Cooking with Kids: Pretzel Brownies

YUMMM! I LOVE mixing sweet and salty flavors together! And these little treats are soooo good! And the kids will love helping you out with cooking....and polishing off the entire pan! :)

Pretzel Brownies
Grocery List:
1 1/3 cups (8 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
61 saltine crackers, finely crushed
1 can (14 oz) fat-free sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
3 cups bite-size pretzels

How to make it:
1. You'll need a 9-in. square baking pan lined with nonstick foil to extend about 2 in. above opposite ends of pan.

2. Melt both chocolates and the butter in a large bowl in microwave or in a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring often, until blended and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in cracker crumbs (you should have 2 cups) and milk until blended. Fold in 2 cups pretzels.

3. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Lay remaining pretzels on top. Cover and refrigerate at least 1-2 hours or until firm.

4. Lift foil by ends onto cutting board. Cut into 6 strips, then cut each strip into 6 squares.
