Best Brownie Recipe For The Holidays – White Chocolate Pretzel Brownies

Are you looking for the best brownie recipe to make for your family? I have to admit that I am somewhat of a purist. Typically, I like my brownies as plain as can be. This is not a joke. I don’t even need a drizzle of chocolate syrup on them. As long as they are gooey and warm, I am one happy camper. But my children are different animals. They like it when we fill our brownie batter up with all types of goodness. And who can blame them?! I guess every person has their own version of the best brownie recipe, right? LOL! Hopefully, this White Chocolate Pretzel holiday treat will make your top three. 😉 Best Brownie Recipe For The Holidays - White Chocolate Pretzel Brownies

Before we get started with the ingredients list, I do want to say that if you are missing pretzels and want to substitute with something else salty, go right ahead! Mix and match and use what you have in your pantry. Have a little fun when coming up with your brownie design. And if you have little ones, get them involved. This is the type of dessert that small hands would absolutely LOVE to create. My daughter is 13 and she LOVES making desserts like this one.

Aren’t these so fun to display? I just love the way they play on green and red for Christmas. These brownies would make a great holiday hostess gift or even a fun treat for your child to bring to school (if they still allow sweet treats in the classroom). The best brownie recipe is one that is easy to make and fun to eat and I think that we hit both marks with this post. Don’t you? Nothing beats a treat that is both salty and sweet at the same time! Yum and yum.
