The same day I found the Earthquake Cake, I found this little beauty. You know how I like anything resembling bark. How can you go wrong with only 4 ingredients? As usual, I did not have the original cast of characters. I still don’t know what caramel bits are, but we did find Brach’s caramels. As usual, it took longer to unwrap the candies than anything else I did.
We put a piece of parchment paper down on a 10 x 15 inch rimmed cookie sheet. Next I measured out 8 ounces of the pretzel twists and layered them out evenly. I melted the chocolate chips and poured it over the pretzels. As you can probably tell, I had no instructions, only the ingredients. I simply saw a picture of the bark and thought how tough can that be. My famous last words.
Next I put the caramels in the microwave with a tablespoon or so of cream to facilitate melting. I had a major time getting them smooth. They never did pour evenly. I would change my method next time. After I finally got it spread, I sprinkled my salt. It needed a half an hour or so in the refrigerator.
- 1 11 ounce bag Kraft caramel bits
- 1 teaspoon Sea salt
