Cooking oil spray, to grease
1½ cups plain flour
375 g unsalted butter, softened, finely diced
1 egg yolk
1½ cups brown sugar
½ cup honey
300 g thickened cream
150 g small pretzels, broken into pieces
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 27 x 17cm slice tin with cooking oil spray and line base and sides with baking paper. Put flour and 125g of the butter in a bowl and rub with fingertips until crumbly. Add yolk and ¼ cup of the brown sugar, then mix until combined. Press into tin, then bake for 20 minutes or until just golden.
- Meanwhile, mix honey and remaining butter and sugar in a medium saucepan. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until foamy. Add cream and cook for 10 minutes or until a soft ball forms when a drop of the mixture is added to cold water.
- Stir pretzel pieces into caramel, then spread over baked base and bake for 15 minutes or until bubbling. Set aside to cool slightly, then cut into even rectangles to serve.
