How To Prepare Pretzel Peanut Popcorn Brownies

Once you whip up your brownie mix, top the brownie batter with Rold Gold tiny twists.

Also top with lightly salted, roasted peanuts. Bake, remove from oven and let cool completely. Once brownies have cooled, cut into squares, top each brownie with a few pieces of popped buttered popcorn then drizzle with melted chocolate. Let chocolate set up for a few minutes and serve.

We took our brownies outside with some friends and set up a Summer picnic party. What a joy seeing my boys’ faces when they saw what we were doing. Something so simple and sweet made such a memorable moment with family and friends. I have a feeling we’ll be doing many more picnic parties this Summer!

Tips For Pretzel Peanut Popcorn Brownies

*Add your favorite chocolate chips for an added variety to the sweet and salty combo.

*Store any leftover brownies in an airtight container for up to 3 days room temperature. I would remove popcorn from each brownie square after day 1. Tends to get soggy.
