  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 100 chocolate-covered small pretzel twists *see notes below

  • In a large mixing bowl combine butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, caramel and milk. 
    Ingredients to make caramel pretzel bite candies
  • Use a hand or stand mixer to beat until combined. 
  • Beat in flour until combined. 
  • Using a small cookie scoop, or with a spoon, spoon a little ball of caramel cookie dough (about 1 teaspoon) and sandwich it between two chocolate covered pretzels. Repeat until all the cookie dough is sandwiched between chocolate covered pretzels. Set on cookie sheet.
  • Add candy coating (discs) to a small-medium bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between each, until melty and smooth (about 2 minutes).

  • Using a fork, dip each stuffed pretzel sandwich - be quick because you don't want the dark chocolate to melt into the white.

Notes

  • These last a week in an airtight container (probably longer, but I've never had them last that long).
  • I tested these using plain small pretzels and dark chocolate covered pretzels. If you're serving them day of, definitely you can use regular pretzels. However, if you want these to last a few days (if you're making them for holiday cookies or making them ahead), I'd highly recommend making them with chocolate covered pretzels. The chocolate coated pretzels won't get stale, where non-coated pretzels quickly get stale. Plus, the more chocolate the merrier.
