Did you know?! Today is National Chocolate Chip Day! And, yes, we're celebrating with Caramel Chocolate Brownies with Sprinkle Pretzels. There are a lot of amazing (and some very silly!) food holidays each month. We're all for them, as long as they are celebrating something sweet. What's better than a day dedicated to a particular dessert, confection or snack?! We strongly believe that on a food holiday you can indulge in that special treat...without regret! In honor of National Chocolate Chip Day today, we are sharing a decadent, delicious Caramel Chocolate Brownie recipe incorporating Fatty Sundays sprinkle pretzels, and lots and lots of white chocolate chips! These brownies are everything you've ever wanted in a brownie, and more. They are gooey, fudge-y, super sweet and tasty. They are sprinkled and baked with Fatty Sundays chocolate covered pretzel bits which add a layer of crunch and loads of color. They are a great way to add something special to the classic brownie or blondie dessert that everyone knows and loves.
These brownies are great to bring to a party for dessert, or bake at home on a rainy day. They can be cut up into squares as small or big as you'd like, so they are perfect for sharing with friends, family and co-workers. We promise you that kids and adults alike will enjoy these brownies decorated with chocolate covered pretzels and white chocolate chips. We recommend eating them with an ice cold glass of milk. So... what are you waiting for?! Happy baking!
