Weather: 29 degrees, snow What I’m listening to: Let it Snow, Martina McBride
This wintry confection is said to have originated with the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory’s Avalanche Bars. I haven’t been to a Rocky Mountain shop in years, and don’t recall ever having one of these, but when I encountered this peanut-buttery, crispy, marshmallowy, chocolatey recipe I had to give it a try. I suspected it would make a beautiful Christmas food gift and I was right.
My only note on these is that they are very sweet, so I cut them into small squares, about 1inch, similar to the size of a piece of fudge. A bite or two of this sweet avalanche and you’re all set. Another benefit of cutting them this size is that a batch goes a very long way and you will have plenty to package up in tins and give away.
