Avalanche Bars

Thanks to my friend at cookies and cups for this recipe for Rice Krispies Treats on steroids. Hers look better than mine (probably because I didn't want to wait to let the peanut butter and white chocolate mixture cool), but I'm sure they tasted just as good.

12 ounces white chocolate
1/4 cup peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cup marshmallows
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips plus 2 tablespoons for garnish

Melt white chocolate in the microwave, stirring frequently. After the chocolate has melted, stir in  peanut butter. Add the Rice Krispies. Let the mixture cool for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Add the marshmallows and mini chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Press the mixture into a lightly greased 8x8 or 9x9 pan. Press the two tablespoons of mini chocolate chips on top for garnish.
When the bars are completely cool, cut into squares. 


  1. oh my gosh, I think you just should call them heaven :)

  2. ahh yes, looks like you added the chocolate chips in while the mixture was warm...hey, no worries, I bet they tasted great!
    Thanks for the shout-out :) Those things are addictive!

  3. I love cereal bars, so I am always looking for different recipes to add to my collection--these sound wonderful.
