Salty and sweet recipes needed- anyone make Bon Appetit Caramel Pretzel Blondies yet?

Looking for a salty and sweet bar or cookie. Any favorites?

  1. I'm going to make these in January. I think buttertart has made them and loved them. I want to add chocolate to the recipe. Initially, I thought about adding chocolate chips to the blondie part. But, after reading the recipe, I think I am going to use Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered pretzels instead of regular pretzels.

    1. Yes, buttertart definitely made these and I believe posted about them in the WHat are you baking thread.

      1. I like this basic blondie recipe ( very gooey and sweet) with salted nuts and sea salt on top. You could add pretzels or whatever too.

          i've made sk's peanut butter cookies and used chopped peanuts, crushed dark chocolate and smashed pretzels in the mix. killah good.

        2. I've been intrigued by Joy the Baker's chocolate pretzel and peanut butter brownies: http://www.joythebaker.com/blog/2010/...

          Also, these butterscotch cashew bars are exceptional. I top with a bit of extra sea salt. They're rich so I cut them into almost fudge-sized squares. http://www.bakeorbreak.com/2008/03/bu...

              Can I do these in Kitchen Aid mixer or does it have to be a food processor?

                I'm bumping this back up, maybe someone more experienced will be able to answer your question. I'm not sure what to tell you myself.
