INGREDIENTS

PRETZEL CRUST

1/2 cup pretzels

1/3 cup brown sugar

3 Tbsp. butter melted

 

BROWNIES

1/2 cup butter softened

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

3/4 tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup Nutella

1/4 cup cocoa

2/3 cup flour

1/4 tsp. salt

 

extra Nutella to frost brownies

extra pretzels for garnishing

INSTRUCTIONS

 

To make the crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. Place the pretzels in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until broken up into tiny pieces. Add the sugar and pulse until combined, then pour in the butter. Continue pulsing until combined. Press the pretzel mixture firmly into the prepared pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the edges are golden and the crust feels firm. While the crust is baking, make the brownies: Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and blend well. Add vanilla, salt, and Nutella. Mix until combined. Add cocoa and flour. Don’t overbeat. Pour into pan over pretzel crust and bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow brownies to cool for at least 45 minutes before frosting with nutella spread and garnishing with pretzels.

  1. Wonderful idea! I will have to try this, but use peanut butter instead of nutella. It might be a few weeks because I just baked a lot of stuff today:( Can’t wait to try this recipe of yours:)
