Salted Caramel Pretzel Bar

2 sticks of butter
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 regular bag of gluten-free pretzels (you'll use about 3/4 of the bag)
12-ounce bag of chocolate chips
Sea salt (I use our coarse sea salt with our grinder)

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Line a large bar pan with parchment paper, cover with pretzels.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. When it begins to bubble, add the brown sugar. Stirring occasionally, let the butter/sugar mixture meld together and brown. This should take about three minutes. Do NOT let it boil, you will have sticky goo that is no good. When you have a nice, brown caramel, pour it over the pretzels, slowly and evenly. You can then use a spatula to spread it out, you have to work quickly and gently. It hardens fast, so even pouring is the best method.

Bake the sheet for 5 minutes.

Remove the sheet from the oven and sprinkle the whole bag of chocolate chips evenly over the mixture.

Place back in over for about 45 seconds. If you let it sit there too long, the chocolate will burn.

Remove from the oven and use a silicone spatula to evenly spread the chocolate over the top.

Sprinkle with sea salt and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.
