It’s that time of year when everyone’s calendars are sprinkled with holiday parties. To get in a festive spirit, we give you this wonderful pretzel bark recipe. This pretzel bark is easy to put together, and it makes a beautiful gift. It is also dangerously good. You can wrap the bark in a festive plastic and hand it out as gifts during the holidays.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Then add the brown sugar and whisk until melted.
Add the cream and vanilla and let the sauce slowly simmer and reduce for 20-25 minutes, until it has thickened.
While the caramel is simmering, line the pan with parchment. Then, lay pretzels over.
Once the caramel is ready, reduce heat to low to keep warm. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or, by placing a saucepan into a larger pan of boiling water).
Drizzle about 1/3 of the caramel over the pretzels. Then, drizzle half of the chocolate over. Use a spatula to evenly spread out the chocolate. Next, drizzle the remaining caramel and the chocolate over. Again, use the spatula to evenly distribute everything.
Let the bark cool. I let it cool on a counter, but you could place it in the fridge.
Once the bark as hardened, lift the parchment to remove it from the pan. Then, use a sharp knife to cut into triangles. It might break a bit as you do this, but the little broken bits are great snacks.
