Chocolate Chip Pretzel Blondies

I love traveling and visiting family, but I feel like I am always unpacking for days when we get home. We got home late yesterday afternoon and between dropping off Ella at singing class on the way back and picking up Bailey we didn’t eat dinner until 7:15. We almost forgot that the kids had school the next day and had to be getting ready for bed soon.

I spent today catching up from being gone from work for 2 days and doing laundry. Needless to say I am a bit tired and out of sorts. I have some pictures to share in the next few days of our trip.

However, I just had to share this wonderful recipe with you. Do you like salty and sweet? If you don’t then I just don’t really know what to say to you. Plus, I am too tired to argue right now so I guess you are off the hook. Maybe these will change your mind. If you do like salty and sweet, then you will adore these blondies. The pretzel flavor in a blondie is pure genius.

    I do love sweet and salty together. These brownie look totally yummy. I hope you had a great trip and a great Easter.

  2. Oh, I have got to make these for my sister! Chocolate covered pretzels are her favorite. She just discovered a new cookie this Christmas that has chocolate chips and crushed potato chips. Still have to get the recipe, though.

  3. I am not usually the biggest pretzel person, but these look great! I haven’t made blondies in awhile and this is making me crave some!

  4. I adore blondies. They just might be my favorite bar cookie/dessert. These sound great. I’m loving your new layout too! Have a great day!
