Step 2: Melt the Caramel
Next, unwrap the caramel candies and cut them in half. Place one-half of a caramel candy on top of each pretzel.
After, pop the tray in the oven to bake for 3-5 minutes. When the time is up, the caramel won’t be fully melted, but thats okay.

If using the microwave, melt gently in 30-second increments.
