Here are some other fun and yummy variations to try.

Use 1/3 cup white chocolate chips, 12 caramel squares, chopped and 1/2 cup of chopped nuts.

Use 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, 4 crumbled graham crackers, and 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows.

Use 1/3 cup white chocolate chips, 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts and 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut.

Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Amazing!

If you are a real chocolate lover you can add some extra chocolate chips on top of the crisp, as well as in the mix.

Prefer milk chocolate chips? Use 1/2 cup because they’re sweeter than the dark.
