Brownie Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cookie Layer:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup broken up pretzel pieces
  • sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a 13x9 baking dish with a parchment paper handle, spray with baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine brownie ingredients. Blend with a wooden spoon just until combined. Spread in 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.
  • Place the cookie dough between two pieces of parchment paper, roll out to the size of the pan.** Gently place over the brownie batter.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove and cool completely before slicing.


You can also scoop out pieces of the cookie dough, flatten with your hands and piece them together over the brownie batter. I find rolling it out is faster and easier.
