2 cups walnuts (8oz.)
1 cup peanut butter-flavored pieces
1 cup milk chocolate pieces
1 cup packed brown sugar
cup light-colored corn syrup
cup butter
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
tsp. vanilla
25 pretzel rods
or one 14-oz. pkg. whole Bavarian pretzels

In a food processor combine walnuts, peanut butter pieces and milk chocolate pieces.
Cover and process until mixture is coarsely chopped (or coarsely chop nuts, peanut butter and chocolate pieces with a knife and combine). Transfer to a large bowl; set aside.
In a small heavy saucepan combine brown sugar, corn syrup and butter. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Return to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low. Clip a candy thermometer to side of pan. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 236F; soft ball stage (should take about 10 minutes). Adjust heat as necessary to maintain a steady boil. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Dip each pretzel into caramel mixture, covering about two-thirds of the pretzel. Let caramel drip off slightly. Spoon or roll some of the chopped mixture onto the caramel on the pretzel, pressing crumbs lightly with the back of a spoon. Let stand on a nonstick foil until caramel is set. Store in an airtight container between layers of wax paper in refrigerator for up to 4 days or freeze up to 1 month.
Makes 25 pretzel rods or 15 whole Bavarian pretzels.

We found this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens. I have made them up and sold them at Lindsay's Ticktocker's fund raiser. Frankly my dear, these are delicious!
