Avalanche Bars

Rice Krispie treats are always great but sometimes it's fun to try a variation. These bars were so good. They're definitely a kid favorite and my husband loved them too. The best part about it was they were super easy to make. I think I'll add this to my list of go to desserts.

Printable Recipe

Avalanche Bars
12 oz white chocolate chips
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (I used regular sized)

Lightly grease a 9x9 pan and set aside. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips for one minute. Stir, then continue to microwave at 30 second intervals until chips are completely melted. Add the peanut butter to chocolate and mix well. Stir in rice krispies. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes, stirring a few times. Add the marshmallows and chocolate chips and stir to combine. Press the mixture into prepared pan and spread evenly. Press down lightly with the back of a spoon. Do not press too hard or the bars will become dry and tough. Garnish with additional chocolate chips, if desired. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

*This recipe can be easily doubled and put in a 9x13 pan.
