill. ALRIGHT THIS IS SO AMAZING... I have never been so glad I messed something up. It is about the consistency of a Wearthers Carmel, and taste alot like it also, rich and creamy then you get the crunch of the pretzel, and the sea salt just brings it all together. A- mazing!!!

@jrcapes I'm not Mr. Food but I have a really good recipe for Fruit Pizza. Take a sugar cookie tube of dough & flatten it the desired shape of "crust" you want. Depending on the size you may need 2 tubes of cookie dough. Then mix 16 oz cream cheese, 1 tsp vanilla, 2/3 cup sugar till blended well. Spread over the cookie dough. Then add your favorite fruits to the top. You can drizzle it with melted chocolate or use a jelly melted over a low heat & glaze the top of the pizza with that too. I hope this helps you.

I cant wait to make this, do people make something like this also with like ritz crackers or saltines?

good recipie

Where is the add it button? I need more help.
