These are similar to your original compost cookie, with an extra dose of chocolate...or two.



First make the pretzel crust by combining the crushed pretzels, melted butter butter and sugar. Mix it all together until clumps form then press the mixture into a greased 9×13 pan.

Next, make the brownies. Start by creating a double boiler and adding the chocolate and cubed butter to the bowl. Melt the chocolate and butter together, stirring occasionally. While they are melting preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Once the butter and chocolate have melted together, turn off the heat but don’t move the pan or bowl. Add the sugars and mix until completely combined. Now you can move the bowl.

In a separate smaller bowl whisk together the flour, salt, and cocoa powder. Set it aside.

Mix 3 eggs into your chocolate mixture. Once the 3 eggs are almost fully combined add the other 2 eggs and mix until just combined.

Mix the vanilla and coffee into the chocolate mixture then sprinkle the flour combo over the chocolate mixture. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the chocolate mixture until just combined.

Fold in the remaining butterscotch chips and marshmallows. Pour it all over the pretzel crust and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until it passes the toothpick test. Allow to cool before cutting and serving
