Pretzel brownies

If you love the sweet/salty thing that is so popular right now then you will love these!

The crunchy, salty pretzels are a great contrast to the otherwise gooey, sticky brownies! Strangely I had many volunteers come forward to test this one!!


Makes 12 Brownies Approx 15p each

Prep time 10 minutes Cooking time 20 minutes





110g unsalted butter, melted

200g caster sugar

2 eggs

60g self raising flour

30g cocoa powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

60g salted pretzels, chopped



Preheat the oven to 180C/Fan 170/Gas 4

Grease a 20cmx20cm baking tin & line with parchment paper.

Melt the butter gently in a small saucepan. Set aside to cool a little.

Place the pretzels into a sealable plastic bag & bash with a rolling pin until they are broken up, don't worry if they are different size pieces, it all adds to the texture!

Beat the butter & sugar together in a mixing bowl, add the eggs & mix well.

In another bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder & salt & stir it into the sugar mixture. 

Add the vanilla & stir in the pretzels.

Pour the mixture into your prepared tin & place whole pretzels on top.

Bake for about 20 minutes until the edges are firm.

Cut into 12, serve just warm or cold.
