Avalanche Bars

Looking for a great dessert to share with friends? These sweet treats are simple, budget friendly, and mouthwatering. “They’re like Rice Krispies Treats on steroids!”

1 bag (12-oz) white chocolate chips 
¼ cup peanut butter (creamy)
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 ½ cups mini marshmallows
¼ cup + 2 T. mini chocolate chips

Pour white chocolate chips into a large, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for one minute. Stir and microwave in 30-second increments until chocolate is melted. Before the last increment, stir in peanut butter and heat one last time. Stir until completely combined. Fold in Rice Krispies. Let cool 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

Stir in marshmallows and ¼ cup of chocolate chips. Press mixture into greased square pan (9x9 or 8x8). Press lightly with the back of your spoon, but do not compact too much, as the bars will become too hard. Press the remaining chocolate chips into the top of the mixture. Cool completely and cut into bars.
