Avalanche Bars Recipe PLUS {giveaway}

If you love Rice Krispies, marshmallows, white chocolate, and peanut butter, then you’ll adore avalanche bars.  Made famous by the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Company, this dreamy treat is super popular around the holidays.  The nice thing about the recipe is that you really can’t mess it up.  You can add extra peanut butter and white chocolate to make the bars a little creamier and you can use sprinkles or mini M&M’s for garnish instead of the mini chocolate chips.
