Texas Avalanche Bars

Going over to Shelly's blog at CookiesAndCups is like going to a candy store. I feel like this is what Hansel and Gretel felt like when they first saw the gingerbread house covered in sweets.  Her blog is full of unique ideas, sugary delights, and delicious delicacies. And to top it off Shelly is orginally from Houston :)

When I found these bars, it was love at first site.  I made them for our BINGO night with our group of friends :) 

You'll need:
2 bags of white chocolate chips (Ghiradelli is the best for white chocolate!)
1/3 cup of creamy peanut butter
6 cups of Rice Krispies
3 cups of miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips + 3 tablespoons for garnishment 

**Recipe cuts in half perfectly fine, just put in an 8x8 pan!

1. Grease a 9x13 pan
2. Melt white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat first for one minute, take out and stir.  Then heat again 30 seconds, mix.  If needed, heat another 30 seconds until smooth.
3. Add in peanut butter with white chocolate until completely blended
4. Add in rice krispies into the peanut butter/chocolate mix
5. Wait 10 minutes until a bit cooler and add marshmallows and chocolate chips
6. Mix throughoughly and pour into prepared pan
