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.
