Oh Oh Avalanche!

Avalanche Bark (2)

Did I get your attention already with the Title? Yes these are called avalanche Bark, and they are very sweet so  one of these and a glass of milk will be required. One of my Co-workers had found this on the internet, and she posted it to her face book page. I of course had to make these since I already had everything in my cupboards and in my fridge from what the recipe called for.

honestly it  did not take very long to put this together, and not much clean up duty afterwards so I was highly impressed. It took me like 10 minutes to put it all together, and then it took 30 minutes to harden up in the fridge.  These are great treats for little ones lunch box surprise, and children’s birthday parties etc.

you want to make sure with the white Chocolate and peanut butter that you do not burn the chocolate in the microwave.  When melting the chips with the peanut butter I actually had to microwave on high for 45 seconds, take it out and stir the Contents to make sure all the mixture and the chips were combined. Then I placed the microwave bowl back into the microwave and cooked the contents on high for 30 seconds.Next  I took the bowl out of the microwave I  began to stir to make sure the chips were completely melted in with the peanut butter. Once I have completed this task then I poured the rice krispies in the bowl and stirred it up  making sure all the cereal was coated well. Let the Cereal mixture sit for about 8 minutes to cool down before you pour in the dark chocolate chips and Marshmallows, because you don’t want them to melt in the cereal.

Once the cereal mix has cooled down pour the remainder of the recipe in the bowl stir the ingredients all together, and then place in a 9×9 greased pan. I like to give this tid bit out when you go to push down on  the rice krispie recipe make sure you do not crush the cereal and make sure you do not use your hands to do this. When you use your hands they tell you to coat with butter all over so the mixture does not stick to your hands.  I have a better idea for you to use, take wax paper and put it over the pan and start to push down to bind the cereal and mixtures together. No mess with your hands and you just throw the wax paper away when your done .

Once you are done doing this task then set the pan in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour to set. Now you have an Avalanche! Its quick and easy to make and in the end so sweet !

Chocolate Cream Pie with cheese cake filling

Chocolate Cream pie with Cheese cake filling

 

How many of you must have chocolate ? I know I always have a weakness for it and always have something Chocolate in my house, my purse or my drawer at work. It seems to save the day or as I like to say give me super powers of energy. Today I realized I had a box of Chocolate pudding in my cupboard, and thought what can I do to spice  Chocolate Pudding . I love Chocolate pudding, but I get bored eating it just plain, so I thought what can I do to make it stand out. I noticed that I also had some cream cheese in my fridge and thought what am I going to do with this since we really never eat cream cheese unless I am making some kind of dip, or a cheese cake. Light bulb came on and I decided let’s see how cheese cake filling with Chocolate pudding would taste like. I had a frozen pie crust on my freezer that needed to be used so that saved me time to make the crust.  I like to use Marie Calendars Frozen pie crust when I am lazy and do not want to make my own pie crust. I also had some cool whip in the freezer which I forgot that I had so this was going to be perfect. I thawed out the pie crust, cool whip, and the cream cheese , the pudding was instant pudding so I did not have to cook it.  this recipe was easy and pretty much took like 15 minutes to make .

When my husband and sat down to have this desert we felt like it was a Marie Calendar pie. It was so incredibly good that I can’t wait to make it again.
