    See if you can get a reverse/left handed drill bit for undoing snapped studs.
    The bit catches into the metal and unscrews the bolt.

    pop the allen key out and try again...

    rare earth magnet may do the trick, it will certainly have enough force if your allen keys are magnetic.

    Try tapping the broken tip with a hammer and screwdriver to loosen it in the bolt.. remove with a magnet and try again.. if not unfortunately its drills
