Chocolate Salted Caramel Pretzel Pancakes

22 Apr

Long name, but so deserving.

For the last week of the pancake challenge I’ve been telling you all about, the category was chocolate pancakes. After seeing caramel extract and pretzels in my pantry..I knew what needed to be created.

See, I love sweet and salty combinations. It’s always been my favorite. Like those pretzel M&M’s..mmmm!

So this week, I decided to come up with something so unique, in hopes of winning that contest finally on the last week. Unfortunately, yet again, I didn’t. But if it wasn’t just based off looks and off of actual taste, I’m sure I would have in a heartbeat!:)

This whole pancake challenge has been so fun for me. Every week it’s given me a goal to come up with such a unique, healthy recipe. Even though I didn’t win, I have loved every minute of it..and can’t wait for another challenge to arise…I’m competitive if you haven’t already established that :)

But here is my nonwinning, delicious pancake recipe for those of you like me who love that sweet and salty combo!
