  • Prep Time: 5 min
  • Cook Time: 30 min
  • Total Time: 35 min
  • Category: Dessert


  • 1 bag of dark chocolate chips (~12 oz.)
  • 1 cup pretzels, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or more per taste)


  1. Crush pretzels into smaller pieces (but not completely crushed) and set aside.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Melt chocolate chips in a large bowl in the microwave or with a broiler, stirring frequently and done in batches to avoid burning. I usually microwave in 30 sec- 1 minute intervals and stir frequently!
  4. Pour in pretzels, sea salt, and vanilla extract into the chocolate and mix well.
  5. Pour chocolate batter onto parchment paper, and smooth out with a spoon or soft spatula, until even and desired thickness.
  6. Sprinkle with additional sea salt if desired and add baking sheet to freezer to set for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Once hardened, take out of freezer and cut into pieces for bark. Enjoy!
  8. Keep in the fridge or freezer upon storage.


Get creative with add-ins! Try almonds, walnuts, M&Ms, crushed Oreos, goji berries, you name it!
