This recipe is just another fun variation of my Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies or #KimHoeltjeCookies as they have become known as on social media.

Feel free to play around with different flavor combinations, but I am obsessed with anything salted caramel!

After your batter is all mixed and ready to be baked, top it with all the goodness!!

I don’t recommend putting the pretzels in the batter because they will get soggy.  Top with as many pretzels and chocolate chips as you like! Don’t forget the sprinkle of sea salt! 

Bake at 350 for 28-30 minutes

The bar is nice and soft.  The pretzels add a nice crunch. The chocolate adds some sweetness.  And the sea salt gives it just the right amount of savory.

You just can’t beat a sweet, savory, soft, crunchy, and chocolatey bar!

Since the entire batch has 35 grams of protein, these make a great breakfast, lunch, OR dinner! 

If someone tells you that you can’t have dessert for dinner, get away from that person! You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life…
