I love baking, especially during the holidays. There’s something very festive about the warmth of the oven and scent of sugar in the air. I do stick to my “keep it easy so anyone can do it” roots though and prefer simple recipes over labor intensive ones. With two little boys running around, I just don’t have time for crazy holiday baking. Plus the boys usually want to help so the steps can’t be too complicated!
I found a great Pretzel Toffee recipe in the Land O’Lakes 2013 Holiday Recipe brochure. It’s chocolate, it’s toffee, and it only calls for 5 ingredients! How could I go wrong? After picking up Land O’Lakes butter and other groceries at Walmart, I headed home to test the recipe out.
It is amazing. Truly easy to make and delicious to eat.
Pretzel Toffee Ingredients
- 6 ounces (4 cups) pretzel sticks
- 1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cups Land O Lakes® Butter
- 1 (12-ounce) package real semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 ounces white chocolate baking bar, curled
Pretzel Toffee Directions
- Heat oven to 400ºF. Line 15x10x1-inch baking pan with aluminum foil; butter foil. My banking pan was a little larger bit it worked fine. Make sure you butter the foil really well.
- Place pretzels in single layer on pan. My boys did an excellent job with this task. It helps if the pretzels are lined up neatly and fit tight within the pan. I made another batch without their help and threw my pretzels on loosely and it was a little difficult when spreading the chocolate in step 6, the pretzels kept moving around.
- Combine brown sugar and butter in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Continue cooking 2 minutes.
- Pour mixture over pretzels. Then bake 10 minutes.
- Remove pan from oven; sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips.
- Return to oven 1 minute to soften chocolate chips. Remove from oven. Gently spread chocolate over pretzels.
- Cool 30 minutes. Sprinkle with white chocolate curls. This was my first time making and using chocolate curls. I used a vegetable peeler and it was pretty easy. I feel like a fancy baker now. 😉
- Cool the toffee completely. Another 20-30 minutes in the freezer works great.
- Remove from freezer. Peel the foil of the block of toffee before breaking it up into pieces.

Easy Holiday Baking: Pretzel Toffee
Pretzel toffee makes a great edible gift. The recipe makes a full baking sheet full of toffee, plenty for several gifts! I took it to my mom’s tree trimming party and it was a huge hit. Seriously HUGE!
