Easy No-Bake Candy

I had this candy a few years ago at a Christmas party and went home and immediately tried to replicate it. This candy is a real crowd-pleaser. It is creamy and crunchy without being overly rich. I could eat a ton of these little things. This is very easy to put together and it makes a ton. Make a batch and share it with your friends!

How to Make White Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispies

These candies are super easy to make. You actually make them in the microwave! Woohoo! NO candy thermometer required.

Place cereal, peanuts, and marshmallows in a large bowl. In a microwave-safe bowl combine white chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave until the chips and peanut butter has melted. Pour the mixture over the cereal. Stir to combine. Drop the candy on some wax paper or parchment paper and let the candy cool and set up.

  • Store cooled candy in an air-tight container.
  • The candy will keep 1 to 2 weeks.
  • Can use white chocolate chips or white chocolate bars.
  • I used smooth peanut butter, but crunchy peanut butter will work fine.
  • I used Planter’s dry roasted peanuts. Feel free to substitute cocktail peanuts.
  • You can make the candy drops as large or as small as you wish.
  • For a gluten-free dessert, make sure to use a gluten-free brand of rice krispies.

No-Cook Dessert for Christmas

These little candies are AH-MAZ-ING! They are great for parties and gift giving. I always make a batch at the holidays and give them as gifts. They only take a few minutes to make and everyone LOVES them!

I came up with this recipe way back in 2009. I’ve noticed in recent years someone on the internet made these and renamed them No-Bake Avalanche Cookies. Whatever you call them, just make them! You won’t be disappointed!

  1. These do look fabulous but I just wanted to put it out there that if you are looking for a gluten free version don't use regular Rice Krispies as they have barley malt.
    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. These are pretty amazing, delish but rich. Fortunately for me I could only eat one! Mine are keeping nicely in a sealed container, on an unheated Central NY porch. My husband hates marshmallows and didn't even notice they were in there. My blobs yielded about 72 cookies, using not an overflowing silverware tablespoon. :0)

  3. I just wanted to say that this would totally be gluten free if you stuck with the krispies! So hard to find something yummy and gluten free cookie wise. No substitutes needed. Sensitivities vary, but as long as none of the ingredients are processed along side grains, this should be safe for GFers.

  4. Does anyone know about how many tablespoon sized clusters this recipe makes? I can't decide if I want to double the recipe or not.

  6. Nancy – I'm not a marshmallow fan either, but they taste good in this recipe. If you want to leave them out, you can just increase the other ingredients a little bit.

  7. Hi there. Can you suggest something to use instead of marshmellows? My daughter doesn't like them. Iwould love tomake this for Thanksgiving.
