Gooey Chewy Pretzel Bars

Gooey Chewy Pretzel Bars #sweetandsalty #cakemix #brownierecipe

I have a thing for salty and sweet treats.
Have you ever been eating chips and salsa, for instance, and then you suddenly have to have something sweet?
I know you have.
So you eat a bowl of ice cream and feel satisfied, right?
All that sweetness leaves you wanting a little salt again.
It’s a serious problem. #onlyinAmerica

You can rest easy now though because I have come up with a solution.
Gooey Chewy Pretzel Bars.  Chocolaty, salty, marshmallowy, crunchy sweetness to the rescue!
Yes. That just happened.
