    Chocolate caramel pretzels are the perfect make-ahead dessert idea. They stay tasty in an airtight container for several days so they are ready to go when you need them.

    These little babies are perfect for taking to a party, for favors at a get-together, for serving as a dessert, or for shipping to friends and family as a gift. They also ship well and are liked by kiddos and adults alike.

    While I am sure you have a baking sheet in your kitchen’s arsenal, you might need to purchase one special item: a non-stick silicone baking mat.

    This prevents the hot caramel from sticking to your baking sheet and making clean up a real pain. You can also use parchment paper as a decent alternative, but I find the silicone baking mats to be easiest in this case.

    In terms of your chocolate, you have two options. You can put it in a heat-safe bowl and pop it into the microwave, heating it in 10-15 second intervals as to not burn it and mixing it in between each heating. This method while easy has a tendency to make gloppy chocolate.

    Nine times out of ten, I use a double boiler for a creamy and even melt. The beauty of this method is that you can always add it back to the double boiler to reheat is it starts to get too hard for dipping.

    Be sure to allow the chocolate to set completely before you plate them up or pile them into a bag as gifts. You can always pop them in the fridge for a few minutes just to be sure. If you don’t, the gorgeous decorations might go awry.
