Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 cups chocolate hazelnut spread such as Nutella
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnut liqueur such as Frangelico (optional)
  • 2 cups quick-cooking (not instant) rolled oats
  • 2 cups broken pretzel pieces
  • 1/2 cup sliced dried apricot
  • 1/2 cup chopped unsalted roasted hazelnut
  • 85 g semisweet chocolate melted
  • 40 small pretzel twists

Method

In saucepan, bring butter, milk, sugar and salt to boil over medium heat. Remove from heat; whisk in chocolate hazelnut spread and vanilla until smooth. Whisk in hazelnut liqueur (if using).

In bowl, combine oats, pretzel pieces, apricots and hazelnuts. Add to butter mixture; stir until well combined. Drop by rounded 1 tbsp onto waxed paper–lined baking sheets, pressing lightly to flatten. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Dip half of 1 pretzel twist into melted chocolate and place over top of 1 cluster; repeat with remaining pretzels. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.)
