optional. Add coconut or nuts on topas it cools.
Melt the Andes chips and chocolate chips together with 1 tsp vegetable oil using the method of your choice. Let it cool for a few minutes, until it is just about room temperature. I used the microwave. It took 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
Spread over layer of wax paper as thick or thin as you'd like and let sit until completely hardened, about 10 minutes. You may place it in the refrigerator to speed up this process.
Melt the white candy bark according to package directions. Again, it took 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave, strring every 30 seconds. Let it cool for a couple minutes before spreading. I waited 10 minutes.
Spread over the hardened chocolate. Use a spatula to spread/smooth it out.
Sprinkle m&ms, mini marshmallows or sprinkles and sprinkle over the top and let it harden.
Break or cut into bite-sized pieces.
