Updated July 12, 2016

Nothing hits the spot like a sweet and salty treat. If you've ever dropped a few pieces of chocolate candy into your popcorn at the movies, you know just what we mean. Check out these easy dessert recipes that best utliize this classic salty-sweet combination.

Strawberry Pretzel Bars

What a super dessert that's great for home entertaining or as a bring-along! Our salty yet sweet, light yet creamy recipe for Strawberry Pretzel Bars will stand out from the rest.

Sweet and Salty Cookies

For some reason we crave the taste of snacks that are at the same time both sweet and salty, so here's a combination of sugar cookies and pretzels that your taste buds will fall in love with.

Peanut Butter Mousse Cake

This heavenly tasting, easy-to-make dessert is a contrast of favorite tastes: creamy peanut butter and crunchy peanuts in a chocolate cookie crust! What a way to celebrate our love for the pairing of sweet and salty! Bet you'll get rave reviews when you pull out this one!

Potato Chip Fudge

If you've got a weakness for snack foods like potato chips and pretzels, then you're going to love our Potato Chip Fudge. This creamy and rich fudge tastes like those expensive, chocolate-dipped pretzels and chips you see in the fancy candy stores.

Lime Margarita Bars

Traditional margaritas are made in glasses with salted rims. These cooling Lime Margarita Bars are made with salted pretzels, so you get that salty taste in every bite. (And you don't sip these, so you don't need straws!)

Potato Chip Cookies

We bet you won't be able to resist reaching for one of these melts-in-your-mouth Potato Chip Cookies. These buttery potato chip cookies have a slightly sweet and slightly salty taste that make them an absolute favorite!

Sweet n Salty Raspberry Bars

If you like the sweet 'n' salty combo, you're gonna love this recipe from our diabetic website: Sweet 'n' Salty Raspberry Bars! We think the flavor-packed taste of raspberry gelatin pairs perfectly with the saltiness of the pretzels. You won't even be able to tell it's made with lighter ingredients!

Ice Cream Pretzel Squares

Ice cream is one of our favorite summertime treats, and in this recipe for Ice Cream Pretzel Squares we've used it to make a perfect sweet and salty dessert that's 100% shareable. The best part is, you can use any flavor ice cream to change it up, so you can enjoy different variations all through the summer!

Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Bars

We know you, and all of your friends, are going to love this recipe for Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel Bars, 'cause every bite of this cookie bar is full of chewy, chocolatey goodness. The sea salt just adds another sprinkle of great flavor to 'em!

Chocolate Bacon and Sea Salt Cupcakes
