    Tips:

    Substitute walnuts, almonds or cashews for pecans. Use sunflower seeds, pine nuts, toasted coconut, corn nuts, chickpea or lentil snacks for crunchy additions instead of pumpkin seeds. Change up dark chocolate chunks with brownie bits, milk or white chocolate chips. Add savoury twists, like bacon bits, grated Parmesan cheese, smoky almonds, pretzel twists or bagel chips. Season with your favorite spice blend or simply sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper, smoked paprika or freshly ground pepper.

    Tip:

    For variations, rummage through your cupboard for substitutions and have fun creating new taste sensations. Try chopped dried fruit, unsalted toasted nuts or seeds, chocolate-dipped or candy-coated snacks, crumbled cookies, crackers, cereals or even rice cereal treats. Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar or hot chocolate powder for an extra flavour boost.
