Salty and sweet are at opposite ends of the flavor spectrum yet, they marry beautifully in this Pretzel Avalanche Fudge. A simple combination of melted chocolate, soft mini marshmallows and twisted pretzels transform into a delightful fusion of flavors that will satisfy sweet and salty fans alike.
Pretzel Avalanche Fudge
This yummy recipe is from Mary Younkin's newest cookbook entitled The Weeknight Dessert Cookbook. Mary and I have been friends for some time, since we both started on our online food journey. Mary is the creator of Barefeet In The Kitchen and you may have seen some of her recipes shared on my Facebook Brand page, as well. It's not often that I have the opportunity to feature other cooks on my website but, I was delighted when she asked me to review her latest cookbook. This book is filled with simple sweet sensations that can be put together in a snap any night of the week.
Cookies and Cakes and Fudge Oh My
This book offers ample opportunity to get the entire family involved, and many of the recipes are kid-friendly, too. I love that she uses ingredients that are readily available in most grocery stores. This book is filled from cover to cover with made-from-scratch desserts that can be put together with just 5-15 minutes of prep time. In it, you'll find cakes, cookies, homemade puddings, fruit crisps, easy ice cream and more. She's included an entire section of no-bake sweets and that's where I found the recipe for this pretzel avalanche fudge that I chose to share with you. It's a delightfully simple fudge that doesn't require a candy thermometer, giving it universal appeal.
