Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 325°F.

    Arrange the pretzel snaps on a parchment-lined baking sheet; divide the toasted pecans into 16 small piles on the parchment paper OR on top of each pretzel snap.

  • Step 2

    Flatten each caramel cube to approximately 1” square and place on top of the pecans.

    Heat in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the caramel softens and begins to melt.

    Remove from the oven; let cool.

  • Step 3

    Melt CANDIQUIK according to package directions.

    For the Pretzel version: drizzle each candy with chocolate coating (optional: dip each candy in chocolate coating).

    Sans pretzel: spoon a small amount of chocolate coating directly onto the parchment paper. Place the pecan/caramel candy on top of the chocolate. Drizzle with additional chocolate coating.

  • Step 4

    Top each candy with a few flakes of coarse sea salt.
