Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies

Brownies are some of my favorite desserts in the entire world, I mean, delicious, fudge-y, chocolate goodness, what’s not to love?  One of my favorite variations of brownies is adding caramel sauce and I decided this time around to really jazz things up by adding salted caramel pretzels and caramel sauce. The combination of the salty pretzels, sweet caramel, and rich chocolate is oh so good, you should definitely make these brownies next time you’re looking for a sweet and salty treat!

A few months ago I started a subscription to Nature Box, which is a company that sends snacks to your door every month, it’s a pretty great deal and they have lots of delicious snacks!  I got these salted caramel pretzel pops and I knew they would make a delicious addition to brownies!
