4th of July M&M Bark

Author: Jennifer Tammy


  • 1 cup pretzels enough to line the bottom of a pan
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Patriotic M&Ms can use sprinkles or other candies as desired


  • Preheat your oven to 350F
  • Line the bottom of a baking tray or casserole dish with parchment paper.
  • Place your brown sugar and butter in a saucepan over medium heat and melt. Cook for 2 minutes after they have melted, until the mixture reaches a caramel color.
  • You can use a candy thermometer if it makes you more confident but it is not required.
  • While the butter-sugar mixture is caramelizing, lay down an even layer of pretzels in your baking pan.
  • Pour the sticky butter-sugar mixture over the pretzels and smooth with an offset spatula.
  • Sprinkle the white chocolate chips over the caramel-pretzel layer and place in the oven for 4 minutes.
  • Remove the baking pan from the oven and use a clean offset spatula to smooth the chocolate. The white chocolate may still look unmelted but remove it and try to smooth it - it may spread easily. If not, heat for an additional minute until spreadable.
  • While the chocolate is still melted, sprinkle on your M&Ms before placing the baking pan in the fridge.
  • After an hour, you can break up the candy and serve!
