Nutella Pretzel Brownies

Back in February, Jane posted this recipe in honor of National Nutella Day and I have her to thank for my latest obsession...yep Nutella! This pregnancy has only heightened my love for chocolate and I find myself making more desserts than normal (what the baby wants, the baby gets). I can't express to you enough how delicious these brownies are, I literally had to give the leftovers away because I could have easily eaten the entire pan in 2 days time. Make them!

Ingredients
Crust
1.5 cups pretzels
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp melted butter

Brownies
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup Nutella 
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
More Nutella spread for frosting the brownies
Extra pretzels for garnishing
*Optional- chocolate chips to melt and drizzle on top

1. For the crust, crush the pretzels in a food processor or in a plastic baggie. Add in the brown sugar and melted butter and combine
2. Press into a greased 8x8 pan and bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees
3. For the brownies, whisk together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the flour, Nutella, salt and baking powder until fully mixed. 
4. Pour the brownie batter over the baked crust and bake for 40 minutes at 350.
5. Let cool and frost with Nutella, garnish with pretzels and drizzle with melted chocolate.
