Caramel Pretzel Brownies Recipe
 

When it comes to whipping up a quick and yummy dessert I love boxed brownies in a pinch to make things like these Caramel Pretzel Brownies Recipe. 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.

Can I Make Brownie Mix Ahead of Time?

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