Easy No Bake Avalanche Cookies – just 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make this cookie version of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s Avalanche Bark!
Exactly 2 weeks until Christmas. Are you ready? I am not even close! Still have gifts to buy, haven’t wrapped a thing, and have a few more things that I want to bake. My in-laws arrive next weekend, so I need to get my butt in gear!
We did figure out what we are going to make for Christmas dinner though. So one thing has been decided and is actually ordered. If you are in the same boat, these no bake avalanche cookies are right up your alley. They only take 5 minutes!! Check out the video at the bottom for a quick how-to!
This last weekend I had a cookie exchange with a group of friends. I was struggling with what to make. I had made homemade caramel cups, but overnight the caramel leaked out and it was a giant mess. After spending literally hours the day before, I was not in the mood to do a lot of work. I wanted something No Bake that would be quick.
So I made these no bake avalanche cookies. They are so easy and just 4 ingredients! I spent about 5 minutes mixing them up and spooning them onto a cookie sheet. Then they just needed to set up before I could package them in bags for the cookies exchange. Couldn’t be easier!
These easy no bake avalanche cookies were such a hit at the last cookie exchange, I am making them again this weekend for a different exchange! The original version is made with peanut butter, but because I knew there were some families with peanut allergies I used Biscoff Spread.
The Biscoff gives the avalanche cookies a little extra flavor that is perfect for the holidays. I have made these cookies a few times with peanut butter, with Biscoff spread and with a combination of each. So mix it up and see what your family likes best!!
Some of my favorite Kitchen Items used in this recipe
Silicone Baking Mats – I love these for baking cookies, pizza, bread, and just about anything else. Nothing sticks, and clean up is a breeze!
Sheet Pans: A good quality, durable sheet pan is great for baking cookies, roasting veggies, or full sheet pan dinner. These are my favorite kind and have been using them for years.
Mixing Bowls: I love having a variety of sizes of mixing bowls. From small to large, I find that having at least 3 bowls of different sizes has been an essential in my kitchen. I prefer Pyrex because of the durability.
Rubber Spatula – Nothing like being able to scrape any type of bowl clean without scratching it up. Don’t forget one of these babies to get every last bit out of your bowl.
