Day 4: Salted Caramel Pretzel Pecan Bon-Bons

Salted Caramel Pretzel Pecan Bon-Bons


Welcome to Day 4 of my 12 Days of Christmas making, baking and decorating. Today I bring you a most decadent treat that is both salty and sweet (two of my favorite things). A gift anyone on your Christmas list would be happy to receive. This recipe yields 40 bon bons, meaning you could eat 10 and still have enough to make 3 people very happy!

Preheat your oven to 325 F.  Place your mini pretzels on a parchment lined baking sheet.


Unwrap your caramels and place one caramel per one pretzel.


Bake them for 7-8 minutes. You want the caramel soft enough to accept the pecan, but definitely not melted!


Once the caramel pretzels have emerged from the oven, you’ll want to quickly press a toasted pecan into the top of each one.


Now comes the fun and sometimes messy part (0k I made a mess but I’m not showing you…) .img_6204I decided to only dip the bottom of each bon-bon in chocolate and drizzle the tops with more chocolate. You may also choose to only dip the bottoms, or dip the bottoms and drizzle the tops with chocolate like I did or you might get all wild and crazy and dip the whole bon-bon in chocolate, there are lots of options.
