Mama Mia - how about these for a hump day treat?
I remember the first time I tried a buttery, salty pretzel crust underneath a dessert. Oh gee, it must have been over a decade ago. I admit, at first I was skeptical, but from the first bite, I was hooked. The saltiness from the pretzels adds something amazing to sweet, rich desserts, and you can use this easy crust to dress up so many different sweets.
I used Pretzel Crisps for both the crust and to top these brownies. I like 'em because they are flatter and crispier than a typical pretzel, so biting through the crust and topper is super easy. They also show up really well on the top and make a cute decoration!
This version of these brownies uses a homemade brownie recipe, and also a made-from-scratch caramel. If you're in a pinch and need to whip something together more quickly, you can absolutely use your favorite brownie mix and pre-made caramel sauce. If you can't find Pretzel Crisps (check the deli section of your grocery store - that's where they are at my local grocer!) then regular pretzels will absolutely work as well!
These brownies are an excellent reason to try our homemade caramel sauce that we shared earlier this week - you will only need to make half of a recipe to cover your brownies, but there are many uses for caramel, so don't be afraid to whip up the whole batch and experiment!Print
