Chocolate Pretzel Bites

Does it get any better than a sweet, salty, chocolatey snack?! How about a sweet, salty, chocolatey snack that also has 24 grams of protein!?

These could not be any easier to make.
You just need a Double Chocolate Chunk Quest Bar, waffle shaped pretzels, and chocolate chips.
*Experiment with all different Quest Bar flavors!*

Unwrap that tasty protein bar and microwave it for 10 seconds.  
Make sure you use a microwave safe plate or a piece of parchment.  Don't use a napkin or paper towel!!

Once your bar is nice and soft, cut it up into 10 pieces.  
You could make more or less bites.  I am making 10. 

Place 10 waffle pretzels on a baking sheet.
No need to use any spray or parchment paper.  The pretzels won't stick. 

Mold the Quest Bar pieces a bit to make them about the same size as the pretzels.  Place one piece on top of each pretzel.  
Bake at 350 for 5 minutes. 

Now, you could absolutely just eat them like this!! They are fantastic! The whole plate is only 260 calories!
Let's make them just a little bit better...How are we going to do that?!

With more chocolate of course!
Take whatever kind of chips you like (white, milk, dark, butterscotch, peanut butter...) and microwave them until they get all smooth and melty.  I do 10 seconds, stir, 10 seconds, stir...

 Drizzle that melted chocolate all over the pretzel bites.
When I say all over, I mean ALLLL over!

 Does it get any better?!
I love that these are the perfect size to just pop in your mouth! Flavor explosion!

You could share these delectable little treats...
But the whole plate is only 360 calories so I eat all 10 myself! You are also getting 11g fat, 53g carb, and 24 g protein.
