It's the ultimate treat. A creamy, fudgy, crunchy, peanut buttery treat that has the right touch of chocolate and is perfectly sweet! Hurry, you probably have everything you need to make this in your pantry!

It all starts with a divine peanut butter and white chocolate base. It is stirred into rice krispies and then combined with fluffy mini-marshmallows and chocolate chips.

I first discovered  Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory during a visit to Sedona. The aroma from the store was wafting down the sidewalk and it just about lifted me up by the nose and escorted me inside. My head was swirling. There was case after case of delicious treats to enjoy.

I was with Chad and my then 5-year-old daughter. I couldn't make a decision, everything looks soooo good. We each ordered 2 things to try and all shared. We pretty much declared their Avalanche Bark the best thing on the planet.

Well after a few more run-ins with Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and many more treats, I decided to work on a copycat make a home version. If you got a gift basket from me this Christmas, it certainly had a few of these fabulous cookies in a treat bag.
