This looks and sounds so good! It also sounds pretty easy to make. I think my nephew would love these as well and it is his birthday soon so I think I will have to whip up a batch of these for his party, lets hope he likes them as much as I think he will)

Looks like a pile of crap, just like our president.

These gooey bars are so irresistible. For me they're perfect to eat after a heavy, fatty meal, in other words as dessert. So this is also a favorite dessert of the US President. So he has a sweet tooth like me. Interesting!

OMG this Billion Dollar Gooey Bars recipe is absolutely decadent. What makes it worse is how easy it is to make, and how simple the ingredients are. There is nothing stopping you from whipping these up at any time. The little salty taste from the pretzels definitely puts this recipe over the top. I love this recipe, even if my diet doesn't.

Error in step #5, altho I think most can figure it out.

wow, this is a sweet gooey recipe. As much as I like ice cream, I do prefer vanilla, so I will swap out the chocolate and put in vanilla ice cream instead. This will be amazing, with ice cream, cookie dough, pretzels, and caramel. I love ice cream with caramel topping! This will be one of those recipes where sweet meets salty and tastes GOOD!

The video shows how incredibly simple this is to make. I have some friends who love chocolate covered pretzels and this would be a great thing to make the next time they come over. I might also sprinkle some chopped peanuts on top as well as the pretzel bits. Kroger has a wonderful chocolate ice cream called Death by Chocolate, and that would be great to use in this.

Hmmm...this is different. Anything with pretzels in my mind has to be good, but ice cream? Perhaps to prevent having to refrigerate often, the ice cream can be left out and once the cookies are made the caramel and pretzels can be added...then dipped in melted chocolate instead. It's a great concept but maybe a tad too messy for me.
