How sweet it is has posted a peanut butter pretzel brownie

I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I posted it because I could crave it one day.  Still debating :)

And from my favorite site, Picky Palate,  here are a couple posts

Caramel Popcorn
3/4 Cup brown sugar
1 stick butter or margarine
10 large marshmallows
1-2 bags unbuttered popped popcorn
1. Heat brown sugar, butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until melte. Pour over popcorn, form into balls then let cool.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Layered Krispie Treats

6 Cups rice krispie cereal
1 large bag mini marshmallows
1/4 Cup butter
2 Cups creamy peanut butter
50 mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, quartered
1 1/2 Cups melted chocolate to drizzle
1.  Place cereal into a large mixing bowl, set aside.  Place marshmallows and butter into a large bowl and microwave until puffed up, about 3 minutes.  Remove and pour into cereal, mix to combine then pour into a greased 9×13 inch baking dish and press to make even.  Melt peanut butter until nice and runny, about 45 seconds.  Pour in quartered peanut butter cups, stir gently then pour over treats.   Drizzle melted chocolate over top and refrigerate to harden.  When set, cut into squares and serve!!
16 squares

Peanut Butter Caramel Popcorn Brownies
1 box brownie mix 9×13 size
3 Cups mini marshmallows
½ stick butter
2/3 Cup corn syrup
10 oz bag peanut butter chips
4 Cups Kettle Corn popcorn, popped
½ Cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. (I lined the baking dish with foil that I sprayed with cooking spray first)
2. During the last 2 minutes of baking brownies, sprinkle marshmallows over top, bake for 2 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff. Remove from oven.
3. In a medium saucepan melt butter, corn syrup and peanut butter chips over medium heat until just melted. Pour mixture over popcorn and stir until coated. Place over marshmallow layer. In a microwave safe bowl melt chocolate chips in 30 second intervals or until melted smooth. Pour into the corner of a ziplock baggie and snip one corner. Drizzle chocolate back and forth over brownies. Let cool completely before slicing into squares!! Don’t be impatient like me!!
