Avalanche Bars

I got this recipe while blog-surfing, but it is originally based on a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory creation.
I tweaked it somewhat, but it remains super-easy (no bake!) and it is really tasty -- definitely not your standard rice krispie treat!

12oz bag white chocolate chips
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 cups Rice Krispies, or "Puffed Rice" if you're buying generic
1 2/3 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips + 1/4cup for garnish

Lightly grease a 9x9 pan (or 8x8 if you prefer thicker bars)
1. In microwave-safe bowl dump in white chips and heat on med power for 1 minute. Stir and continue in 30 second increments until chips are melted.
2. Combine the peanut butter with the melted chips
3. Add the krispies.
4. Let cool approx 15 - 20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes or so to help cool.
5. Add the marshmallows, peanut butter chips, and mini chocolate chips and stir to combine.
6. Dump mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly, pressing lightly with the back of your spoon, but do not compact too much, otherwise they will get hard.
7. Press the remaining chocolate chips into the top for garnish.
When the bars are completely cooled cut into squares and enjoy!
