Caramel.  Who doesn’t like caramel?  True question…I want to know…how in the world could you NOT like caramel?  It’s sugar + heat.  The stuff addiction is made of.

Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips are my version of crack.  I used to keep a bag in my car when I was pregnant with Vivi girl.  True story.

Pink Himalayan salt is a much better option than that big, navy Morton stuff your Granny has stockpiled in her pantry.  You know the stuff.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Place chocolate chips in a Ziploc bag, remove all air, and seal.  Place the bag in a large bowl full of hot water to melt chocolate chips.
  2. Unwrap caramels and combine with almond milk in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 30 seconds, remove and stir mixture until caramels are melted.  Microwave for an additional 30 seconds if necessary.
  3. Set a large piece of parchment paper on a cool, flat surface.
  4. Pour half of the melted chocolate chips in a circle over the parchment paper.
  5. Scatter the broken pretzel pieces over the chocolate.
  6. Pour the caramel mixture over the pretzels.
  7. Drizzle the remainder of the melted chocolate chips on top of the caramel.
  8. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  9. Let bark set on parchment paper in a cool, dry place.
  10. If you are an out of control chocaholic like myself, place in the fridge to expedite the setting process resulting in quicker insertion of choc. bark into mouth.
  11. Once the bark has completely hardened, break into pieces and deliver to your friends and fam, who are basically the luckiest people on Earth to have someone so thoughtful and generous as you.
  12. And now, to reward yourself….go buy this perfectly nude polish that is a winter esssential.
