Avalanche Bark

Avalanche Bark

These avalanche bark bars are the best no-bake summer treat. They are so simple and you don’t have to heat up your house to make them! I have probably made these five times in the past month and each time they have been completely devoured.

Avalanche Bark
  • 1 (12 oz) bag white chocolate chips
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cups crispy rice cereal
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1½ cups miniature marshmallows
  1. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips with peanut butter for about 40 seconds. It won't look like it has melted when it comes out of the microwave, but trust me, it's hot enough.
  2. Just stir together until all the white chocolate chips are melted. Add crispy rice cereal to mixture and wait about 10-15 minutes until the mix has reached room temp. (Don't put it in the fridge.. you don't want it to harden quite yet).
  3. Add mini chocolate chips and marshmallows. Stir until well combined.
  4. Grease a 9x13 baking pan. Press mixture down into the pan with a greased spoon or hand (but not TOO hard, you don't want to smash the rice cereal).
  5. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until hardened. Cut into squares and serve!



  1. don't get much better than this. This is a great snack for both kids and adults, and it sounds absolutely delicious. Easy to make, too.

  2. These look great, my kids will thank you for giving them something to do and eat during the dog days of summer

  3. Thanks for posting, I like this recipe but can you tell me how much time I can have it without being spoiled. Thanks!!!!!

  4. Followed the recipe exactly as written, but couldn’t slice into bars because it just crumbled. What did i do wrong?

    • I’m sorry it didn’t turn out! It could be an elevation issue. Erica suggests using an extra cup of marshmallows next time.

    • They are fairly sweet… you can use natural peanut butter (no sugar added) to cut down on the sweetness if you would like!
