  • ​Use peanut butter chips instead of peanut butter, chunky peanut butter works great too!
  • Chocolate almond bark or semi-sweet chocolate chips can easily replace the white chocolate.
  • Why not add mini marshmallows, toffee bits, rice krispies or pretzel pieces?
  • Try changing up this easy candy by replacing the peanuts with different nuts like cashews, almonds or macadamia nuts.
  • Omit the peanuts entirely and use shredded coconut or pretzels instead.
