    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
    • 1 tablespoon corn syrup (I have subbed this out with extra molasses, honey and agave in the past, all with great results)
    • 1 tablespoon molasses
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (I have subbed out vanilla in the past)
    • 5 cups miniature pretzels
    • 1 cup salted peanuts (unsalted is fine too)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and molasses. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 45-50 seconds or until the butter is melted; stir.
    2. 2
      Microwave 15-25 seconds longer or until mixture boils. Immediately stir in the salt, baking soda and extract (mixture will foam).
    3. 3
      Stir in pretzels and peanuts. Microwave on high for 20-30 seconds or until pretzels and nuts are well coated, stirring twice.
    4. 4
      Spread into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan. (If I use unsalted peanuts, I sprinkle some extra sea salt on the top of the mixture). Cool for 15 minutes, stirring twice. Store in an airtight container.

      Made this 7 am this morning. You get three "yes" votes from us. I prefer not to use corn syrup, and I was going to substitute honey but I couldn't find it, so I used maple syrup and it worked fine. Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

      This is way too easy! It's only about 5 minutes to throw together with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. I even used up hardened chunks of brown sugar...it melts just fine with the butter. Yummy treat!

      My almost 8 year old daughter wanted a recipe she could make mostly on her own. I found this one and she approved. She only needed me for a few minor things, and this turned out well. Her review "It was really good and I liked the sauce the best."
