And so now you're like, okay, they sound annoying, but how did it all taste? Jury's still out on that - the crust didn't come out like I wanted due to my inability to properly crush pretzels; I accidentally forgot half the butter in the caramel so it still tasted great but didn't quite cover the entire crust, resulting in me having to mix the caramel and pretzels into one layer, and then I threw more chocolate chips on top than I probably should have because they were needed to hold the whole thing together. I still have high hopes for the pretzels as a saltine substitute, I just need to work out the details.
My inadequately crushed pretzels. I need to buy a new rolling pin.
My inadequate food processor.
The "crust". In theory I like the idea of the pretzel chunks, but it makes the whole thing not stay together very well.

I did half just chocolate chips, half chocolate and peanut butter chips.
The chips don't spread as easily on the uneven crust.
