It was 8:45 at night and two days before I was scheduled to leave on vacation, I should have probably been crossing other things off my ever growing to-do list. But I didn’t…I made brownies. That’s totally normal, right? This is my go to brownie recipe and works great for kitchen sink ideas like these potato chip brownies. I found it on Recipe Girl’s blog a while ago, and besides being super easy and almost a one pan mix, it tastes freaky brownie gooey good! This was a total raid the cupboard and see what I can add type of recipe. It already has a lot of chocolate in it so adding more chocolate chips didn’t rock my boat. I found some pretzels and then some salted caramel candies, score! I was on the last base and just had to add everything together. In fifteen minutes I had a pan of brownies making a run for the oven, and ten of those minutes were probably spent rummaging in my god-awful pantry, Is yours as disorganized as mine? Please tell me it is. The brownies turned out good for being made so lackadaisical and spur of the moment but I’d rather use pretzel sticks next time instead of pretzel crisps. Don’t worry too much about how your caramel gets divided up, I just pulled them apart and randomly dropped blobs of it all over the surface and through the mix. This recipe is so foolproof it’s almost impossible to screw up, trust me.
