Spotlight: No Bake Bars

This is the EASIEST dessert that you can quickly throw together for a potluck, kid's birthday party, whatever you name it! It is the perfect balance of sweet and salty that you might as well call them crack bars ;) They only require a few common household ingredients, and you will have a extravegant dessert in minutes!

Step 1: Start with Graham Cracker Base. Mash up enough graham crackers to cover the bottom of a small baking dish (similar to brownie size pan). 

Step 2: Melt enough butter to cover the graham cracker so that they stick together. I start with half a stick but might need 1 to 1.5 sticks to ensure that crackers are coated 

Step 3: Add pretzel layer. Any kind of pretzels will do, but I prefer the regular size

Step 4: Pour chocolate ganache over pretzels. You can use whatever kind of chocolate syrup or Nutella, but chocolate ganache has a nice ring and will impress your guests :)

I use basic ganache recipe: 

8 ounces of semisweet chocolate

1/2 cup heavy cream 

Heat cream and chocolate in microwave safe bowl until begins to steam. Let it sit for a couple minutes and then stir until smooth

Step 5: Scoop your favorite ice cream on top of pretzels. I would recommend letting the ice cream soften a bit so it is easier to spread

Step 6: Top with more graham cracker crumbs, chocolate syrup, and more pretzels
