Wow! This brownie has a ton of stuff going on with it. From the brownie to the drizzled chocolate to the pretzel on top, it is soo delicious and trust me you only need to eat 1! Pretzels involved in desserts is one of my favorite combinations and pretzels by themselves are awesome as well. All of you Americans can even try this for dessert for your superbowl party tonight!

4. Top with the pretzels, leaving space between each pretzel to cut the brownies out around them. (Each brownie will have one whole pretzel.) Top lightly with a sprinkle of coarse sea salt.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove them from the oven when the center is still slightly underdone and allow them to cool completely on a cooling rack.

6. In two separate bowls, melt the white chocolate chips and semi sweet chocolate chips in the microwave. To each bowl, add 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil. Stir until smooth. In two separate zipper bags, pour in the chocolates.

7. Snip the end off of the white chocolate and drizzle over the brownies. (I like to do this after the brownies are cut while they are on a cooling rack hanging over the kitchen sink.) Finish off the brownies by drizzling them with the semi sweet chocolate.
