Yum Yum: Pretzel Brownies

Sweet and salty is a great combination.  I had this pinned for quite some time and decided it was time to make it.  In my picture, you can't really see the pretzel crust but it was there and added a wonderful salty crust to the typical brownie.
Brownies with Pretzel Crust
What you need:
  • Your Favorite Brownie Box Mix and all the ingredients the box calls for
  • Your favorite mix-ins – chocolate chips, carmel balls, peanut butter chips, nuts, candy…etc.
  • 3 cups crushed pretzels (My suggestion: use about 2 1/4 cups of crushed Butter Prezels!)
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 5 tbsp sugar
Step 1 (the pretzel crust):
Crush the pretzels in a food processor or however you like to crush pretzels. I recommend using only about 2 1/4 cups of crushed butter pretzels (you find them next to the regular preztels and they are literally called “butter pretzels”) for the recipe. I also recommend not crushing the pretzels to dust but keep some small pieces to keep the crust crunchy. Mix the melted butter (melt in microwave), sugar and pretzel crumbs. Press into lightly greased pan. I would suggest using a smaller pan than a 13×9 (I like using a 9×9) because it makes for the yummiest brownie to pretzel crust ratio. Set aside pretzel crust and make the brownie batter.
Step 2 (the brownies):
Make the brownies according to the box. Add in whatever yummy extras you would like! Spread the brownie batter over the pretzel crust. Bake the brownies according to the package. Try not to overcook. It’s better for the brownies to be a little undercooked than overcooked! Let them cool (a little!) and dig in! Add a scoop of ice cream to the warm brownie and it will be your new BFF too! So good!
