Ready for the most addictive snack? These Butter Toffee Pretzels are insanely delicious, sweet and salty, buttery and crunchy goodness!

This may be one of the most addictive snacks I have ever made! Full stop, no joke. If you have issues with stopping after a handful, you’re going to want to steer clear of this one. Just kidding – you have got to try it and see what the hype’s about.

I got the idea for these addictive pretzels from watching a friend’s Trader Joe’s haul on Instagram Stories. She said she picked up some butter toffee pretzels from TJ’s and said they were amazing. While I only live about 10 minutes from a Trader Joe’s, I loathe going there because it is always insanely busy. The parking lot is comically small and cramped, and inside is just a madhouse, even with their new shopping restrictions. So yeah, I only like going if I absolutely, positively have to (like for their potstickers – yum!).

Perhaps I’ll pick some up another time, but to avoid the madhouse I decided I’d make my own and boy, I am glad I did! These Butter Toffee Pretzels are so delicious and easy, too!

You simply add an entire bag of pretzel twists to a large roasting pan that’s been lightly greased with cooking spray (trust me, this makes clean-up a breeze!). Then, you’ll make your toffee mixture. It’s as simple as adding butter, brown sugar, and light corn syrup to a saucepan and boiling it, then adding in some vanilla and baking soda. Pour the hot toffee mixture evenly over the pretzels, toss to coat, and I sprinkled in some Heath toffee bits on top for added crunch and to really drive home that toffee goodness.

Once baked, spread it out onto a wax paper-lined countertop and let it cool so the toffee coating hardens over the pretzels. It’ll create these irresistible little clusters of toffee pretzels – YUM.
