If you are looking for a way to impress the family and friends on your next family movie night or gathering these caramel brownies with a pretzel crust is always a win in our home.  My mom used to make our brownies like this so when I had to try them with the new Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup, and they’re a WIN!

Some of my best childhood memories are made of the simple things in life like sharing these caramel brownies with a pretzel crust with my family and friends at almost every gathering I can remember as well as summer BBQ’s.  There’s nothing like biting into memories from you childhood and creating those same memories for my children.

Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup is made with only five ingredients, contains no artificial colors and flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, and it’s made from non-GMO ingredients. It’s the perfect way to sweeten up your family traditions.

Some of the best moments in life are the simple ones so just squeeze some Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup and start building those special memories with your children over a Caramel Brownie with Pretzel Crust, a bowl of ice cream or a simple glass of milk and make that special moment feel extra special!

Sometimes, even the process of enjoying the little things in life tends to get a bit complicated. It shouldn’t require an extensive complicated commitment. In honor of the new and simple Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup and the sweet and simple memories that it inspires, Hershey’s wants you to share the sweetness in everyday moments. So take a moment to “stop and smell the chocolate” and share your #Simply5 – which is a five-word recount of what makes your day sweet.   An example would be “Sharing chocolate milk over homework” #Simply5! Don’t forget to add the #Simply5 hashtag so we can read what makes you day sweet!

What’s my #Simply5?  I would have to say “Family time with chocolate milk” #Simply5.

You can currently grab Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup in the 21.8-ounce bottles at mass and grocery retailers and the 48-ounce bottle from Costco. Learn more about Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup by visiting Hersheys.com.  Don’t forget to be social and check them out on Twitter and Facebook.
