Avalanche Bars – Rice Krispies cereal coated with white chocolate and peanut butter with marshmallows and chocolate chips mixed in. No bake and really simple!
Happy Tuesday! Back to the real world today, huh? That long weekend sure was nice.
This morning I have to take Penelope (#idiothusky) to the vet for her regular ol’ checkup. And the big plan is to drop her off and then call Clementine’s (the cockapoo) hair girl to see if she can squeeze her in before Penelope gets home.
Because, yeah, you guessed it. She still thinks Clem is a new dog whenever she gets a haircut. Like, she actually growls at her and won’t let her near the food bowls. This has happened every 8 weeks for 2 years now.
#IdiotHusky for real.
So I’m hoping that if it happens while she’s gone, she’ll come home and think “Hey, you look different. But you’re still Clem.”
These are the things you have to think about when you live with a husky.
Also, “$#%^, her snowprints disappeared, which way did she go?”
And sometimes, “Gahhhh, I hope I left her enough treats so she won’t pull dishes out of the sink and eat all the spatulas!”
And don’t forget, “Did you really get sick all over the modem? REALLY?!”
I’ll keep you updated.
How To Make Avalanche Bars!
I love any bar that starts with Rice Krispies. I love plain Rice Krispies treats, I love peanut butter Rice Krispies treats, I love them all. So this is kind of a dream come true.
You melt white chocolate chips and peanut butter together until they are nice and smooth. Then you stir in the Rice Krispies until it is all coated. And then you have to wait a few minutes. Because if you stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallows when the peanut butter mixture is piping hot, the chocolate and marshmallows will help and that would be sad!
So give it about 15 minutes to cool down and then stir in the mini chocolate chips and marshmallows. Then you can transfer it into a pan and let it set!
They are delicious and since the only real work you have to do is melting the white chocolate chips, they’re super quick to throw together and then you just have to wait for them to set before cutting them.
