Caramel Pretzel Brownies Recipe

Caramel Pretzel Brownies Recipe
 

When it comes to whipping up a quick and yummy dessert I love boxed brownies in a pinch. I am not ashamed to admit that fact. However, I love to adorn them with extras to make them look like more than a box mix. Even if you just add some chocolate frosting it says a little extra to disguise my laziness. I use them so often I dedicated a whole post to 20 Easy Dessert Recipes using A Boxed Brownie Mix. I usually have all the ingredients to make this Ultimate Caramel Pretzel Brownies dessert in the fall when I make caramel apples, so I had to run out to get caramel but it is well worth it. Excuse the disposable tin I used for these ultimate Caramel Pretzel brownies as I was sending them to school for teacher appreciation week.

Caramel Pretzel Brownie Recipe

This recipe reminds me of a caramel and chocolate covered pretzels. This had to be the most unique brownie topping I have tasted but I will make this again adding all sorts of goodies like M & M’s and left over Halloween candy in the fall. It already has chocolate chips, pretzels, caramel and toffee bits to make this one special brownie mix.

Make your favorite brownie mix in a 9×13 pan but be sure to add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the mix. Allow them to cool completely then you can make the topping.

Pour on the caramel sauce evenly over the cooled brownies.

The next day everything cooled down and they were ready to cut. I suggest using a serrated knife to cut thru all the pretzels.
