Salted Caramel Pretzel Crunch Brownies

So I was craving something sweet and salty...again. 

These brownies are a twist on the classic "poor man's" turtles. We make them every year for Thanksgiving and take a pretzel, place a Rolo on top, pop it in the oven until it's slightly melted, and then top it with a pecan. AH-MAZING! It's seriously the easiest dessert ever and soooo freakin' good! 

So I decided to make those delicious turtles in brownie form. The saltiness from the pretzels just adds something amazing to sweet and rich desserts! 

You start with a rich and fudgy brownie layer, topped with ooey gooey salted caramel, and then sprinkle on some crunchy pretzels and pecans. The whole thing is then drizzled with melted chocolate. YES. PLEASE. 

This recipe is a quick and easy way to jazz up a standard brownie that takes a normal dessert to the next level!

Salted Caramel Pretzel Crunch Brownies 
1 box fudge brownie mix
1 egg
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 bag (14oz) caramels
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup pretzels, coarsely crushed
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine brownie mix, water, oil, and egg. Spread into pan. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out almost clean. Cool for about 5 minutes.
  • While the brownies are baking, in medium bowl, microwave caramels and milk uncovered for 20 second intervals, stirring until completely melted. Stir in salt. Pour over warm brownies. 
  • Sprinkle pretzels and pecans over the caramel and lightly press down so they all stick to the caramel.
  • Microwave the chocolate chips for 30-35 seconds and stir until smooth. Drizzle over brownies. 
  • Refrigerate brownies for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
