1 bag (16 ounces) of small pretzels (any shape)

1 cup unsalted butter

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups Heath Toffee Bits

Optional: Sea salt, for sprinkling


Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silicone mat, then spread the pretzels in a single layer on the sheet.

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once fully melted, mix in the brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat and let it simmer for 3 minutes without stirring, until it becomes a thick syrup.

Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract, noting that the mixture may bubble.

Evenly pour the toffee over the pretzels on the baking sheet, using a spatula to ensure all the pretzels are coated.

Bake in the oven for 7 to 8 minutes, until the toffee bubbles and slightly darkens in color.

Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the Heath Toffee Bits over the pretzels, spreading them as needed to ensure they adhere to the toffee.

Optionally, sprinkle a bit of sea salt over the top for an enhanced flavor profile.

Allow the pretzels to cool completely on the baking sheet, where the toffee will set and harden.

Once cooled, break the pretzels apart and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Enjoy these Butter Toffee Pretzels as a uniquely satisfying treat that perfectly captures the essence of sweet and salty snack nirvana.
