Butterscotch Blondie Bars with Peanut-Pretzel Caramel

I have to say that I made this recipe because I was curious to see just how sweet these bars would be. When I saw the picture of the glistening caramel mixed with nuts and pretzels over a blondie, my mouth watered a little and my teeth started to ache. I imagined a sweet and…
