Brownies With Caramel And Pretzels

Jump to Recipe

There are some delicious and decadent brownies on my blog and youtube but I think that these brownies with caramel and pretzels take the prize!

These are the MOST decadent brownies with pretzels and are completely irresistible! And SO cute!

For the caramel topping for these caramel pretzel brownies you can choose how dark of a caramel you want. I chose pretty light version. If you want darker caramel and with deeper flavor just cook the caramel for longer.

And for the salt for these salted caramel brownies with pretzels you can use regular salt too. But coarse sea salt look almost like sparkly diamonds and is perfect for the festive occasions!

I call this one also easy holiday desserts with cream. There are a few steps to this brownie, but they are easy and everything gets done pretty fast, at least in my opinion.

You can serve these easy new years desserts with cream in bigger, regular size brownie pieces. But I think that cutting them into these smaller pretzel size pieces is so cute. And it makes for perfect bite size brownies!

And the brownies will stay as fudgy even the next day. Just take these easy festive desserts with cream out of the fridge for at least 1 hour before cutting.
