Delicious fudgy brownies fully loaded with sea salt caramel, pecans and pretzels. These brownies are outrageous. If you’re a huge fan of the old sweet and salty combo, then these brownies are perfect for you. Here's how to make amazing sea salt caramel fudge brownies.

Ingredients:
  • 12 tablespoons (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2-1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups caramel bits, divided
  • 1 cup crushed pretzels
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 1 (12-15 ounce) jar caramel sauce
  • Mini pretzels, for decorating

Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 9x13-inch baking dish with parchment paper and lightly grease with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large microwavable bowl, melt the butter and 1 cup chocolate chips in 30 seconds intervals until completely melted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the sugar then whisk in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Stir in the vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Gently stir flour mixture into the wet ingredients until well incorporated.
  4. Fold in 1 cup caramel bits, 1 cup crushed pretzels, 1 cup chocolate chips and ½ cup chopped pecans. Spread batter evenly into prepared baking dish. Bake for about 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Place on a wire rack and let cool for 30 minutes before spreading caramel sauce evenly over the top of the brownies. Place additional pretzels evenly over caramel and sprinkle with remaining ¼ cups of chocolate chips, caramel bits and chopped pecans. Let brownies cool for at least 30 more minutes before lifting out of baking dish with parchment paper. Cut into squares.
