Treat Tuesday #8...

Treat Tuesday - Salted Pretzel Caramel Brownies

*This is a new recipe to our family that came to us via Facebook.

*We tried it and fell in love with it.  So delicious.

*My wife and I are going to make a batch to send down to our daughter who is at the University of Lincoln.  

*1 box Betty Crocker fudge brownies (for 9 x 13 pan)
*2 eggs
*1/4 cup water

*2/3 cup vegetable oil
*3 cups pretzels
*1 jar caramel sauce
*Coarse sea salt

-Preheat over to 350 degrees. 
-Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, or grease with cooking spray.
-Prepare brownie batter according to package instructions.
-Pour about 1/3 of the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan.
- Spread until the bottom of the pan is evenly coated.
- Then add two even layers of pretzels, covering the entire surface.
- Carefully spoon the remaining brownie batter on top to cover the pretzels.  
-Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the brownies comes out clean.
-Remove and set on a cooling rack to cool.
-Spoon the caramel sauce onto the top of the brownies in an even layer. 
-(If it is too thick, spoon the sauce into a small bowl first and microwave for 30 seconds to thin.)
-Sprinkle the caramel with a few pinches of sea salt.
-Serve warm, or let cool to room temperature, then serve!  ENJOY... 

Treat Tuesday - Middle Grade Book

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

*I am currently reading Gaiman's new adult novel which made me remember his middle-grade novel that we did for our book club several years ago. 

 Treat Tuesday - Adult Book 
Eddie's Bastard by William Kowalski

*This is truly a "treat" book that you must give yourself.  One of my all-time favorite adult books.
