    Alternatives - Dried strawberries and milk chocolate Dried apricots and white chocolate Peanuts and milk chocolate Walnuts and white chocolate Really you can use any 2cups of flavouring you could imagine. I often split the recipe into 2 bowls and make 2 different flavors. The Dried Strawberry and Milk Chocolate variation is my favourite, but boys and men seem to prefer the original version.
