So today I’m making myself comfortable in my new apartment! I’m actually writing this on Monday, I didn’t want to miss out on posting this awesome recipe. It’s a for sure crowd pleaser and it’s one of the easiest things I’ve ever made to date. Word of warning — plan to take these to work or to send them with your kids to school, you (or your significant other) will eat them all if not. It’s true! 😉
The night I made these, I think handsome man had 3 bars, held off on the fourth until the next day. I think between two days I was able to hold off on just 1 a day. I brought the rest into work and most of the guys were pretty upset there were none left to have as an after lunch dessert. I then proceeded to tell them how easy it was to make these and they used the excuse that their kids will love them to be able to indulge a bit more.
Truthfully, kids will love them. It’s a really great treat for kids, you could even make them together. It requires no oven and really not much work. It’s a great substitute for Rice Krispies Treats, hence my renaming of “Oreo Krispies”. They actually have the same consistency, crispy Oreo cookies, but I think the taste far supersedes that of the same old Rice Krispies Treat. I’m serious! That good.
No Bake Cookies & Cream Bars “Oreo Krispies”
recipe from Sweet Peas Kitchen
One 16 oz package of Oreo cookies
5 cups marshmallows (1 whole bag)
4 tablespoons butter
Butter an 8×8 baking pan, or if you’d like a 9″ cake pan (what I used). Set aside until needed.
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse Oreos until ground.
In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt butter and marshmallows in the microwave until puffed, about 2 minutes. Stir in ground Oreo Cookies until combined. Transfer to prepared baking pan. Using a piece of wax or parchment paper, press mixture evenly into prepared pan.
Let set up for at least 10 minutes. Cut into bars and serve.
Yields approx. 16 bars.
