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.

This best part about this recipe is that it’s helping a child in need!  Kellogg’s has teamed up with #Treats4Toys this holiday season and for every Rice Krispies treat shared on our social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram (through Jan. 1, 2016) using hashtag #Treats4Toys, Kellogg’s will donate a gift to Toys for Tots to help give a little joy to a child in need.  I LOVE that.

Plus, I’m offering a GIVEAWAY to my readers so that you can make your own Rice Krispie Treats.  For more information, scroll to the bottom of the post.
