Samoa Pretzels

Caramel + Chocolate + Pretzel = Yummy

Caramel + Chocolate + Coconut + Pretzel + Toasted Coconut = AMAZING!

I have been eyeing these pretzels over at Love From The Oven for quite some time now.
I wanted them sooooo bad; but they just looked time consuming to make, and anything caramel always makes me hesitate because it can flop. To my delight, they ended up being quick and easy to make. Plus, they are surprisingly foolproof, thanks to Kraft Caramel Bits*. I looked everywhere for them, but the only place I could find them was Wal-Mart for around $3.00 or on* but they are in bulk.

Samoa Pretzels
Recipe from Love From The Oven

1/2 - 1 pound bag Pretzels
1 - 11oz bag Kraft Caramel Bits*
2 - 12oz bags Chocolate Melts (I used Wilton Light Candy Cocoa Melts*)
1 - 14oz bag shredded coconut (some reserved for toasting)

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spray with cooking spray. You want to coat it with the spray.

2. Place pretzels on lined baking sheet.

3. Melt Kraft Caramel Bits* following package instructions. (Place caramel bits in microwave safe bowl with 2 Tablespoons of water. Cook for 2 minutes in the microwave. Then stir.)

4. Dip or drizzle your pretzels with the caramel, smooshing coconut on top of them as you go.

5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

6. Allow caramel to cool. This only takes a few minutes, but you can pop them in the refrigerator to speed it up if you want.

7. Toast some remaining coconut, by placing it on a baking sheet in the preheated oven and stirring it every couple of minutes. There really is no exact time for this, but keep your eye on it or it will burn.

6. Heat the chocolate melts in the microwave in 1 minute intervals. Stirring in between each minute until melted.

7. Dip the caramel coated pretzels in the chocolate, place on lined baking sheet, and top with toasted coconut.

8. Allow chocolate to harden.

9. Store in air tight container.
