I adore the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  It is a match made in heaven that never gets old.  I like salty and sweet, too.  Scratch that.  I love salty and sweet together.

Salted chocolate?  Yum and yum.

The salty in this very sweet recipe comes from the pretzels.  As if chocolate and peanut butter wasn't enough, right?  But that little salt and crunch from the pretzels goes just right with the super rich fudge and chocolate chip base.

Yup, there's a layer of chocolate chips under all of the salty pretzel peanut butter goodness.

Every flavor of this recipe was just what I wanted it to be, my only issue with it was that when cutting, the fudge layer will crumble really easily.

You have to cut these in the pan and carefully remove them so that they don't break into pieces.  If it does, don't worry.  It'll still taste amazing.  You can sprinkle your bits of fudge over ice cream!  Yes!

This is a super easy recipe to make though.  Just one pan on the stove and one pan to cool.  Aside from the chilling time, this fudge comes together in less than 10 minutes.

Can't beat that!

I'm all about quick and easy dessert recipes and this one totally fits the bill.
