Pretzel and Toffee Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe

I am crazy about dessert!  My husband knows how much I love dessert and bet me that I couldn’t go a month without it.  I was determined to prove him wrong!  The first few days were rough, but I made it through!  About a week and a half into it, I came across this recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe.  I thought I would have enough self control to make these tasty brownies without tasting any of them.  I was wrong.  I finally couldn’t take it anymore and devoured these babies like it was nobody’s business!  It was totally worth it.  They are that good!

  • 1 1/4 cups butter
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup coarsely crushed pretzels
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

  3. Stir in vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Continue to mix and add flour until well blended.  
  4. Spread batter evenly in lined pan.
  5. Melt peanut butter in a small bowl in the microwave, until pourable (about 30 seconds to 1 minute). 
  6. Drizzle the peanut butter over the brownies and swirl into brownie batter using a butter knife.  
  7. Sprinkle on pretzels, chocolate chips, and toffee.  
  8. Bake for 22-25 minutes until set. Let cool completely before serving.
