Avalanche Bars and Blizzard Bars

 

These recipes had been sitting in my “to try” stack for quite some time.
I needed a quick dessert one night and finally gave them a try.  I can’t believe I waited so long!  I’m not sure which I liked better, how much everyone liked them or how quick they were to make!  I really liked them much better than plain Rice Krispy treats, and they also freeze really well.  I wrap individual bars in wax paper, then place in a zip top bag or freezer container for a special lunch box treat.

The blizzard bars are my personal favorite, especially when made with dark chocolate!
