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!
Avalanche Cookies are a classic around Christmas time, but I like to make them year round. They are so simple and take just 4 ingredients to make. You can have them pretty much done in 5 minutes and then it is just waiting for them to set up. Don’t get me wrong, that is probably the hardest part!
I like to mix it up and top about half of them with mini chocolate chips when I made them. They are a sweet cookie with the marshmallows and the almond bark, so the semi-sweet chocolate just gives it that little bit of extra something to round out the flavors. But given my husband doesn’t like chocolate, I leave some off for him.
No Bake Desserts are perfect in the summer when you are craving something sweet, but don’t want to turn on the oven to heat up the house and end up with something heavy like a layer cake. These are light, you can just have one to cure those cravings and they even freeze really well!
These have very similar ingredients to Rice Krispie Treats, but are a completely different dessert. So buy the big box of cereal next time so you can make both. Trust me, these are down right addicting and will impress everyone you serve them to. You don’t have to admit how easy they are to make.
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.
