Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dutch process cocoa powder
  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 eggs plus 1 yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate baking chips
  • 1/2 cup pretzels, roughly chopped (you can also use chocolate covered pretzels if you want to take it up a notch)

for the chocolate covered pretzel topping

  • 1/2 cup pretzels
  • 4 ounces chocolate, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Remove from microwave, stir in sugar, and melt both for 30 seconds. Stir again and melt for 60 seconds more. You want the sugar and butter to bubble up slightly, but not burn. This amount of time should do the trick.
  2. Remove mixture from microwave and stir in the chopped bittersweet chocolate. This should melt the chocolate completely. If it doesn’t, put it in the microwave for another 15 seconds. Whisk in all other ingredients except chocolate chips. Gently fold in chocolate covered pretzel pieces and chocolate chips.
  3. Pour batter into a parchment lined 8″x8″ pan.Bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool before topping.
  4. Once the brownies are cool, lay a mostly flat layer of pretzels on top. Pour the melted chocolate over the pretzels, getting it into all the nooks and crannies. This will help the pretzels adhere to the brownies.
  5. Put the brownies in the freezer for 10 minutes to set before slicing into 16 pieces with a sharp serrated knife. Enjoy!
