Cook Time
60min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Dietz & Watson Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 tbsp Butter, unsalted
  • 1 tbsp Heavy Cream
  • 6 oz Pretzels, thin
  • 8 oz Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips

Directions

  1. 1 Line 8-inch square baking pan with non-stick foil.
  2. 2 Break up 4 oz of the pretzels and evenly line the bottom of the baking pan.
  3. 3 In a small sauce pan, on medium heat, stir the sugar into the water until the sugar has completely dissolved. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, do not stir. Swirl the pan so the caramel colors evenly, until it’s a light amber color (about 8-10 minutes). Remove from heat.
  4. 4 Add Dietz & Watson Whole Grain Dijon Mustard, heavy cream and butter. Then carefully whisk to incorporate. Immediately pour caramel mixture over pretzels as evenly as possible. Let sit for 20 minutes.
  5. 5 Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe dish in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until completely melted. Spread chocolate evenly over the caramel layer.
  6. 6 In a resealable bag, crush pretzels with a rolling pin. Sprinkle crushed pretzels over chocolate layer while it’s still melted.
  7. 7 Chill 30 minutes, then cut and serve.
