No-Bake Cap'n Crunch Avalanche Cookies

No-Bake Cap'n Crunch Avalanche Cookies are a simple 5-ingredient recipe that comes together in just 15 minutes! Imagine creamy peanut butter fudge swirled with chocolate and speckled with Cap'n Crunch cereal and fluffy marshmallows. It's the ultimate treat. A creamy, fudgy, crunchy, peanut buttery treat that has the right touch of chocolate and is perfectly sweet! Hurry, you probably have everything you need to make this in your pantry!

We are so excited to be partnering with Safeway  to bring you another fabulous recipe.


We went absolutely nuts over this recipe and I know you will too. Everyone loves our No-Bake Avalanches Cookies and you know me. I have to tinker with our favorites and create new versions. So of course, I took our original recipe and amped it up and created our Rocky Road Avalanche Bars which are in our new cookbook: The Simple Kitchen. Available for pre-order now!

They are truly so amazing that I knew I needed to create another avalanche cookie recipe and when I saw that Cap'n Crunch cereal is apart of the #FuelURAdventure campaign at Safeway, I knew I found the perfect ingredient.

We have a Safeway right around the corner and shopping there helps me fuel my summer adventure with some of my favorite PepsiCo products like Quaker Cap’n Crunch, Lay’s Classic Potato Chips, Tostitos Scoops, Gatorade G2 Lemon Lime, Quaker Life Cereal, Aquafina bottled water and Veggie Harvest Tomato Basil and Cheese-flavored Sun Chips.

No-Bake Cap'n Crunch Avalanche Cookies

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
16 ounces  (about 2-1/2 cups) white chocolate chips
16 ounces (about 1-3/4 cups) honey roasted chunky peanut butter
3 cups Cap'n Crunch cereal
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows

Prepare 2 baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Set aside.

Place mini chocolate chips in the freezer, until ready to use.

Melt white chocolate chips in a large heat safe bowl, microwave 30 seconds at a time until melted and smooth, stirring between each interval.

Add peanut butter to the melted white chocolate chips. Stir until well mixed.

Add cereal to peanut butter mixture and fold in. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature (or until barely warm), if necessary. Mine was room temperature and didn't need to cool.

Fold in marshmallows and frozen chocolate chips, the chocolate chips will melt slightly and create delicious streaks of chocolate throughout your cookies. Don't overmix or the chocolate chips will complete dissolve.

Use a 2 tablespoon scoop to portion treats onto the prepared cookie sheets. Lightly press down on the top of each cookie with the back of the scoop to spread the cookie out.

Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes. Keep refrigerated for best results.

Serve and enjoy!

  1. Love this recipe. All our favorite things we love - sausage, bacon, eggs, cheese. Yum. For those afraid of making the bread dough or don't have the tools, use the frozen bread dough at your grocery store. I can hardly wait to try this.

  2. These look incredible! Yum, what decadent and delicious little confections.
