Sweet 'n Salty Pretzel Brownies

Every once in awhile I like to make brownies or sweets. Not too often because I'm really trying to cut back on the unnecessary things in my diet. These brownies had some good flavors to them, but ended up being way too sweet. I don't think I'll make these again, but if someone finds out how to make them taste yummy, let me know!
