Peanut Butter Pretzel Brownies - the perfect recipe for sweet and salty brownies!

Hi guys!

Can I complain about the weather?

I know, totally shocking that I’m not satisfied with the weather in Texas, right?

But y’all, all of Fort Hood has been flooded this week and it’s ruining my life. It took me an hour to find my way home the other night because all the roads to my neighborhood had rivers flowing over them or were already blocked by cops. And it was midnight and my poor babysitter was stuck at my house and all I wanted to do was eat nachos in bed while rewatching last week’s Survivor.

Ugh, Texas. Whyyyyy?!

Peanut Butter Pretzel Brownies - the perfect recipe for sweet and salty brownies!


Peanut Butter Pretzel Brownies!

needed brownies in my life the other day. I was literally having the worst day of my life. I cried on the phone with a couple people, I cried in my car, I cried sending an email. I was a mess. So, you know, brownies are generally my answer for days like that.

But why do boring brownies when you can fill them with crunchy peanut butter and top them with crushed pretzels?

You guys know that if sweet and salty is an option, I’m going for it so these are probably my most favorite brownies ever.

Make them. Hide them from the people you live with. I will not judge you.
