pretzel toffee chip brownies

do you like take 5 candy bars? inorite?! well these little beauts are take 5s in brownie form. INORITE?! read on, lover of all that is good in the world.

auditory pairing: fun. - walking the dog (bc its pk's first birfday today!)

first person who tells me what this molecular structure is gets something special from me!

hint: it has something to do with this recipe

pretzel toffee chip brownies
yields ~1 dozen big brownies
adapted from recipegirl

1/2c butter (1 stick)
2  1oz squares dark chocolate
1/2c sugar
3/4c flour
2 eggs
1/2c toffee bits
1 bag chocolate chips/chunks
1c broken up pretzels

1. preheat oven to 350, line half-sheet or square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray

2. melt butter and chocolate, transfer to bowl

3. add sugar, flour, and eggs to said bowl, whisk baby whisk

4. add chocolate chips/chunks, toffee bits, pretzels, mix. pour mixture into foiled/sprayed pan and smooth with spatula

5. bake ~15 mins for half-sheet pan, ~20 mins for square pan, until brownies appear done

6. and trust me, you WANT this step. let brownies cool completely, and then place in fridge for a few hours. this is done for two reasons, a: it is akin to hot lava at the end of it's baking period. it will burn your whole mouth and make your palate never taste food the same again...not that i did that. b: when the chocolate chunks resolidify, they're money. they're so money they don't even know it and make this whole situation jump up to a higha level!



  1. Oooooh... I would recognize that theobromine anywhere! PS... this is, ironically, the molecule which makes chocolate so bad for dogs, so keep that shite away from the burfday beeest!

  2. It's a good thing Brendan answered before me, cause I was going to make a fool of myself and say caffeine (well, actually I would have said 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine completely ignoring that there are only two methyl groups).

  3. hahaha, well done guys! brendan, technically my facebook friends cracked the code first. but since you're the first on here, i feel like i should give you something too!
