Chocolate Chip and Pretzel Bar

Saturday, October 8, 2011

So on Thursday, I opened the door to a wonderful surprise, A KitchenAid Stand Mixer, a PINK Kitchenaid Stand Mixer!! I freaked out since I didn't order one and neither did my Husband.

Turns out his wonderful Grandpa got one for me <3 I didnt even know what to say, Im in L.O.V.E
Her name is Marilyn, as in Marilyn Monroe... Hubby thinks "Bettie" is better.. what do you think? :)


Isn't she perfect?

I wanted to make something to celebrate her arrival, A sweet and salty combo..

Chocolate Chip and Pretzel Bar- Yummy~


It was sooo good :D

Here's what you will need
* 2 Cup All Purpose Flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/2 teaspoon of salt
* 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter (At room temperature)
* 1 cup Light brown sugar
* 1/2 cup granulated sugar
* 2 large eggs
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 12 oz bag of chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
* 1 1/2 cup mini pretzels, chopped coarsely
* 1/4 cup chocolate chips -for drizzling (Optional)
* 1/4 cup peanut butter- for drizzling (Optional)
* 1/4 cup pretzels, Crumbled for topping (Optional)


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x 13 pan with cooking spray

2. In a bowl, whisk together your flour, baking soda and salt together. Using your mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until they are light and fluffly (for about a minute). Beat in your two eggs and the vanilla extract. On low speed, beat in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Stir in your chocolate chips and pretzel pieces!

3. Spead the batter evenly in the pan and press it down evenly using a spatula. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer the pan to a rack and cool completely.

4. In separate sandwich bags, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Cut off a small corner on each bag and drizzle the chocolate and peanut butter over the top of the bars (My chocolate bag exploded, haha Hubby requested the piece where all the chocolate was..haha) Sprinkle the extra crushes pretzels on top. Let set and then cut into squares.

(This wonderful recipe is from Brown Eyed Baker originally from Two Peas and their pod )
