Salted Pretzel Caramel Brownies

Sweet, salty and chocolate-y are an amazing combination. That’s why I love these Salted Pretzel Caramel Brownies. They are super easy to make and satisfies all your salty and sweet needs. You can make your own homemade brownies, but when I’m in a hurry, I use the box. You can make your own homemade caramel, but again, when I’m in a hurry (which is 95% of the time) I use a jar. Don’t judge. ūüôā

Two weekends ago, I needed to bring a dessert to the neighbor’s house for an impromptu get-together and didn’t have much time. In between taking the kids to the pool, making them lunch, running to the grocery store and breaking up fights, I was able to whip these bad boys up. They were a big hit.

You can layer the mini pretzels like I did with this recipe (I had 4th of July pretzels left over) or you can crush the pretzels into pieces and make that your center pretzel layer. It’s up to you but crushed pretzels will make it easier to cut. I had to use one of those big, sharp butcher knives (you know the biggest one in the knife block!) to cut these.
