Pretzel-Crusted Peanut Butter Brownies

Pretzel-Crusted Peanut Butter Brownies are the ultimate brownie for chocolate|peanut butter lovers and sweet|salty lovers. This is a four-layer brownie dessert made up of a salty, buttery pretzel layer topped with peanut butter cookie dough, Reese's cups, and rich brownie batter. The outcome is decadent, with melted chocolate and peanut butter oozing out of every bite.

Pretzel-Crusted Peanut Butter Brownies

·3/4 cup gluten-free pretzels, chopped so some large chunks remain - I used Glutino Gluten-Free Pretzels
·1/4 cup butter, melted
·1 cup peanut butter - I made homemade peanut butter but store-bought will work fine
·1/2 cup sugar
·1 egg
·8 regular-sized Reese's cups
·1 box gluten-free brownie mix, mixed according to package directions - I used Aldi's LiveGFree Brownie Mix

Preheat oven to 350˚. Grease the bottom and sides of an 8x8-inch pan.

In a small bowl, mix chopped pretzels and melted butter. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.

In a separate bowl, mix peanut butter, sugar, and egg. Layer on top of the pretzel mixture.

Place unwrapped Reese's cups on top of the peanut butter layer.

Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Pour brownie batter on top of Reese's cup layer.

Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until a tooth-pick inserted into the brownie layer only comes out clean.
