Chocolate Pretzel Pie

Enjoy this tasty marriage of salty and sweet with a glass of Liberty Vineyards Barrel-Select Cabernet Sauvignon (or Purple Haze if you prefer sweet wine).


  • 3 1/2 cups small pretzel twists
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice-cream topping


  • Heat oven to 350 F. In food processor, place 3 cups of pretzels and cup brown sugar. Cover and process until finely chopped. Stir in 1/2 cup melted butter. Press mixture in bottom and up sides of ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate.
  • In medium bowl, microwave cup butter and the chocolate chips uncovered on high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring once, until melted and smooth. Stir in cup brown sugar and the granulated sugar. Stir in beaten eggs. Stir in 3 tablespoons of the whipping cream, flour and vanilla. Pour into crust-lined pie plate.
  • Bake 50 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely.
  • Coarsely crush remaining cup pretzels. Whip the remaining whipping cream with cup sugar and teaspoon vanilla extract until the cream forms soft peaks. Slice pie and put a dollop of whipped cream on each slice. Drizzle each slice with caramel topping and sprinkle with crushed pretzels. Serve with Liberty Vineyards Barrel-Select Cabernet Sauvignon and enjoy!
