Pretzel Pecan Crumb Bars

Happy April Something Swanky readers! It’s Emily from It Bakes Me Happy here again to share another tasty bar dessert you’re sure to love! With the temperatures starting to rise that typically means picnics and family get togethers increase and these buttery, Pretzel Pecan Crumb Bars make the perfect ending to any meal.

I have days when I just crave something sweet and chocolatey, but I don’t know exactly what I want to bake. In fact I had one of those days last week, enter these Pretzel Pecan Bars; they’re buttery squares filled with white chocolate pretzel pieces, pecans and chocolate chips. They are pretty fantastic alone but even better when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or make it a real treat and throw a little chocolate fudge on top as well. I really think you’re going to love these bars, they’re easy to make, delicious and a real crowd pleaser; enjoy and happy baking!

White chocolate covered pretzels, pecans and lots of chocolate chips come together in these Pretzel Pecan Crumb Bars.


2 1/4 c all-purpose flour

1/2 c old fashioned oats

1/4 c brown sugar

1/4 c sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 c butter, diced

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

12 white chocolate covered pretzels, roughly chopped

1/2 c chocolate chips

1/2 c pecans, chopped

1/4 c sweetened condensed milk


Preheat your oven to 375º F and line an 8"x8" baking pan with foil, set aside. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, oats, sugars, baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture is a sandy texture, stir in the egg and vanilla extract. Press 2/3 of the dough mixture into the bottom of your baking pan and sprinkle the chopped pretzels, pecans and chocolate chips over the crust layer. Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk on top and drop the remaining crumb topping randomly over the top. Bake for about 30-32 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes, slice and serve. Store remaining bars in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
