Instructions

  1. 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.

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.
  2. 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 fork, drizzle white chips mixture over chocolate mixture in pan.
  3. Cover; refrigerate 5 minutes or until firm.
  4. Bring to room temperature.
  5. Remove chocolate mixture from pan and place on cutting board, top side up; discard plastic wrap.
