Chocolate Butterscotch Pretzels


In my holiday baking frenzy, I've ended up with odd amounts of leftover items here and there. A few square marshmallows from a dish, a handful or two of holiday shaped pretzels, half a cup pf butterscotch chips, etc. Not wanting to hold onto these ingredients for an undetermined amount of time, I headed on over to the lifesaver of leftover ingredients, otherwise known as Pinterest. A quick search for butterscotch and pretzels led me to this recipe and I decided to change it up from a truffle or a bite and not do a complete coating of the chocolate on top.

    • 15 round or holiday-shaped pretzels 
    • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
    • 1/2 tbsp. shortening
    • 15 marshmallows (if regular marshmallows, cut in half)
    • 1/2 cup chocolate almond bark 
    • sprinkles
1. Arrange pretzels in a single layer on a parchment or wax lined baking sheet.
2. Combine butterscotch chips and shortening together in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Continue to microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each until the mixture is smooth.
3. Using two forks, dip each marshmallow into the melted butterscotch, toss to coat and then place on top of the pretzel.
4. Repeat with remaining marshmallows, then let set for 20 minutes.
5. Microwave the almond bar in 30 second intervals until smooth, then pick up the marshmallow by its pretzel bottom, flip over and dip the marshmallow part into the chocolate. Arrange sprinkles on top. Repeat with remaining marshmallow topped pretzels.
