Avalanche Popcorn

I love quick and easy snack and treat ideas for on the go, gift ideas or after school snacks. I come from a family of popcorn connoisseurs, so when my good blog friend Ashton from Something Swanky asked me to take a look at her cookbook and do a review for her, I couldn’t WAIT to get my hands on it!

Let me tell you, this cookbook is where it’s at for all your popcorn needs; sweet, salty, savory, dessert, simple, fancy- you name it! This book has it all!

Narrowing it down to the one I wanted to share with you was tough! I seriously had like 10 different recipes bookmarked and took a poll with anyone I came in contact with. Finally I decided upon the one I am going to share with you today, Avalanche Popcorn.

The name, Avalanche, doesn’t really go into really any detail on its ingredients, but just know its amazing!

It combines white chocolate, peanut butter, rice krispie cereal (or any cereal like it), marshmallows and even more chocolate. It is seriously SO delicious and addictive!

Avalanche Popcorn... this popcorn is SO addicting. Which chocolate, peanut butter, marshmallows, crispy cereal and drizzled in milk chocolate- it is heavenly!

    Sounds incredible! I buy my white chocolate in bars. Any idea how "1 c." translates into weight in ounces?

  2. Andrea H

    How do you measure the popcorn? Unpopped? Or just use a 1 cup measuring cup and scoop out already-popped popcorn?

    1. Chef in Training

      It is 8 cups of popped popcorn or about 1/4 cup unpopped popped corn. Hope this helps :)

    OMG this looks SO good! Not sure I've ever had peanut butter with white chocolate before, but it sounds amazing!

    What would be a good substitute for the Rice Krispies? My daughter is gluten intolerant. Thank
