A tradition in our neighborhood is to exchange plates of cookies just before Christmas. I like to mix up the assortment of goodies that I give our neighbors from year to year which means that I’m always looking for new recipes to try. I recent recipe success was Butterscotch Pecan Pretzel Brittle. I don’t know if I’ll share it with our neighbors, but I do know that I’ll keep making this for us to enjoy.
This easy-to-make treat features pretzels and pecan coated with a syrup made with butterscotch morsels, butter, sugar, and maple syrup. It’s baked in the oven so that the syrup caramelizes over the mixture. Yum!
The combination of salty and sweet is so good. Mr. SP and I so much enjoyed this and finished off the batch in a shamefully short amount of time.
This is a quick and easy recipe to make and perfect for munching on while watching TV. If you are looking for a snack to enjoy or for one to share with friends this holiday season, consider making Butterscotch Pecan Pretzel Brittle. It’s so good!
