Easy No Bake Avalanche Cookies – just 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make this cookie version of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s Avalanche Bark!
I love easy no bake desserts and these avalanche cookies are right up there, they could not be simpler to make. These are great for the middle of the summer when you just want something sweet, but don’t want to turn on the oven. Or for a treat for the holidays like Reese’s Fudge.
These No Bake Chocolate Avalanche Bars are another version with 3 different kinds of chocolate for the chocolate lover in your life!
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. This Easy Prime Rib is kind of a staple for holiday meals. 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!
How to Make Avalanche Cookies
These are so simple to make, you just need a large bowl, spatula, and a baking sheet. Start by melting together the white chocolate and peanut butter together. I like to do this in the microwave, checking every 30 seconds. But you can use a double boiler over the stove if you prefer. After it is all melted, add in rice krispies and the marshmallows and mix until everything is well coated.
I like to use 2 spoons to scoop the mixture onto a baking sheet so that it can set up. Once all the cookies are formed on a baking sheet you can sprinkle over a few chocolate chips if you want to. Then just let them sit for a couple hours or until the chocolate has hardened. Then you can enjoy! Super simple, with just about 5 minutes worth of work!
How to make these Peanut Allergy Friendly
- Biscoff or Cookie Butter spread is amazing in these
- Sunbutter is great for tree nut allergies as well
- If tree nuts are ok, then almond butter or even Nutella would be great.
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!! You can even sprinkle a few mini chocolate chips on top to make them more like Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s avalanche bark.
