Step 1

In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and butter. Bring just to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue boiling, without stirring, at a moderate-steady rate for 4 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in milk.

Return to heat. Reduce to medium-low. Cook and stir until a candy thermometer reads 245°F (firm-ball stage). Keep warm.

Pour 2 cups caramel mixture into a 2 cup glass measuring cup. Quickly dip each pretzel halfway into caramel. Allow excess to drip off. Place on well-buttered baking sheets; let stand until hardened.

In a microwave, melt white candy coating. Stir until smooth. Dip half of the caramel-coated pretzels into coating. Reserve leftover candy coating.

Melt milk chocolate coating in microwave. Dip remaining pretzels.

Drizzle white-coated pretzels with remaining milk chocolate coating. Drizzle milk chocolate-coated pretzels with remaining white candy coating. Sprinkle with walnuts if desired.

Store in an airtight container.
