2 eggs 
2 tsp vanilla 
1 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp coarse sea salt (or regular salt)
1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped pretzels

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips, melted

1.  Preheat oven to 350℉.  Spray a 9×13inch pan lightly with cooking spray. 

 2.  Beat together your butter and sugars until light and fluffy, approx 1 min.  Add eggs and vanilla, mix until incorporated.
