Who doesn’t love a sweet and salty treat? I recently had a pretzel topped with a melted rolo and a pecan. It inspired me. Salt, chocolate, and carmel…what an amazing combination.
My baking creativity brought about these caramel brownies. The pretzel crust is made up of ground up pretzels and butter, which I baked to help set. While the crust was cooling I decided to whip up the brownie batter. Unfortunately, the incorporation of the rolos was something I would change (and what I am writing into the recipe). This time just I placed the rolo into the already spread out brownie batter in the pan. However, next time I plan to cut the rolos in half and mix into the brownie prepared mix. Then the carmel bits will be even more distributed.
Take a break from the Christmas rush and have yourself something both sweet & salty!

Prepare brownie batter as directed. Cut rolos in half. Mix rolos into brownie batter and spread evenly in the pan.
