I used to work at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and this has been a holiday staple for us ever since. Note to anyone baking this - it's an extremely forgiving recipe. Feel free to play with it, it's almost impossible to ruin! Some things we did differently in our shop: Substitute M&M's (Regular size or mini) instead of the mini chocolate chips Put candy sprinkles on top Substitute white chocolate bar for the white chocolate chips You also do not need to wait to add the marshmallows, but will need to wait to add the chocolate chips if using (you will not need to wait to add M&M's)

My husband loves this from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, so I decided to look it up and this recipe is wonderful! I use a little bit more white chocolate and peanut butter so that it stays together better and is more moist. It's wonderful, easy to make, hard to mess up, and addicting!

hmmm if i remember correctly... it was.... half or less than half the peanut butter than the chocolate.... (like a Lb. of PB using 2.5 or 3 Lb of white choco)... Good try, though... and it didn't take me an hour an a half to make a batch, maybe 45 minutes... and it is better to use a microwave to melt the white chocolate (30 seconds at a time, mixing every time)... when it is melted (be careful not to burn it), then mix the pb (it gets softer because of the heat of the white choco)... and then the rice krispies and the marshmallows and the chips and then put it on some tray with that paper that doesn't stick (sorry, my english is not the best xD).... and save some chips to put on top if you want it as similar to the original as possible..... it dries in, like, 20 minutes?..... that's what i used to do at the store :/

This recipe is great. It is easy and quick to make. Everyone raves about the avalanche bark. I used almond butter for some one that had an allergy to peanut butter, she loved it (so did everyone else).

Followed recipe exactly. This was so simple to make. Everyone really liked these. They were gone in no time. I had several comments on how soft these are, compared to regular Rice Krispie Treats. Love the fact that these are quick, easy and delicious. Thanks Katy for a new family favorite.

This is like crack cocaine......I can't get enough. LOL That's what we call it in our family. Say good bye to Rice Krispie Squares....hello Avalanche Bark! So easy and so yummy! Make sure you wait until it comes to room temp like the recipe says. There is no way you won't like this recipe! We made 4 batches in a week in our family. Yum!

YUM! This stuff is wild! Be sure to share it with your friends, or you'll find yourself eating the whole pan!!! I used 8 squares of white baking chocolate and 1/3 c of p.b. and sub'd reg chips for the mini ones. I think you could have a lot of fun varying the mix-ins!

I have made this 3 times in 2 weeks. It is absolutely ADDICTIVE, and I am not a big peanut butter eater. I added pretzels and it was great too. Thanks sooooo much KatyMomma for a wonderful recipe. It is a Christmas (&Thanksgiving) must at my house!
