Gluten Free Chocolate Pretzel Fudge Bars

This INSANELY tasty bar is essentially a product of me not being able to decide what I wanted for dessert. I love the combo of sweet and salty, but I also love a nice, cakey dessert – so these Gluten Free Chocolate Pretzel Fudge Bars were born. IMG_7626

The bottom layer is a cashew butter blondie, which is gluten free and made with a few pantry staples. Cashew butter continues to steal the show for the chocolate cashew fudge layer, with crushed pretzel pieces throughout the fudge and on top. Add a dash of flaked sea salt for a final topping and you’ve got yourself one out-of-this-world, sweet yet salty yet cakey dessert.
