Sinful Salty & Sweet Brownies

Do you ever have days when you just want to consume your entire caloric expenditure in junk??
Oh....No, I don't either...
Ok, so not this week, but its only Tuesday.

Anyways, if we were going to be crazy and just force ourselves to indulge in quite possibly the most sinful treat ever, I was thinking this Sinful Salty & Sweet Brownie might fit the bill. I concocted it one day when I might have been having a bit of a need for junk food. It combines the very best of both salty and sweet. Hidden within this gooey caramel brownie resides the following:
1)Chocolate Covered Pretzels, 2) Mars Candy Bars (which I completely forgot existed until I was scouting out the candy isle at Walmart one day) 3)Caramello Bars (Oh how I love thee...) and  4) Potato chips (you can use the light/fat free potato chips if it makes you feel better). Its all baked in a Ghiradelli Caramel Turtle Brownie Mix. Yes, I kid you not. Its all in there. So, if you're serious and you've never wasted all your daily calories on junk food....well, my  friend, its never too late!

I cannot wait to try these this afternoon! I have to substitute almond snicker bars for Mars bars because they apparently do not sell them in Georgia anymore. We went to 5 or 6 grocery stores and gas stations during the last week looking for them- finally decided the almond snickers would have to do. I love your recipes, Thank you for sharing!!!

These look simply amazing! I really want to whip some up for my dinner guests next weekend. I am a southern gal currently living in Australia and am searching for an indulgent dessert to introduce to the natives. We do not have the caramel ghiardelli brownie mix here. Do you recommend any sort of concoction to substitute for this? Thank you kindly!
