*Pure Deliciousness*

Pure deliciousness is the best way to describe these homemade treats.
I got this idea in my head, and even though I still had tons of treats left from Christmas, I had to make them!
No matter how many you make, you'll wish you made more. Trust me. So make a lot. :)
Here's how: 

Steph's Pure Deliciousness Cups

Step 1: Make some gooey caramel from scratch (you know, lots of butter and brown sugar...) or I suppose you can cheat and just melt down some caramels from the store (it just won't be as good, you've been warned). 

Step 2: Pour some of your favorite melted chocolate into a cupcake liner. I used silicone cups. You can just paint the chocolate on the bottom and up the sides a bit, but I like lots of chocolate, so I just poured it in! :)
 Step 3: Add a warm gooey (generous) spoonful of caramel over the chocolate layer.
 Step 4: Add a pretzel.  
 Step 5: Smother that unsuspecting pretzel with more delicious chocolate.
Step 6: Top with a garnish. I chose m&m's, but you could add just about anything!
Step 7: This is the hardest part of the whole thing. 
Wait.
Stick them in the fridge and let them set. I know it's hard, but you can do it! It will be well worth the wait!
 Step 8: Peel them out of their restricting shells and devour. 
 You can thank me later. :)

Pin It!

Wow! Those do look really yummy! And I totally agree with you about the homemade caramel being WAY better than melted Kraft squares (: Visiitng from Be One Fine Day's blog hop.
