How to make avalanche cookies
Avalanche cookies are easy to make!
First prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix the rice crackers and mini marshmallows. Put that bowl aside.
In a small saucepan, melt the white chocolate chips and peanut butter over low heat. Stir this mixture constantly. When all is melted, pour it on the rice cracker mixture. Mix everything together.
Use a large cookie scoop to pour the mixture onto the baking sheet. If needed, sprinkle mini chocolate chips on the biscuits. Let them sit down until they are firm and enjoy!
- Use ¼ cup of crunchy peanut butter and ¼ cup of smooth peanut butter to easily add chopped nuts.
- We do not recommend using natural peanut butter in this recipe.
- Be sure to add mini chocolate chips or other sugar crumbs before the cookies are set, otherwise they won’t stick together.
- You can use vanilla sugar crust or even milk chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips.
- To help cookies set faster, put them in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes.
FAQ + Storage
gluten free? Not all rice crackers are gluten-free, so make sure you buy the correct type. You can also use regular Rice Chex. For smaller pieces, simply chop Chex in a food processor before mixing the biscuits.
Peanut allergy? For those who are allergic to tree nuts and peanuts, try using Biscoff/Cookie Butter spread or Sunbutter. Almond butter or peanut butter is also suitable for people who are allergic to peanuts only.
Can I use regular sized marshmallows? Unlike rice crackers, marshmallows will not melt. You want to spread the mini marshmallows throughout the biscuit mixture. If you only have regular-sized marshmallows in your cupboard, you can still make this delicious food. Take 7-8 regular-sized marshmallows and some kitchen scissors. Cut each marshmallow into about 8-10 pieces, then stir them into the mixture. (1 c mini marshmallow is equal to 7-8 normal-sized marshmallows)
How to store it? After the biscuits are set and completely cooled, store them in an airtight container for about 5 days. You can also store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
