This is a sweet chocolately salty caramely treat that will make you go yum. The salt from the pretzel crust and the sweet caramel layer are just the perfect addition to the brownie.

This brownie seems a little denser that most brownies and is more fudgey.

Three wonderful flavors all piled into one tasty treat.

This recipe is a little labor intensive but well worth the results.

Making it the night before and letting it set in the fridge is what I recommend.

Enjoy

How to Make Pretzel Crust Fudge Brownie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with foil and spray lightly with a baking spray.
  2. For the crust melt the butter and either in a blender or food processor pulse the pretzels until they are like a sand texture. Combine the pretzels, sugar and melted butter, it will be crumbly.
  3. Pat the mixture into the foil lined pan.
  4. In a sauce pan or microwave melt the milk and carmels until smooth. Pour over the pretzel layer.
    Set the pan in to the fridge while you prepare the brownies.
  5. Melt the butter and chocolate chips in the microwave or in a double boiler. Stir until smooth. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat in the eggs one at a time. Add the flour and stir for about a minute until the batter becomes smooth and glossy(for about 1 minute).
  6. The batter will be thick but spoon it out and spread over the caramel which has cooled in the fridge.
  7. Bake for about thirty minutes until the middle is almost set.
  8. Very important refrigerate for one hour so that the caramel sets up or it will burn your mouth. Best if eaten the next day.

    Take the foil out of the pan after they have set up and cut into squares.
