Sprinkled Episode 6: Caramel Pretzels

A 2012 recipe is the star of the latest episode of Sprinkled. I’m really excited to bring loaded caramel dipped pretzels back to life because it’s a recipe you don’t want to miss. The October Baking Challenge (homemade toffee) is focused on candy, so these kid-friendly, super easy, salty sweet treats are the perfect fit for episode 6!

Earlier this year, a video production crew filmed me at work in my kitchen. Most of the time was spent filming step-by-step recipe tutorials, but they also filmed me working, writing, photographing, and recipe testing. The series is called Sprinkled. ๐Ÿ™‚ For the recipe tutorials, I selected my favorite blog recipes ranging from cookies and cake to brownies and pie.

  1. I enjoyed watching this episode of sprinkled so much!
    Looking forward to the next one! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Julie!!

    2. Hi Sally,
      I think you are so adorably sweet!!! I absolutely loved watching your sprinkled video! The personal touches you add, including the everyday events that happen as you are working, I will be making these sprinkled pretzels for the holidays. Looking forward the next video on homemade pie dough!!

      1. Thank you, Kim! YOU are so sweet!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It’s so nice to see videos of you in action, especially when you address the little things that might happen – the butter bubbling up, the caramel dripping off the pretzel as you’re coating it. So many times things like that happen and I think, shoot, is this normal? Did I do something wrong?

    Thanks Sally!

    1. Thank you Claire! I’m so happy you find these helpful ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Every episode just makes me smile and smile Sally. So very well done. Congrats girly!

    1. So sweet, thank you Renee!

  4. Another great episode! I like the behind-the-scenes clips. It’s good to see how much time and effort you put into each recipe, each blog, each video. You must be exhausted! Thank you for sharing your hard work. I feel very fortunate.

    1. Thank you, Tina! It is a lot of work but so well worth it to share my passion with others ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for watching!!

  5. Sharon K (The Farm Chick Bakes) says:

    Hi Sally,
    Another GREAT episode! I love how simple you truly do make making this caramel sauce! I’ve made this several times and of course when making decorated pretzel rods! You gave me a GREAT idea! What a fun little thing to do with my neighbors daughter who is 12! So fun. I LOVED seeing Noelle, franklin and Jude in this one too! Your family is so beautiful. So Blessed.

    1. Thank you Sharon! I hope you have fun making these with your neighbors!!

  6. Sally, You are adorable! Very pleasant voice.. will have to give these a try.. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much Bernice! Hope you enjoy these ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Sue Ringsdorf says:

    I love watching these episodes!! You are the SWEETEST! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for watching Sue!

  8. I love this Sprinkle episodes because they are so interactive! I also loved seeing Noelle, Jude, and Franklin. You guys look like you have so much fun! It is so true that they always do Chocolate covered pretzels. I bet they are even better with your homemade cameral sauce. Your cameral sauce is so good with the mini cheesecake recipe- they were delicious! Thank you again for another great recipe Sally!

    1. We do have so much fun together ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for watching this episode!

  9. Vicki Skonieczny says:

    Thanks for another wonderful “Sprinkled” episode. These are so enjoyable to watch. I really appreciated the in-depth tutorial part about making the caramel. I’ve always been a little intimidated about any candy making, but I think I can try my hand at the caramel after watching. The best part for me was when Jude barked, our dog Riley popped his head up and started looking around. The hubs thought that was hysterical! So say hello to Jude and Franklin from Riley!

    1. Lolol that is so funny!! Happy caramel making – you can TOTALLY do it! Let me know how it goes ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Best one yet! A little chocolate shop in my town sells pretzel rods that are dipped in caramel, THEN dipped in chocolate, and they are to die for! These remind me of those. The caramel is such a fun surprise!

    Your family is so beautiful, thank you for sharing them with us!

    1. Oh my gosh those pretzels sound amazing!! Thank you for watching Rebecca ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Vicki Darnell says:

    Have enjoyed your blog for quite some time. Now that I have discovered your video posts. I am even more appreciative of your work.

    Great job!

    1. Thank you so much Vicki!

  12. These look so amazing and I’m definitely going to be making my own caramel from now on! These videos are also super sweet and you are like the Millennial Martha Stewart.

    1. What a compliment! Thank you Samantha ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Hi Sally,
    I love the video! I was hoping though to learn how to make them. Do you have a receipe (coming) to home make the pretzel rods, too?
    I would feel much better to wrap them as a home made gift if I actually made them from scratch ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Katrin- I don’t have a homemade pretzel rod recipe on my site, I use store bought rods in this recipe. Good luck!

  14. Thank you, that was fun to watch! Very informative! I am going to try this soon!!


    1. Thank you so much, JoAnn! Let me know how you like the caramel pretzels. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Sally, your tutorials. make me so less hesitant to try something new. I am definitely going to make these loaded pretzels. Who knew caramel could be so easy!

  16. Episode 6 is great- I need these pretzels in my life! Thanks for making it look easy enough for me to try.

  17. Sally,
    Those look so good. Have you ever dipped them in chocolate, before or after the caramel? They make these marshmallows at Disneyland with chocolate and caramel that are so good, then with sprinkles. Wondering if you could do the same with the pretzels. Thanks and let us know what Noelle will be for Halloween.

    1. Hi Suzy! I personally haven’t, but a few readers have said they dunk one end of the pretzel rods in caramel, let the caramel set, then dunk in melted chocolate on top of the caramel. I can only imagine how good that is and I’m dying to try them that way this holiday season.

  18. So fun to see you making this recipe and to have a visit with Jude and Franklin too! Thanks for all your hard work; we have many favorites from your recipes!

  19. I love these videos!! I love to bake and somehow have never been successful in my attempts to make caramel. I tried to watch the video closely that showed you making the caramel. Do you stir it the whole time and you didnโ€™t worry about brushing the sides for sugar crystals? Mine always ends up clumping up or grainy.

    1. Hi Suzanne! I stir the cooking caramel mostly the entire time, yes– except when it needs to boil at the end. I never experience sugar crystals on the side of the pan, however, you can certainly use a water-moistened pastry brush to brush down the sides.

  20. Sarah Donatelli says:

    I love everything you do! I get such good reviews from all the recipes I make of yours. Do you have a favorite kind of sprinkles

    1. Hi Sarah! I love sprinkles by Wilton brand and Sweetapolita sprinkles. My latest favorite are these naturally colored sprinkles.

  21. Thank you so much for the video. I made these a few years ago with chocolate & caramel & struggled a bit. I call that time Before Sally!
    I will be doing these again your way. Love the mason jar idea!
    I am so happy I found you & all your followers!

  22. Heather M. Whipple says:

    I love this.
    I will be pinning this soon.
    So very informative.

  23. I showed my son your Instagram feed and asked him to pick out a dessert he wants for his birthday party with his friends and he came across this one. What a great idea for the kids! A pretzel dipping bar! Thanks for all your great recipes! And for a kid friendly feed. Some use language and I just donโ€™t know why it needs to be there with the delicious food! โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

    1. Thanks so much! These are so much fun for a kids party, I agree. Careful because the caramel is a little warm.

      1. Iโ€™ll remember that, thank you for mentioning about the caramel โ˜บ๏ธ
