Avalanche Bars {most delicious things ever!}

Avalanche Bars | Sweet Treats and More

Over the weekend we met some of our good friends in Santa Barbara! We rented a little apartment through AirBnB, wore the kids out at the beach by day and sat around chatting and eating late into the night!

My friend Lindsay made these Avalanche Bars for us and I could not stop eating them. She likes to call them rice krispie treats on crack. They are LOADED with white chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows and chocolate chips! She knows me so well :)

This recipe makes a huge batch! Like, dangerously big. You could probably get away with halving it, but it’s perfect for a big crowd. We have a family reunion coming up and I’ll be making these to feed the masses.

You kind of just spread the mixture into a cookie sheet and it’ll be lumpy. Let it cool and break it into pieces or squares.

Ingredients
  1. 3 (11 oz) bags white chocolate chips
  2. 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  3. 8 cups rice krispie cereal
  4. 5 cups mini marshmallows
  5. 1 (16 oz) bag mini chocolate chips (reserve a handful to sprinkle over the top)
Instructions
  1. Melt the white chocolate using a double boiler. Or bring a small pot of water to a boil, then turn heat off. Place white chocolate chips in a bowl and set on top of the pot of water). Stir chips until melted and smooth. Should take about five minutes to melt. If it's not melting turn the heat back on to a low setting. Do not let it get too hot, the chocolate will burn!
  2. Place rice krispie cereal in another bowl and set aside.
  3. Once chocolate is melted stir in peanut butter. Once combined pour over the rice krispie cereal. Let cool for a couple of minutes. Stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows while mixture is just slightly warm.
  4. Spread mixture out on a cookie sheet- it will be uneven, not smooth.
  5. Sprinkle a handful of mini chocolate chips over the top and let cool.
  6. Cut into small pieces or squares.

Peanut Butter Banana Berry Acai Bowl

Peanut Butter Banana Berry Acai Bowl

I’m totally, 100%, jumping in on the whole acai bowl craze. Full force my friends. 

Last weekend we went to a local farmers market and it had the best food! After sampling just about everything, I decided on an acai bowl for lunch. I’d had them before but never the kind with bananas, berries, and peanut butter!! I wasn’t sure how the peanut butter would be with the berries and acai, but it was DIVINE! 

The VERY next day, I recreated it. I am not ashamed to admit it has become a meal replacement for me…just a few times this week.

I bought these frozen Sambazan Acai Superfruit Packs from Costco. I blended one packet with a frozen banana and unsweetened almond milk.  It’s not very sweet, but when you load it up with berries, bananas, peanut butter and granola, it doesn’t really need to be.

If you disagree, add a little honey or use sweetened almond or cashew milk. It definitley would not be a bad thing 😉

And if you’re like me, add gobs and gobs of peanut butter!! And eat these babies all summa long. Just like I plan to.

Pineapple Upside Down Popsicles

Cool down with these Pineapple Upside Down Pops made with Greek Yogurt and real fruit!

 Cool down with these Pineapple Upside Down Pops made with Greek Yogurt and real fruit!

Hello again Sweet Treats & More readers!  Serene from House of Yumm back with some summer treats for you all.  I remember as a kid my mom would make me frozen yogurt pops.  They were one of my favorite snacks.  Super easy to make and the perfect way to cool down. These Pineapple Upside Down Pops are the same!  Just three simple ingredients and some popsicle molds is all it takes to put these together.  Plus, since they’re made with real fruit and greek yogurt you can feel good about enjoying these!

I made these with maraschino cherries, but you can definitely make them with any kind of cherry that you have on hand, just make sure you cut the pit out and just give the cherries a quick chop.  You can also make these with fresh cut pineapple, or canned pineapple chunks.  Just drain the juice if you’re using canned pineapple.

I love vanilla flavored greek yogurt, and to me, that stuff tastes like cake!  If you’re using a plain greek yogurt just add in some vanilla extract or some butter extract to give it more of a cake flavor.  Plus you can add some agave or honey to sweeten it up if desired.

  3. Spoon the yogurt, fruit mixture into popsicle molds. Insert popsicle stick and place molds into freezer. Allow at least 3 hours for freezing.
  4. To remove from molds just run hot water over the mold for approximately 30 seconds, then pull out the pop by the stick.
