Question Caramel Dipped Pretzel Recipe HELP!!

Last year DD and I made the best ever pretzels that were dipped in homemade caramel and dark chocolate. I am pretty sure the recipe was in Family Fun, but I am not sure and I can't find it. Does anyone have a recipe??? I don't want one that calls for melting caramel squares, and that's all I am finding.

TIA!

Allison

ps: Haven't been here for awhile and I have to say that I'm not too wild about the color scheme.

Was the recipe similar to this one?

Caramel Dipped Pretzels

1 c sugar
3/4 c butter
2 Tbsp water
1 (10 oz.) pkg. large pretzels

Spread waxed paper on a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, butter and water.
Over low heat, heat mixture to a boiling - stir occasionally.
Continue cooking until mixture becomes a syrup and reaches 270 degrees on a thermometer.
Test by dropping a little bit in cold water and if it is ready , it will separate like threads.
Dip pretzels into hot caramel then hold over the pan to drip.
Lay on wax paper and let dry.

I'm sure you could dip in chocolate once the caramel is dry.

No, not exactly, it defintely used brown sugar, but I may give this a whirl.

DD now thinks maybe the recipes were in Better Homes or even Ladies Home Journal, so I am going to check those sites now.

Thanks!

I found this recipe at both www.bhg.com and www.lhj.com. I don't see a mention of dark chocolate, but I wondered if it might be the one you were looking for. It had four reviews by people who tried the recipe, and all gave the recipe five stars.

I thought I might trying making some for the holidays.

Pretzel Yummies

Makes 25 pretzel rods or 15 whole Bavarian pretzels
Prep: 40 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

2 cups walnuts (8 ounces)
1 cup peanut butter-flavored pieces
1 cup milk chocolate pieces
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light-colored corn syrup
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
25 pretzel rods or one 14-ounce package whole Bavarian pretzels

1. In a food processor combine walnuts, peanut butter pieces, and chocolate pieces. Cover and process until mixture is coarsely chopped (or coarsely chop nuts, peanut butter pieces, and chocolate pieces with a knife and combine). Transfer mixture to a large bowl; set aside.

2. In a small heavy saucepan combine brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Return to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low. Clip a candy thermometer to side of pan. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 236 degree F, soft-ball stage (should take about 10 minutes). (Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a steady boil.) Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly thickened.

3. Dip each pretzel into caramel mixture, covering about 2/3 of the pretzel. Let caramel drip off slightly. Spoon or roll some of the crumb mixture onto the caramel, pressing crumbs lightly into caramel with back of a spoon. Let stand on nonstick foil until caramel is set. Store in an airtight container between layers of wax paper in refrigerator up to 4 days or freeze up to 1 month. Makes 25 pretzel rods or 15 whole Bavarian pretzels.

This is it!

I remember now that I made it a few ways. First, I did it as the recipe called for -- and it is YUMMY. But I needed more and I was out of some of the ingredients, so I just dipped them in the caramel, let them dry, dipped them into melted dark chocolate, then drizzled them with melted white chocolate.

Thanks for all your help!!
