Avalanche Bars

THESE. ARE. SO. YUMMY!  You must try them right now!  I made them for a Sunday afternoon treat and I’ve eaten one already but the plate is sitting on the kitchen counter calling to me.  I found this recipe on a website called Lilyshop, here is the link to it:  http://www.lilyshop.com/news/item/avalanche-bars.  SO GOOD!

12 ounces of high quality white chocolate (I used my Dove)

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

3 cups Rice Krispies

1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1  In a medium bowl, break up the white chocolate and microwave on high at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until chocolate is completely melted.

2  Add the peanut butter and mix well.

3  Stir in Rice Krispies and let sit for 10 minutes or until cool.  (You don’t want the marshmallows and chocolate chips to melt when you add them.)

4  Stir in marshmallows and chocolate chips.

5  Pour mixture into a buttered or sprayed 8 x 8″ square dish.  Spread evenly.  Refrigerate for 20 minutes before serving.

OK, this is a few days later, I made those white avalanche bars on Sunday and they were gone by Monday so I made some more today which is Tuesday only this time with some Dove dark chocolate and they are just as good or better if you love dark chocolate like me.  I followed the above recipe but omitted the chocolate chips since this whole batch is chocolate.  I’m sure I’ll be making these again sometime soon with Dove milk chocolate so I’ll add another picture of those when I make them!  YUM!

  1. Ha ha ha! I don’t know either but I do know that I’ve made them three times – with white chocolate, with dark chocolate and then again with milk chocolate! All delicious!
