Brownies with Pretzels and Caramel (Because why not?)

Recipe: Gooey chocolate brownies with pretzels sprinkled on top and drizzled with homemade caramel sauce.

For a number of reasons, I am not looking forward to tomorrow. Now, Thursday I leave for a long-awaited trip to California and I am GREATLY looking forward to that. But tomorrow? Well, I could do without tomorrow. And so tonight, in an effort to make tomorrow a little better, I bake. And what do I bake, you ask? I bake the ultimate gooey, sweet and salty, delicious concoction I could think of – fudgy brownies topped with crushed pretzels and then drizzled with homemade caramel sauce.

Peanut butter cream cheese brownies (Yes, it’s another PB/chocolate recipe. What of it.)

Recipe: A basic brownie recipe with peanut butter cream cheese swirled throughout.

So yes, it’s another peanut butter/chocolate combo baking weekend for me. Don’t know what it is – just can’t get enough PB/chocolate recently. I wasn’t actually sure what to make tonight but knew I wanted to make something with basic ingredients I usually have on hand (mostly because it’s cold here and I have no desire to hike over to the grocery store). So I settled on brownies. But I didn’t want to do your standard run-of-the-mill brownies. I found a recipe for cream cheese brownies but that didn’t seem all that interesting so I decided to jazz it up with some good ol’ PB. Look at me experimenting with recipes! I’m excited about this… hopefully it turns out well so that my co-workers don’t become wary of my experiments…
