For some reason we have an extraordinary amount of pretzels in our house right now. I think it may have something to do with my brother’s New Year’s rager gathering of well-behaved friends. Regardless of how the bags of pretzels appeared in our pantry, they needed to be used. I decided to make Salted Caramel Pretzel Blondies.
I have been meaning to make these for quite some time for a few reasons. One being that I have never made blondies before. Yes, I know, how can I name my blog a title pertaining to being blonde and not think to make blondies. Well, that it because there is no chocolate. It just doesn’t make sense to me to bake what is basically a brownie, but without the chocolate. However, when I found a recipe for blondies that had caramel and pretzels, I knew I had to try it out. What can I say, I am a sucker for the salty sweet combination.
After preparing the batter, folding in the pretzels, and drizzling homemade caramel sauce, the blondies were a success. The gooey caramel and crunchy pretzels provided a delightfully salty and sweet treat, just as expected.
