Salty and sweet, crunchy and fudgy; These one-bowl Salted Nutella Pretzel Brownies are a flavor party in your mouth!
Ingredients
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, chopped
  • 2 ounces Dark or Semisweet Chocolate, chopped
  • ½ cup All-Purpose Flour OR Better Batter Gluten Free Flour
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 cup Nutella, divided use
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Broken Pretzel Pieces, divided
  • Sea Salt
Instructions
  1. Prepare a 9x9-inch square baking pan by lining with foil, leaving some overhang on the ends. Spray with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  3. In a large microwave safe mixing bowl, melt chopped Butter and Chocolate; about 30-60 seconds in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.
  4. Add ¾ cup Nutella and Sugar to the bowl of melted chocolate. Using an electric handheld mixer, beat on medium/high speed until well combined. Add Eggs and Vanilla, and continue to beat well until combined, about 1 minute more.
  5. Using a large spoon, stir in flour and salt. Fold in ¾ cup of the broken Pretzels.
  6. Pour mixture into the prepared baking pan, and spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining pretzel pieces over the top of the brownie batter.
  7. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt remaining ¼ cup Nutella for about 30-60 seconds, or until thin and easy to stir. Drizzle Nutella over the brownies (I used a Wilton squeeze bottle). Sprinkle with Sea Salt.
  8. Bake for about 45-49 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs attached.
  9. Cool before cutting (about 1 hour).
  10. Makes 16-20 brownies.
  11. Brownies stay fresh in a tightly sealed container for up to 5 days.
  12. Brownies freeze well in a freezer ziplock bag for up to 3 months.
