Who doesn't like cookies and cream? Marshmallow cream that is. Today I am giving you my spin on the old standby, rice crispy treats.
Here's what you will need:
- 1/2 c butter (This can be reduced...but they won't be nearly as soft and gooey. I never said this was a health recipe!)
- 8 c crisp rice cereal (off brand works just as well as name brand)
- 8 c mini marshmallows (If you don't have minis and don't want to stand at the stove for an hour while the big ones melt, spray a pair of kitchen scissors with cooking spray and then snip larger marshmallows down to size! I actually used the GIANT campfire marshmallows when I made this because that was what I had on hand.)
- 2 c coarsely chopped oreos (Call me weird, but I like to take the filling out and discard it...but it certainly won't hurt to keep it in)
From here, it is basic marshmallow treat making technique. Melt your butter in a large, two handled pan. Add the marshmallows. Stir until it is one semi-fluid, ooey-gooey fluff. Remove from heat. Stir in the cereal and cookies. Simple.
Pour into a greased 9x13. Rub a little cooking spray on your hand and then press into an even layer. Wait for it to cool for about 5 minutes and then cut into 2x2 inch squares.
Peanut-butter: Reduce butter to 1/4 c. Add 1/3 c peanut butter when you add the marshmallows.
Chocolate lovers: Stir in a 1/2c of your favorite chocolate chips right before pouring into the pan. Or melt them and drizzle on top. Either way, YUM!
