Avalanche Bark just like they make at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory!
About a month ago I received a package in the mail. A package from one of my amazing blog readers, Abby.
This package contained something delicious – Avalanche Bark. I had never heard of Avalanche Bark before but knowing that I was a fellow “bark” lover Abby was sure I would enjoy it too. She was right.
The recipe is a copycat recipe from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I love their caramel apples but have never tried the Avalanche Bark. But now I don’t have too. I can make it at home!
I am a big bark fan. One of the reasons I like bark so much is that it is easy candy to make – no candy thermometer required. It goes together quickly and you can get creative with what you put it in. One of my favorites is one I shared last Christmas – Reindeer Bark.
For some of my other favorite bark recipes check out my post on some of my favorite holiday food gifts to give to friends and neighbors. I am excited to have a new one to add to that list – Avalanche Bark!
Avalanche Bark is a combination of white chocolate, peanut butter, chocolate chips and marshmallows – how could it be anything but wonderful?!
It will definitely be making an appearance in my goodie bags for friends this holiday season. Thanks for sharing Abby!
- 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
- 3 1/2 C white chocolate chips
- 2 C Rice Krispies
- 1 C miniature marshmallows slightly packed
- 1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
Place semi-sweet chocolate chips in the freezer to harden
In a double boiler (or a metal bowl over a pan of water) over medium heat, while stirring constantly melt white chocolate chips and peanut butter
Once completely melted remove from heat and allow to cool for about 5 minutes
Stir in Rice Krispies and then set aside until the mixture is nearly room temperature
This will take a while but is necessary to keep the semi-sweet chocolate chips and marshmallows from melting
Do not place the mixture in the refrigerator to sped up the cooling time or the chocolate may prematurely harden
When the mixture is close to room temperature, fold in the marshmallows followed by the frozen chocolate chips
Don't over mix or the chips may melt
Pour the mixture into a greased or wax paper lined 9 x 13 pan
Smooth out the top of the using a second sheet of wax paper
Place in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes or until hard
Cut into desired size pieces
If it is too hard to cut allow it to set out a few minutes and soften
