Caramel Pretzel Bars - The Perfect Gift Treat!


I found this recipe last year, a delicious combination of salty meets sweet, from one my favorite blogs: Week of Menus. Joanne (of Week of Menus) seriously comes up w/ some of the best recipes I've ever tried and this is fer sure on the top of my list. It's a perfect "Gifting Treat" and since l first happened upon it little over a year ago, I have made at least 12 batches of them. This year for the holidays, I made 3 but realized that next year, i'll have to bump it to 4, it's just THAT good! :) So sorry I just couldn't get my act together to post this in time for YOU to use too, but remember it for next year! :)
So, without further ado, here's the recipe: Caramel Pretzel Bars


Pin It

Here's a glimpse of some of the treat items that made my gift-giving list this year and the scary thing was this wasn't all of it! Every year I vow to start earlier, get more organized, do things faster, but next year, I MEAN it! Plus, I'm gonna blog it all, early too, so we can bake AND gift them together! :)


Update 12/2014: Made 6 batches of these this year and had to share some updated pix, including the very first one in this post. :)
