Sweet and salty with just the right hit of bourbon and chocolate.
In a medium bowl, combine the crushed pretzels, unsalted butter and brown sugar. Combine and mix thoroughly. Press this mixture in to a 9-inch, shallow pie pan and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 375ºF.
In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, butter, and corn syrup. Then add the sugar and bourbon. Pour this into the chilled pie crust and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 375ºF then reduce oven temperature to 350ºF. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the pie is just set.
Allow to cool to room temperature.
For the ganache:
In a small saucepan over low heat combine the chocolate chips and whipping cream. Stir periodically while the chocolate melts, whisking to remove any lumps if needed. Allow to cool slightly until the chocolate reaches a thicker, pouring consistency, about 30 minutes. Spread, using an offset spatula over the top of the cooled pie.
Place pretzels decoratively around the edge. Allow chocolate to firm up slightly, then serve.
