- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup butter, cubed
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (10 ounce) package pretzel sticks
- 6 -12 ounces white candy coating
- 6 -12 ounces milk chocolate confectionary coating
- 3⁄4 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)
- In heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and butter. Bring just to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling, without stirring, at a moderate-steady rate for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in milk. Return to the heat. Reduce to medium-low; cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 245 (firm ball stage). Keep warm.

- In a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, melt white candy coating. Dip half of the caramel-coated pretzels into coating. Melt milk chocolate coating; dip remaining pretzels.
- Drizzle white coated pretzels with milk chocolate coating; drizzle milk chocolate coated pretzels with white coating. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired. Store in an airtight container.
