  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

  3. In a large saucepan combine the butter, sugar, corn syrup and salt. Stir together over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil and cook until very thick and at the 'firm ball' stage (260 degrees F, 125 degrees C). Remove from heat, pour over pretzel/nut mixture and mix all together.

This was the second time making them, and I got the best compliments this time around! They disappeared in less than 30 minutes! I changed a few things, like microwaving the carmel ingredients in a huge bowl, and cooling the oven-heated mixture on the cookie sheet I used. Once cooled, I just put them in a bowl, omitting the wax paper step. The carmel came out smoother and tastier doing it this way. I also added about 1 tsp of cinnamon and about 1/4 tsp vanilla extract to the carmel to give it less of a butter flavor, which seemed overwhelming. But everything came together better this time around, using this method.

The temp to cook to, 260 degrees, was to high. It was starting to burn, so I had to stop cooking it early. Also, I would try spreading the nuts mixture over more than one pan so that it won't come out in one large clump like mine. I would also suggest salted nuts since I used unsalted and it needed a little more salty taste.

This was good and simple. It was so easy to make. My only suggestion is to spray the wax paper with Pam or something because I had to spend quite a bit of time peeling wax paper off of the caramel coating. My guests thoroughly enjoyed this! Certainly recommend. *****

this was a great snack that pleased young and old and was relatively easy to prepare. I have made it several times and just use peanuts instead of mixed nuts and it turned out fine. I know I will be making it again, and again, and again...

If you like caramel popcorn - you are sure to love these! This recipe is sooooo good and sooo addicting!! I had no problems with burning or mixing! BUT they were a little tricky getting them off the wax paper, but next time I'll use parchment paper or spray some pam on the waxed paper. Other than that, these were very tasty and an instant hit in my house. Great new snack Kevin!

Boy was this a hit during the holidays. It makes alot. I used peanuts instead of mixed nuts and sprayed my wax paper with cooking spray(no Problem with it sticking).

This recipe was great. But you need a really big pan to be stir it in. I had to seperate them into two pans. Also parchment paper works much better then wax paper to cool these pretzels on. It is a great twist on carmel corn.
