Gluten-free pretzel squares that are gooey and so easy to make. They have a buttery base that is topped with a brown sugar filling and salty pretzels. Perfectly caramelly, nutty, salty and chewy. Simple and delicious.

They are terrific squares for the holidays or anytime you need a sweet and salty dessert.

HINT: Allow these to cool COMPLETELY before slicing. The filling needs time to set up. I find it is easier to slice if I put them in the refrigerator to cool.

Gluten-Free Dark Chocolate Pretzel Bark

Gluten Free Chocolate Pretzel


 
Chocolate Bark is a tasty treat that is easy to make. You can have so much fun playing with flavor additions as well as toppings. Gluten free to me means using great tasting quality ingredients and enjoying a safe treat to enjoy. It still amazes me how much gluten is put in our foods these days which really means going back to basics: baking and cooking everything ourselves.
 
Have fun with this bark.
You could add dried cranberries, gluten free peppermint candy canes, variety of nuts and other gluten free goodies.
