This recipe and picture was in todays Sun. paper.6/10/12. "Carmel Brownie Cake" a Smuckers, Crisco & Pillsbury advertisement,recipe. I have added my twist to it. Instead of peanuts(some people are allergic to them) . I substuted crushed salty pretzels... Salt and chocolate just seem to go together..for a taste bud explosion! I also changed the marachino cherry for a candied . I hope you like my version.
