4 cups mini pretzels
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk chocolate chips
Optional: Sea salt flakes for sprinkling
Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the sides for easy removal.
Arrange the mini pretzels in a single layer to cover the bottom of the baking dish.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
Stir in the packed light brown sugar and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth and bubbling.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Pour the caramel mixture evenly over the pretzels in the baking dish, spreading it out with a spatula.
Sprinkle the milk chocolate chips evenly over the caramel layer.
Place the baking dish in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
Remove the dish from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften the chocolate slightly.
Using a knife, cut the bars into squares or rectangles.
Optional: Sprinkle sea salt flakes over the bars for an extra burst of flavor.
Serve and enjoy the delicious No-Bake Caramel Pretzel Crack Bars!
