Line an 8x8″ brownie pan with parchment paper both ways and set aside.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the syrup and peanut butter.
Stir in the protein powder, then fold in the chopped pretzels. Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan, place a sheet of parchment paper on top, and flatten with your hands. Place the pan in the freezer while you make the filling.
FOR THE FILLING:
In a medium-sized mixing bowl (I used the same bowl used for the base), stir together the syrup and peanut butter.
Stir in the protein powder. Scoop mixture over the base and flatten it out.
FOR THE TOPPINGS:
Drizzle about half of the chocolate over the filling layer, sprinkle with the chopped pretzels, pressing them into the fudge, then drizzle with the remaining chocolate.
Cover and refrigerate for ~3+ hours to firm up, then slice with a sharp knife. Serve and enjoy!
Best served the day these are made. The longer they sit, the more the pretzels lose their crunch.
