4. Immediately transfer chcolate fudge into the prepared loaf pan, spread evenly. (If the fudge is little thick, then use the back of spoon to spread).

5. Evenly crumble cookie dough on top of chocolate fudge. Gently press with the back of a spoon or your fingertips, to smoothen.

6. Place pretzels on top (pressing gently into the dough) and sprinkle with additional salt. 

7. Finally drizzle with melted chocolate ( Place 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips and vegetable oil in a small microwave safe bowl, microwave until completely melted. Use a fork to drizzle).

8. Place loaf pan in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to firm.

9. Run a knife around the edges on the loaf pan, to loosen and transfer on a counter. Cut into bars or squares. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator. Let fudge thaw at room temperature for at least 10-15 minutes before enjoying.
