Categories     side-dish

Total Time 1 hours 55 minutes

Prep Time 30 minutes

Cook Time 25 minutes

Yield 8 pretzels

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 1/2 cups warm (110 to 115 degrees F) water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 package active dry yeast
22 ounces all-purpose flour, approximately 4 1/2 cups
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
Vegetable oil, for pan
10 cups water
2/3 cup baking soda
1 large egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon water
Pretzel salt

Steps:

  • Combine the water, sugar and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast on top. Allow to sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to foam. Add the flour and butter and, using the dough hook attachment, mix on low speed until well combined. Change to medium speed and knead until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the side of the bowl, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the dough from the bowl, clean the bowl and then oil it well with vegetable oil. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and sit in a warm place for approximately 50 to 55 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 half-sheet pans with parchment paper and lightly brush with the vegetable oil. Set aside.
  • Bring the 10 cups of water and the baking soda to a rolling boil in an 8-quart saucepan or roasting pan.
  • In the meantime, turn the dough out onto a slightly oiled work surface and divide into 8 equal pieces. Roll out each piece of dough into a 24-inch rope. Make a U-shape with the rope, holding the ends of the rope, cross them over each other and press onto the bottom of the U in order to form the shape of a pretzel. Place onto the parchment-lined half sheet pan.
  • Place the pretzels into the boiling water, 1 by 1, for 30 seconds. Remove them from the water using a large flat spatula. Return to the half sheet pan, brush the top of each pretzel with the beaten egg yolk and water mixture and sprinkle with the pretzel salt. Bake until dark golden brown in color, approximately 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Categories     dessert

Total Time 2 hours 20 minutes

Cook Time 35 minutes

Yield 12 brownies

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, plus more for the pan
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped 
2 large eggs 
1/4 cup water 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 cup granulated sugar 
3/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for the pan 
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/4 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar 
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 
1/2 cup chopped salted pretzels 

Steps:

  • For the brownies: Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan and line with parchment paper, pressing the parchment into the corners and up the sides of the pan and leaving an overhang on 2 sides. Butter the parchment and dust lightly with flour.
  • Melt the 1 stick butter in a small saucepan or high-sided skillet over medium-low heat. Add the chopped chocolate and cook, stirring constantly, until mostly melted. Remove from the heat and continue stirring until the chocolate is completely melted. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl, let cool for 10 minutes and then whisk in the eggs, water and vanilla.
  • In another large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt; whisk to combine. Transfer the dry ingredients to the melted chocolate then fold with a rubber spatula to combine. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Set aside.
  • For the topping: Stir together the peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and melted butter in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • Spoon dollops of the peanut butter mixture on top of the brownie batter. Holding a butter knife vertically, swirl up and down and horizontally and vertically until the batter and topping are nicely swirled together. Sprinkle the chopped pretzels over the top.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few crumbs, about 35 minutes.
  • Let the brownies cool in the pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Using the parchment "handles," lift the brownies out of the baking dish and transfer to a cutting board to cool completely before slicing into 12 bars.
