Recipe: Peanut Butter Brownies With Pretzels And Sea Salt

I’m doing my good deed of the year by sharing this downright heavenly recipe with you all today. This may just be the best thing I’ve ever made. When my husband tried them, I swear to you his eyes rolled back in his head and he almost fainted. They are THAT good. I made these recently for a family get together along with a bunch of other treats and these were the first to go. The combo of the chocolate and peanut butter is so good, the pretzels give it a good crunchy kick, and don’t get me started on the sea salt- the best!

-Take pretzel sticks and layer them on top in whatever pattern makes you happy. Just remember that you’re going to have to cut these babies up so try to arrange the pretzels in a way that will make it easy for you to cut squares out of them.

-Make sure to sprinkle ground sea salt on top of the mix! This part totally makes the brownies!

-Bake them in a 325 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.

-Let them cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting them and enjoying!

These really are one of the best things I’ve ever made! I hope everyone who reads this will try this recipe and fall in love with them like I have! Your mouth and stomach will thank you!
