Master our Basic Sweet Dough recipe and with a few additional ingredients you can make Salted Caramel Pretzel Easter Buns drizzled with Caramel Sauce. A sprinkling of sea salt adds to the ultimate decadent Easter treat.
1 quantity basic sweet dough
380g jar Bonne Maman Caramel Spread (or other good quality caramel spread or dulce de leche)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp demerara sugar
1 tsp sea salt flakes
1 tbsp thickened cream
Make basic sweet dough. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
Divide dough into 16 pieces. Roll out 1 piece to a 28-30cm oval. Spread with 1½ teaspoons caramel spread, leaving a 1cm border along the long side furthest from you. Sprinkle with a little of the cinnamon. Roll up from the long side; press dough to seal. The dough should form a long log. Twist dough to form a pretzel shape; pinch ends to seal. Place on prepared tray. Repeat process with remaining dough. Set aside 10-15 minutes.
Brush pretzels with beaten egg, sprinkle with combined remaining cinnamon, demerara sugar and salt flakes. Bake 12-15 minutes or until puffed and golden.
Combine remaining caramel spread and cream in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high 20 seconds or until warmed. Drizzle pretzels with warm caramel sauce. Sprinkle with some extra sea salt flakes if desired. Serve.
