Salted Butterscotch Pretzel Brookies - Dark chocolate brownie topped with butterscotch pretzel cookie. The best of both worlds all in one bar!

Salted butterscotch pretzel brookies are absolutely the best of both worlds. Soft, dark chocolate brownie topped with salty, sweet, butterscotch, pretzel cookies.

Now doesn’t that sound sinfully indulgent? Believe me, it is!

We decided to use our Butterscotch Cookie for this brookie, instead of the typical chewy chocolate chip cookie. It was definitely the right choice.

How to Make Brookies

Just look at those lovely bars loaded with dark chocolate, butterscotch, white chocolate, crunchy pretzel bits and sprinkled lightly with sea salt. Am I conveying exactly how mouth-watering these salted butterscotch pretzel brookies are?

So good that I had to send them to the office with my husband and remove them from our house.

There are a few steps to this recipe but I promise it’s worth the effort.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13×9 baking dish with a parchment paper handle, spray with baking spray.

For the brownie layer: Combine the sugar, all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, and salt with a wooden spoon. Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

For the cookie layer: In a large bowl cream butter and sugar together with a mixer until well combined.

Beat in the egg and vanilla.

In a medium bowl whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to wet ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Gently mix in the white chocolate, butterscotch chips, and pretzels.

Then place the cookie dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out to fit the pan. Place the cookie dough gently over the brownie batter, sprinkle sea salt over the top and bake.
