My friend asked me to make her a cake that was chocolate, salty, carmel, peanut butter & pretzel.

How would you marry these flavors? Then, do you have an y tried and true recipes? She needs it for Sunday night.

the pretzel can also cover the salty. Don't they make a peanut butter filled pretzel? If so, these could be crushed and used as a crumb topping on a chocolate cake with carmel filling/icing. Sounds like a slight variation of a Turtle Cake.

INDYDEBI - that was the direction I was headed - chocolate cake with a carmel filling and a PB buttercream or a chocolate cake with a PB filling and a carmel buttercream with crushed pretzels as the topping. I was thinking chocolate covered pretzels, hadn't heard of PB filled ones.

I would need to be careful not to introduce too many chocolate flavors or 2 different PB flavors.

When you said turtle - I'm thinking I hav an excellent cheesecake I could make her. HMMM
