Crazy Addictive Buttered Rum Pretzel Bark is an easy and quick dessert to make for the holidays. Your family and friends won’t be able to resist the combination of sweet and salty flavors. I dare you to eat just one!
Dude, this Crazy Addictive Buttered Rum Pretzel Bark is awesomeballs. Forget amazeballs, I’m trying to make awesomeballs happen. You can kiss your diet goodbye because this bark is irresistible. I’m literally typing this post while noshing on some bark. I’m about to go grab another piece, its lure is too much for me to handle right now. I’ll be right back…
Mmmm, this stuff is crazy addictive! In my opinion, nothing beats the combination of sweet and salty flavors in a dessert. The main ingredients in this recipe are pretzels, pecans, chocolate, butter, and brown sugar, however, I add depth to the flavor with the addition of vanilla, rum, and a dash of cinnamon. This recipe is remarkably easy to make and ridiculously impossible to resist.
OMG, I’m so excited you guys. Our good friends Phoebe and Eric moved to Wisconsin but are coming back to visit all of their friends in the area. We have plenty of room so we offered for them to stay with us. Phoebe and Eric is the couple who helped us tear down the wall between our kitchen and dining room.
Kieran and I are excited about Phoebe and Eric visiting for a multitude of reasons. First, they are outstanding people. When they lived in Portland they were always there to lend a helping hand when we needed it. Second, they are hysterical and an utter joy to be around. Phoebe not only accepts my perverted humor, she encourages it! That girl makes my cheeks and stomach hurt with laughter every time I see her, I love it. Third, we get to see their adorable daughter Seren. We met Seren when she was first born, but I can’t wait to see her now. Seren is going to be a hilarious baby if she’s anything like her parents 🙂
Phoebe and Eric lived in Portland for roughly 8 years before they moved to Wisconsin to work their dream job. Over those 8 years, they have made tons of great friends. They obviously want to see as many friends as possible during their visit so I offered to host a party at our house. The theme of the party will be a boozey brunch potluck (my kind of party). I’m crazy excited to host another party. I should really host parties for a living, I love it. I told Phoebe I’m in charge of the cheese board!
I’m going to serve this Crazy Addictive Buttered Rum Pretzel Bark at the party too. I’m sure I can resist eating the remaining bark until the party.
Yeah right, like any of us believes that! This batch of bark will be devoured before I can finish writing this damn post! I’ll have to whip up another batch for the party. Speaking of this batch, I’ll be right back…
Damn, this Crazy Addictive Buttered Rum Pretzel Bark is tasty AF. Someone, please help me. Take the bark far, far away from me! I can’t be trusted around it. It’s sweet and salty siren sings out for me. I’ll be right back…
OK, I think I can control myself for the remainder of this post. I need to focus and push the thought of its deliciousness out of my mind. You can do this Christina, concentrate woman!
I love recipes like this because it’s so easy to adapt them to your personal preference. Do you have a gluten allergy? Simple, swap almonds for the pretzels. Want to add some fruit? Awesome, throw in some dried fruit. Want to dress the bark up so it looks all fancy? Simple, add festive sprinkles. Actually, in hindsight, I wish I would have added either white or green and red sprinkles to the top of the bark. It would have added a festive touch! Balls, maybe next time.
I love this bark so much because it’s both sweet and salty and soft and crunchy. The flavors and textures dance on your tongue creating the ultimate tastebuds party in your mouth! This bark is probably one of the best desserts I’ve ever made! If you love toffee and chocolate mixed with crunchy pretzels and a little bit of rum, you are going to adore this recipe. Remember to proceed your mouth with caution because once you take a bite you’ll be hooked!
