What the heck is an Avalanche bar? Shelly at Cookies and Cups describes them as "rice krispie treats on steroids". We couldn't agree more. White chocolate, peanut butter, chocolate chips, marshmallows and, of course, rice krispies all mushed together into one intense bar. We can't wait to give these a try!
