Rustic Munch Mix
Author: Betsy Cohen
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 3 hours 30 mins
Total time: 3 hours 50 mins
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 cups potato chips, broken into pieces
  • 4 cups pretzels, broken into pieces
  • 3 cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, melted
  1. Remove the paper from the sweetened condensed milk can. Poke two holes into the top of the can. Place the can in a pot. Fill the pot, nearly to the top of the can, with water. Remove the can and bring the water to a boil. Carefully place the can into the water, turn the water down and simmer for 3½ hours. Check the water level periodically and add more simmering water to the pot so that the level remains fairly constant.
  2. After 3½ hours turn the stove off and cool completely.
  3. Once cool, remove the lid and thoroughly stir the mixture until you have a gorgeous milky caramel sauce.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  5. Mix the potato chips and pretzels in a very large mixing bowl. Add the cooked sweetened condensed milk and melted chocolate. Mix the ingredients together so that the chips and pretzels are evenly coated.
  6. Transfer to the prepared pan and freeze until the mix is set. Break into pieces and enjoy.
  7. Store in the freezer.
Additional time is needed for the sweetened condensed milk to cool.
