Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 1/2 cup crushed pretzels (100g)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature (55g)
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar

For the brownies:

  • 1 cup Nutella (290g)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (65g)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the topping:

  • 4 Tbsp caramel sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350F (180C) and line a 9x9-inch pan with two overlapping parchment paper strips that hang over the sides to make getting the brownies out of the pan easier.
  • In a small bowl mix crushed pretzels, sugar, and butter together. Press the pretzel mixture into the bottom of your pan. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment add all the ingredients for the brownies. Mix at medium speed until well combined, don't overmix.
  • Spread the brownie batter on top of the pretzel crust.
  • Pour the caramel sauce over the batter and use a fork to make some swirls. Sprinkle sea salt on top.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a skewer comes out clean with only a few moist crumbs attached. Let the brownies completely cool down before cutting into squares.
