Salted Chocolate Toffee Bark to die for!

A few years ago a friend got me into Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.  All I have to say in one word is YUM.  Now, I get her emails daily and each day I want to make something new from her inspiration.

Looking for something amazingly tasty and EASY?  Look no further.  I have made this recipe a few times now and every single time, people are like “Who made this??”, “It’s devine!”, “WHERE can I get the recipe?”…or “Patrice, this is evil because I am never going to stop eating it!”…now, that’s a chocolate recipe I’m looking for. :-)

Super simple…I think the last time I made it I had twenty minutes before having to pick up one of the kids.  Easy-Peazy.

After the 3 minutes, immediately pour the hot toffee mixture over the pretzels in a back and forth motion.  Not to worry if there are gaps as they will fill in during baking.
