5-Ingredient Pretzel Crisps® Toffee Bark



I told ya’ll I’d be back today to tell you about my 2nd sponsor to BlogHer Food

I am beyond THRILLED to have Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps® as my co-sponsor this year because I flipping LOVE their product (again, I am NOT saying this b/c they are my sponsor)! PLEASE tell me you guys have tried some of these????? They are ADDICTING with a capital “A”.

For. Real.

Now when I was deciding on how I wanted to use the Pretzel Crisps® in a recipe for this post I was SO torn. Do I crush them up and use them as a coating for chicken (ya’ll KNOW i love to crust the heck out of things)? Or how about as a vessel for dip or other bite sized goodies? OOoo I could also use them as a topping for mac n’ cheese!! All excellent ideas… but I was still torn!

Then it hit me. My Aunt Lynn makes this super easy 5-ingredient toffee using graham crackers. I thought the pretzels would make a phenomenal substitute to give it a little salty crunchy goodness!

Oh. Man.

This stuff is like crack. Sweet, Salty, Crunchy, and Chewy… the best of all worlds! I literally had to smack hubs’ hand out of the way so I could snap my photos before he dug in and muttered “oh my goshhhh” “this is ridiculous” etc… haha 

Alright you guys, go grab yourself a bag of Pretzel Crisps® (found in the Deli section of your grocery store) and make this toffee ASAP!!!! If your not into the whole sweet thing (WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!??! hah), try some of these savory ideas:

Pretzel Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken with the Original Flavor

Hummus, Baba Ganoush, or Kalamata Olive Tapenade with the Sesame Flavor

Buffalo Chicken Dip with the Buffalo Flavor

The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!!

“Rethink your pretzel”, folks… 😉 BIG THANKS to Pretzel Crisps® for co-sponsoring me to attend BlogHer Food!!!!

Disclaimer: Although Pretzel Crisps® is one of my sponsors, the opinions of their products within this post are my own! I have always been a fan of their product!

5-Ingredient Pretzel Crisps® Toffee Bark

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15-20 minutes


1 bag Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps® (Original flavor)
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
12 ounce bag of chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a jelly roll pan (or lipped baking sheet) with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place Pretzel Crisps® in the bottom of the prepared pan in an even layer with edges overlapping.

In a medium non-stick skillet (& stirring constantly), melt the butter and brown sugar over medium high heat until melted and bubbling, about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract until well combined. Pour mixture evenly over Pretzel Crisps®. Spread gently with a spatula. Bake for 5 minutes at 400ºF.

Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Allow to sit for 5 minutes to allow chocolate chips to melt. Using a spatula, evenly spread across toffee. Allow to cool completely (may place in refrigerator to speed up the process). Once cooled, gently break bark apart into pieces and serve.

    Oh, crumb! The recipe calls for one bag… but the bag I bought the other day was 14 oz… I think… and the only size I could find today was 7.5 oz. What size did you use? I can’t wait to try this! I’m thinking it would be great with crushed nuts or crushed candy canes on top… or would that be guilding the lily? Tis the Season!

    I loved how easy the recipe is, but my toffee never hardened-it’s chewy and taffy-like. Maybe I misunderstood the directions-do you bring the butter and sugar to a boil and boil it for 5-10 minutes, or immediately add the vanilla and pour?

    The recipe did not work for me either so unfortunately I wasted all those yummy pretzel crisps and the chocolate. Had to throw it all away. Very disappointing.
