Avalanche Bars

· 1 (12 ounce) bag of white chocolate chips (or one package of vanilla almond bark)
· 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
· 3 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
· 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
· 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips + 2 tablespoons for garnish

In microwave-safe bowl heat the while chocolate chips for 1 minute. Stir and continue in 30 second increments until chips are melted.
Combine the peanut butter with the melted chips, add the Rice Krispies cereal.
Let cool about 15 – 20 minutes; stirring every 5 minutes to help cool.
Add the marshmallows and the mini chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Line 9x9 pan with aluminum foil, folding extra over edges of pan, and grease lightly.
Place mixture into pan. Spread evenly, pressing lightly with the back of your spoon. Press the remaining chocolate chips into the top for garnish.
When the bars are completely cooled, pull out of pan by lifting aluminum foil. Cut into squares.

Here are the major players.  You just can't go wrong with a list that includes chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows and Rice Krispies.

    I lined the 9x9 dish with foil and then sprayed it with cooking spray.

    Ready to go in the microwave.

    A quick mix before going back in the microwave.

    The chocolate is melted and now to add the peanut butter.

    This is the mixture of chocolate, peanut butter and Rice Krispies. 

    Adding the marshmallows and mini chocolate chips.

    Once all of the ingredients are mixed well, pat it into the prepared pan. 

    I let the mixture sit on the counter a couple of hours before lifting it out by the edges of the foil and then cutting into squares. 

    These would be perfect if you need something to put a child's lunch, take to an event, or eat before you go to bed.  (I wouldn't know.)
