Pretzel Caramel Brittle


200g pretzels

150g caster sugar

150g golden syrup

100g butter

4 tbs water

100g dark chocolate


  1. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper and spread the pretzels evenly on the tray - it’s ok if they overlap.
  2. Place the sugar, golden syrup, butter and water into a saucepan over low-medium heat. Stir gently until the ingredients have melted and started to bubble.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes (to test, drizzle half a teaspoonful into a glass of cold water; if the caramel hardens, it’s ready). Never leave the pan unattended and turn the heat down if the bubbles rise too close to the top of the pan.
  4. Spoon the caramel evenly all over the pretzels and set aside to cool and harden.
  5. Melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the top.
  6. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, then break the brittle into shards to serve.
