My boyfriend doesn't like super sweet desserts and honestly neither do I. One day we were watching football with some friends and one guy randomly hinted that he'd like some brownies, but we had no brownie mix per say. I love experimenting to make due with what ingredients are available, and these were all things they had in the cabinet. I had made the nesquik brownies before in similar circumstances, but this time I threw in the pretzels and peanut butter. Chocolate+pretzels+peanut butter=SUPER YUMMINESS!!! It's got the ying and yang of salty and sweet, fudgy, crunchy, creamy
