Chocolate, Caramel Pretzel Sundaes


Sorry that the blogging has been somewhat sparse these past few weeks.  Spring is a very busy time for me at work.  The kids are both in track/running club so that has also taken up some of our time.  Our load will lighten up in the next few weeks.
How do you like to "follow" blogs?  My favorite way is to be a "follower".  But, I know that isn't for everyone, so we have a subscribe link now.  Just type your e-mail in and you will receive the latest posts via e-mail.  Otherwise Young Adventures has a facebook page.  We would love it if you liked us!
Now for the good stuff.  My Mister loves pretzels covered with chocolate and caramel.  I had some leftover salted caramel from the salted caramel brownies that I made last week, and I wanted to use it up.  I also had chocolate ice cream and pretzels.  So I came up with this sundae.  Brian is quite particular about his desserts, but when I heard unusual sounds coming from his direction, I knew he liked it.  If you are the type of person that likes sweet/salty combinations then this is right up your alley.  These were so easy to make, and will be the perfect summer treat!

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Sundaes
I'm giving you general guidelines here and not exact measurements.  Feel free to experiment.

Your favorite chocolate ice cream
Caramel sauce
Crushed pretzels ( I used the short small rods)

In a sundae glass place a scoop of ice cream.  Drizzle on some caramel sauce and sprinkle with crushed pretzels.  Continue these layers until your glass is full.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy!

Weekend Plans:
 We are going to "fondue" with the kids and watch Nanny McPhee 2.
Dinner at Bar La Grassa.  This is our second time there.  Recently the chef received the James Beard award for Best Chef in our region.
Katie Missions trip training.
A somewhat quite weekend.
How about all of you?  What are you up to this weekend?  
Have a great one!
xoxo
Rachel

Anything "salty and sweet" and I am all over it!

I have never thought to put pretzels on ice cream, but I'm sure it's fabulous! I love sweet and salty:) Thanks for the great idea!

What a nice treat. I love the idea of salt with sweet and the pretzels should be wonderful with ice cream. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Oh that looks so good! My kids were wanting to go to Melting Pot tonight but we don't go there without a gift card normally...so we melted chocolate here and dipped all kinds of stuff it in. This would have made a nice dessert for our dinner of desserts ;)
