Nutella Pretzel Bars

My search for nutella infused food continues...I stumbled upon this yummy recipe on one of my absolute favorite sites:
I love the combo of sweet and salty and the crunchy pretzels with the creamy nutella is perfection. The best way to eat these is warm out of the oven with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream. AH-MAZING!
The original recipe can be found at: Dula Notes
Makes about 16 bars.

  • 8 tbsp. (1 stick) butter, melted, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup crushed pretzels (broken into small pieces)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking pan with a sheet of parchment leaving a 2″ overhang on both edges. Butter parchment.

In a large bowl, whisk butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and Nutella until it becomes smooth. Whisk in the egg and vanilla. Add flour and salt; mix just until moistened (do not over mix). Fold in 1/2 cup of crushed pretzels. Transfer batter to prepared pan and spread in an even layer with a spatula. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/2 cup of crushed pretzels.

Bake until top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. It should take about 20-30 min. Set pan on a wire rack and let cool completely. Using parchment overhang, lift bars from pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into squares. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
