To make the crust

  • 1/2 cup pretzels, finely ground (I used a Vitamix)
  • 1/2 cup room temperature butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon extract de vanille
  • a quarter cup of powdered sugar
  • a quarter cup of cocoa powder
  • flour, 3/4 cup

To make the caramel

  • 1 can condensed milk, sweetened
  • 1 tsp. salt (kosher)

To make the chocolate topping

  • a third of a cup of bittersweet chocolate/chips
  • 1/2 gallon of heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup lightly crushed pecan halves
  • flakes of sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Make the caramel first thing in the morning. Remove the label off the sweetened condensed milk container and set it in a saucepan of boiling water on its side. Make sure the water is always covering the top of the can (you will have to pour in more water from time to time). Reduce the heat to low and cook for 2 1/2 hours. Allow the can to cool to room temperature before opening and stirring in the salt. Remove from the equation.
  2. Grease a tart pan with a detachable bottom generously. 2 minutes on medium high speed, whip the butter and ground pretzels in a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. For one further minute, beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add the powdered sugar, cocoa, and flour, mixing until well blended. Remove the dough from the mixer and flatten it into a disk.
  3. Roll out the dough between two big sheets of plastic wrap into a huge circle. Your circle should be 1 1/2 inches bigger than your tart pan’s diameter. Remove the top layer of plastic wrap from the dough and transfer it to the tart pan. Fill the pan with dough and use leftover dough to fix any holes. Trim extra dough with a sharp knife to create a neat edge. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes after loosely wrapping in plastic wrap.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Stabbing the bottom of the dough with a fork a few times creates air pockets. Fill the dough with dried beans, grains, or pie weights after lining it with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes before removing the weights and parchment paper and continuing to bake for another 10 minutes. Allow to chill in the refrigerator.
  5. Pour in the salted caramel once the crust has cooled for 15 minutes. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Assemble your chocolate topping. In a small saucepan, heat the cream until it begins to simmer and steam (not boiling). Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate chips. Pour over salted caramel and top with pecans once thoroughly blended. Allow it chill for at least 2 hours in the fridge before topping with sea salt flakes and serving!
