Pretzel Toffee

original recipe from Jen's Favorite Cookies
Recipe from Lisa @The Cutting Edge or Ordinary

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups pretzel pieces (I used Synder’s Pretzel Snaps* see note)
1 cup chocolate chips

In a heavy saucepan, melt butter. Add sugar, and stir to dissolve. Continue cooking and stirring over medium high heat until it is the color of a brown paper bag, about 7-10 minutes. (The mixture may separate and look clumped or curdled, and this is fine. The color is a more important indicator than the texture.)

Prepare a sheet pan (I recommend a quarter sheet pan) by lining with parchment paper or a silicone liner, or by generously buttering. Cover pan in a single layer of pretzels. Pour cooked candy onto pretzels as soon as it reaches the desired color.

Immediately top with chocolate chips. Let chips melt for a few minutes, then use a knife to spread like frosting. Let candy cool by chilling in fridge for about an hour. Use a large knife to break into pieces.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

*Note - I bought the Snyder Pretzel Snaps and filled half a sheet pan up with them. The snaps work really well because all the toffee gets trapped in the grids of the pretzel.
