I made this salted caramel pretzel bark as a treat to bring to our holiday luncheon at work. A few people around campus know about the blog and my love of cooking (in heels!) so my bark was well-received!
I used the following recipe (retrieved and modified slightly from this recipe):
- ½ bag of mini pretzel twists
- 2 sticks of butter (1 cup total)
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 3/4 cups dark chocolate chips
- course kosher salt
I used slightly less chocolate (personal preference) and the bark was still plenty chocolate-y. I also went with dark chocolate (again, personal preference) and it turned out wonderfully!
I failed to take photos of the finished, broken up product, but this was SO DELICIOUS (but slightly painful to break apart - I got caught on sharp pretzel edges once or twice). And a huge hit at my holiday luncheon. Mission: Accomplished.
Another mission accomplished: shoe success!
The F - who NEVER reads my blog, btw - tracked down the (sold out at Nordstrom) Cole Haan's I'd been eye-balling and surprised me with them for Christmas. It's been a long while since I've snapped a pic of shoes on my very own feet, so here you go! Messy desk and all!
