Ready for the most addictive snack? These Butter Toffee Pretzels are insanely delicious, sweet and salty, buttery and crunchy goodness!
This may be one of the most addictive snacks I have ever made! Full stop, no joke. If you have issues with stopping after a handful, you’re going to want to steer clear of this one. Just kidding – you have got to try it and see what the hype’s about.
I got the idea for these addictive pretzels from watching a friend’s Trader Joe’s haul on Instagram Stories. She said she picked up some butter toffee pretzels from TJ’s and said they were amazing. While I only live about 10 minutes from a Trader Joe’s, I loathe going there because it is always insanely busy. The parking lot is comically small and cramped, and inside is just a madhouse, even with their new shopping restrictions. So yeah, I only like going if I absolutely, positively have to (like for their potstickers – yum!).
Perhaps I’ll pick some up another time, but to avoid the madhouse I decided I’d make my own and boy, I am glad I did! These Butter Toffee Pretzels are so delicious and easy, too!
You simply add an entire bag of pretzel twists to a large roasting pan that’s been lightly greased with cooking spray (trust me, this makes clean-up a breeze!). Then, you’ll make your toffee mixture. It’s as simple as adding butter, brown sugar, and light corn syrup to a saucepan and boiling it, then adding in some vanilla and baking soda. Pour the hot toffee mixture evenly over the pretzels, toss to coat, and I sprinkled in some Heath toffee bits on top for added crunch and to really drive home that toffee goodness.
The hardest part is the time it takes to bake – 1 hour, with stirring every 15 minutes to ensure the toffee coats each pretzel piece. Once baked, spread it out onto a wax paper-lined countertop and let it cool so the toffee coating hardens over the pretzels. It’ll create these irresistible little clusters of toffee pretzels – YUM.
These are sweet, salty, buttery, crunchy and SO divine! You’re going to love my Butter Toffee Pretzels – TJ’s who?!
Butter Toffee Pretzels
These Butter Toffee Pretzels are addictive, easy and SO divine! Buttery, crunchy, sweet and salty perfection in one easy and irresistible snack mix!
Servings: 10 cups
- 10 cups (One 16 oz bag) mini pretzel twists
- 1 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter cubed
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 bag Heath toffee bits
Preheat oven to 200° degrees F. Lightly grease a large roasting pan with cooking spray; I use a disposable one for easy cleanup. Add the pretzels to the roasting pan; set aside.
In a medium saucepan, add the brown sugar, cubed butter, and corn syrup and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract and baking soda; the toffee will bubble violently – this is normal.
Pour the hot toffee mixture evenly over the pretzels; sprinkle half of the bag of toffee bits over the pretzel mixture, too. Toss the pretzels to coat evenly in the toffee mixture and toffee bits.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes to ensure the hot toffee mixture evenly coats the pretzels. Once baked, spread the pretzel mixture onto a wax paper-lined countertop and immediately sprinkle with the remaining toffee bits. Allow the pretzels to set and harden, about 1 hour, before breaking into smaller clusters and packaging.
These pretzels will last about a week if stored properly in an airtight container at room temperature.
You guys are going to love how addictively sweet and salty these pretzels are!
Have a super sweet day!
