When I originally had this sweet and salty combination in my head, I couldn’t decide if I should make granola bars or blondies. I settled on granola bars, because I wanted to have something somewhat healthy to snack on in the house.
However, as soon as I tasted the chocolate caramel pretzel granola bars, I knew that I had to use this combination in blondies.
Plus, I discovered that I only have a few other blondies recipe on here! That had to change!
Since I had half open bags of chocolate chips and caramel bits sitting in my cupboard waiting to be used, it didn’t take long for these salted chocolate caramel pretzel blondies to come into existence.
The rich blondie base is stuffed with chocolate chips, caramel bits, and crushed pretzels!
To top it off, the blondies are sprinkled with sea salt right before baking. The result? Addicting blondies that may last a day in your house, if you’re lucky.
I strongly recommend making a double batch!
