Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies


J will be the first to tell you that I’m incapable of exercising moderation, particularly when it comes to good eats.  I’m an all or nothing kind of gal.  Case in point?  These 3 layer brownies.  Homemade salted caramel sauce {a recipe that only takes 3 minutes, by the way} gets generously oozed over the salty bite of crunchy pretzels with a base of rich, dark chocolate brownies.
