White Chocolate Salted Caramel Pretzel Crisps satisfied many a craving for me this past week. Chocolate….check. Pretzels…..check. Caramel……check.


White Chocolate Salted Caramel Pretzel Crisps
If I don’t quit eating, I’m going to weight a ton! One of the downsides to writing a food blog is, ya gotta eat the stuff you make!! Oh wait ….thats a perk!! Over the past few months, I have had a serious sweet tooth……I’ve had it bad!

Awhile back I made Campfire Cupcakes, they were so cute. Click here for the recipe. Problem was, I only need a few pretzels for the cupcakes, so I had a whole bag of pretzels left. What to do, what to do??

I remember as a kid, cookies made from chow mien noodles. They were no bake and easy to make. Just a few ingredients……I think they were called Haystacks. Why not make something similar and use up some of those pretzels?

Pretzels dipped in white bark is one of my favorite holiday treats, that salty & sweet taste gets me every time. And guess what? I just happened to have a bag of white chocolate chips just waiting to be made into something yummy.

Something more than crushed pretzel or it would just be crushed pretzels with chocolate….not that there is anything wrong with that. Cereal always makes a good no bake treat and rice crispy treats are always a good thing. Rice Krispies it is!

Just one more thing???? Whoever thought up salted caramel is my hero. I’m sure it is passé in some circles, but I’m a fan for life! I think I have used Kraft Caramel Bits in other recipes on the site, they are the bomb! No unwrapping untold amounts of caramels, just dump what you need into the recipe. They melt with ease or just toss them into a recipe like I did here. They are soft enough to eat ….ok, right out of the bag, but also in your favorite recipe.

I melted the remaining caramel bits and drizzled them over the treats and sprinkled them with a goodly amount of sea salt.

Four ingredients, no baking, just a few minutes of melting and mixing and ta da!! A cookie, candy, sweet & salty treat!

Pistachio Cranberry Crack

DISCLAIMER: I will not be held responsible for the amount of this you will want to eat!!!!!

This is the most addictive thing I have ever made……..hence the name. Seriously, I could not get enough. Tim and I almost made ourselves sick eating it…….it was that good!!!!

I know Christmas is over, but the Holiday season is not………not quite yet. I am sure many of you still have another Christmas or two, and there is still New Years Eve. Make this, take this, be the star……..if after you make it, there is any left to take…..lol.

Having all things I like…….dried cranberries, pistachios, white chocolate……..heaven……..I sorta sang that last word.

Pistachio Cranberry Crack

I have seen recipes with saltine crackers as a base and skimmed by them, saltines are something I am not overly fond of. They remind me of being a kid…….when we were sick we got saltines and flat 7up. But, they add the perfect touch of salty crunch to this recipe. A quick brown sugar, butter toffee over the saltines, then white chocolate topped with the cranberries and pistachios………salty, sweet, tart, nutty…….and in one bite! As if you can only eat one bite!
