1c. Karo syrup
1c. Brown sugar
1c. White sugar
1 stick of butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Put ingredients in a large sauce pan over medium heat and stir until melted and combined. Bring to a boil and stir for five minutes. Be careful to keep stirring so that it doesn't start to burn on the bottom of the pan.
Here is a variation on these chocolate caramel pretzel rods. Instead of rods, I sandwiched the caramel between two of the "snap" pretzels that look like rectangles.
I put the caramel in a squirt bottle for condiments to make it less messy.
After loading the pretzels with caramel, put on a top pretzel and place the cookie sheets in the fridge to set up for at least 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate and dip the pretzel sandwiches and place on wax paper and set.
This batch of caramel will make A TON of pretzel bites! You can also use it to make gooey popcorn balls.
And see those other candies with the red, white and green candy discs on top? I'll show you those in a day or so. They are worth the wait!
