Avalanche Bars

Oh my were these good!!  A favorite at a family dinner this weekend!  Definitely a fun and different way to enjoy a rice crispy treat!  Super sweet too.  I think next time I will add even more marshmellows because those were my favorite bites!  (my husband agrees)  I think I will add at least two cups of marshmellows next time.  Those chewy bites were the best! :)  Super quick and easy too.  The best!

12 oz bag of White Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips + 2 Tbsp for garnish.
Lightly grease a 9x9 pan

In microwave-safe bowl pour in white chips and heat on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and continue in 30 second increments until chips are melted.
Combine the peanut butter with the melted chips and add the krispies.
Let cool approx 15 – 20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes or so to help cool.
Add the marshmallows and the mini chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Pour mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly, pressing lightly with the back of your spoon, but do not compact too much, otherwise they will get hard.
Press the remaining chocolate chips into the top for garnish.
When the bars are completely cooled cut into squares and enjoy!

Another great thing about this recipe is that it is Gluten free!!!!  Wahoo!
