These no-bake treats couldn’t be easier! White chocolate chips and peanut butter are melted together before being added to marshmallows and rice krispies.

Tips + Variations:

  • If you don’t have a double broiler – just make one with what you have on hand! Using a sauce pan, add a few inches of water and simmer. Add a metal bowl or glass bowl that will fit snuggly on top of the sauce pan. Be careful to not burn yourself when you remove the bowl after you melt the ingredients. The bowl will be very hot and the steam will come out from under the bowl!
  • Use milk chocolate chips in place of white chocolate chips
  • Add in other ingredients to the mix – nuts, cereals, etc…

  1. I make these every Christmas- I’ve only ever heard them referred to as “Avalanche Cookies”. They’re great. I always melt the white chocolate with the peanut butter in the microwave and it works great. 45 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir, 30 more seconds, stir and done. I then pour it over the combined Rice Krispies and marshmallows and stir it all up.

  2. Christine says:

    I just made these. My grandmunchkins are going to love them. They were so easy! I added a little sprinkle of red sugar to some and some coloured sprinkles to make them more festive.

  3. I was wondering if you can use granola instead of the rice cereal.

  4. 5 stars
    One of the girls I work with always makes these. At the end before they set up she sprinkles mini chocolate chips on them. They get devoured in no time
