Gourmet pretzel sticks
SmartPoints® value per serving
The saltiness and crunch of the pretzels combined with the sweetness of the caramel and sprinkles make this a delectable snack or after-dinner treat. These also make a healthy hostess gift for a friend. Three ingredients and 8 minutes are all you need to make these quick and easy snack treats. You can melt the caramels either in the microwave or on a saucepan over low heat. The trick with either method is to make sure that you consistently stir the caramel so that it doesn't burn. For the sprinkles, you can use multi-colored sprinkles. Or, if you are making them for a specific holiday, you can use certain holiday colors.
1 oz, soft, about 4 squares
1 Tbsp, chocolate
