Just because it's one of those kinds of days....

Picture compliments from: cookies and cups

Some days you just need something sweet, sweet, sweet.  This treat does not disappoint. In fact, I think from now on I should only be allowed to make this when I know others will be devouring it as well...otherwise, might just find me, with a smile, a fork, an empty pan, and crumbs all over my expanding belly. While these are great just as they are, I think next time I would add more peanut butter, perhaps some chopped peanuts, and would skip the mini chips all together....because lets face it, more chocolate never hurt anybody. It just needed a little more salty with the sweet....but that's just a personal preference, do as you please.

Go ahead, make a batch....did I mention it takes like two seconds to whip up? Oh yeah baby.

Avalanche Bars
(Source: Cookies and Cups)

  • 12 oz bag of White Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips + 2 Tbsp for garnish.
  • Lightly grease a 9x9 pan
How to Make
  1. In microwave-safe bowl pour in white chips and heat on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and continue in 30 second increments until chips are melted.
  2. Combine the peanut butter with the melted chips and add the krispies.
  3. Let cool approx 15 – 20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes or so to help cool.
  4. Add the marshmallows and the mini chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  5. Pour mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly, pressing lightly with the back of your spoon, but do not compact too much, otherwise they will get hard.
  6. Press the remaining chocolate chips into the top for garnish.
  7. When the bars are completely cooled cut into squares and eat your heart out.
