Pretzel PB Brownie Sundae

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


At night is when I crave sweet and salty. So I started off with making brownies, and after cleaning out my pantry I came up with this yummy creation!!
Has just about everything that you would snack on if You get that sweet and salty craving like myself!!!
Looks like a lot to do, but actually its an easy semi-homemade dessert that doesn't require a lot of work or time. And its worth it!!
Would also be great for a party, just set up a brownie ice cream bar!
