Method

Line a 9 inch square pan with plastic wrap. Place chocolate chips in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100 percent) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at HIGH an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Immediately add toffee bits, peanuts, pretzels and coconut, if desired; stir to coat. Spread mixture into prepared pan; cover with plastic wrap or foil. Refrigerate 45 minutes or until firm.


Place white chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at HIGH an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Using a fork, drizzle white chips mixture over chocolate mixture in pan. Cover and refrigerate for 5 minutes or until firm.


Bring to room temperature. Remove chocolate mixture from pan and place on cutting board, top side up; discard plastic wrap. Cut into 1½ inch squares. Place each square in a candy cup, if desired. Store in a covered container in a cool place.
