Who doesn’t enjoy a nice salted caramel candy? With a little crunch? You do? Then you might want to try these. I made my regular caramel candy recipe but added some stick pretzels instead of the pecans I normally add! WOW! What a fun treat! Smooth and creamy caramel with that salty flavor going on while you crunch on the pretzels?? It’s a party in your mouth!
Caramel Pretzel Candy
2 cups sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 3/4 cup light Karo syrup
2 sticks butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups pretzels (I used the stick kind)
In a large pot, mix sugar, 1 cup of the cream, Karo syrup and butter.
Bring to a boil on medium-high heat.
When it reaches a rolling boil, add the remaining 1 cup of cream.
heat to medium and continue to boil until mixture reaches the firm-ball
stage....about 235 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla.
Stir in the pretzels.
Pour into a buttered 9x13 inch baking dish. Let caramel cool and set up. Cut into bite-sized squares and wrap in plastic wrap.
