Delicious fudge brownies are filled with salty pretzels and a layer of caramel on top!


box Betty Crocker™ fudge brownie mix (for a 9x13 pan)
cup water
cup vegetable oil
cups pretzels
jar caramel sauce
Coarse sea salt


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper, or grease with cooking spray.
  • 2 Prepare brownie batter according to package instructions.
  • 3 Pour about 1/3 of the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread until the bottom of the pan is evenly coated. Then add two even layers of pretzels, covering the entire surface. Carefully spoon the remaining brownie batter on top to cover the pretzels.

Salted Pretzel Caramel Brownies

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

Salted caramel chocolate people, meet your dream dessert.

They’re sweet.

They’re salty.


What more can I say?!?  These brownies have everything you could want and more.   From the double layer of salty crunchy pretzels, to the sweet layer of salted caramel on top, to the ooey gooey fudge brownies -- you can’t help but love this dessert that pretty much has it all.  And it only takes minutes to prep!

I think you had better give it a try…


Betty Crocker brownie mix.

Start with a box of Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies.


Prepare brownie mix.

Prepare the brownie batter according to package instructions.  Pour about 1/3 of the batter into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper or greased with cooking spray.  Spread the batter so that it forms an even layer to coat the bottom of the pan. 


Place pretzels in pan.

Then comes the fun pretzel part!  Lay the pretzels down in an even layer on top of the brownie batter, then add a second even layer.


Spoon brownie mix over pretzels.

Spoon the rest of the brownie batter on top of the pretzel layer.  I found it worked best to spoon the batter on in small clumps.  Then bake the brownies in the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Spoon caramel over baked brownies.

Once the brownies are out, spoon some caramel sauce onto the top of the brownies.


Smooth caramel to an even layer.

And smooth it out to form an even layer.


Sprinkle coarse sea salt over all.

Sprinkle with some coarse sea salt.  And then once the brownies have cooled, lift them out of the pan if you used parchment paper for easy cutting.  (Or you can cut them in the pan.)


Cut brownies into squares.

Cut them into individual bars, and watch that ooey gooey caramel mix with those salty pretzels and chocolate.


Salted Pretzel Caramel Brownies ready to eat!

Sweet and salty HEAVEN!
