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!

Everyone around the Test Kitchen table really enjoyed this one. My favorite part of this recipe is the sweet savory mix.  The brownies and the chocolate were delicious when mingled with the crunchy pretzels and potato chips. Can't wait to make this sundae again! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
