Touchdown Brownies

 

Football season is here and it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Every Saturday from now until the end of the year, we will be at the stadium or glued to the TV cheering on our favorite college team! It’s all about football, friends, family and food!

 

Yesterday was the first game of the season and despite the 100+ degree weather in Oklahoma, we were there to cheer on our team! It was the first game for the babies and they LOVED it!

We’re as serious about our football as we are about our brownies and no gameday tailgate would be complete without some serious brownies!

These brownies are sure to be a winner with your entire gameday crowd! They’re super fudgy and loaded with awesome players like caramel, pecans, and crunchy pretzels! If you’re a fan of the sweet and salty combo, then these brownies are for you! I knew they wouldn’t last long at our pregame get-together and I was right! No brownie was left behind as we headed to the big game!
