While doing research on the island of Marathon in the Florida Keys for my Vacationplanit website, I came across a brownie recipe that was featured in the Marathon Garden Club’s newsletter.

It looked absolutely scrumptious and I couldn’t wait to get home to try it out. And the perfect occasion arrived with some friends that were visiting for the weekend.

To say it was easy is an understatement. You start with a sweetened pretzel crust that is baked until it’s nice and crunchy.

And the best part, top it with a mixture of chocolate and peanut butter. Oh, I’m drooling just thinking about it!

It was absolutely the best brownie combination, with its salty and sweet, that I ever had! It got rave reviews from our company and when my husband brought the rest into work (so I wouldn’t blow my diet completely) they thought it was so good that I had a host of volunteers to taste test whatever I made  in the future. Seems like a pretty good recommendation for this rich and indulgent brownie dessert.
