Cookies n' Cream Rice Crispy Treats

Growing up, my mom often made rice crispy treats. It is a great quick treat on a weekday. She would make them in a pan, and flip them over into a plate when done. We'd have a round rice crispy treat covering an entire plate. My favorite way to eat is when it is just done and still warm. Grab a piece and pull it off to see the marshmallow stretch like cheese.

I've been thinking of how to step up this treat. I've seen Oreos added into desserts such as ice cream, frosting, pies...Oreos are great to add to these treats. The chocolate cookie blends well with the cereal crunch and the cream filling with the marshmallows.

Directions

3 cups chocolate cream filled cookies, broken into small pieces
1/4 cup butter
10oz mini marshmallows
3 1/2 cups Rice Crispy cereal

Melt 1/2 cup butter in a pan at low heat.

Pour marshmallows into the pan and continue folding until all marshmallows have melted.


Remove pan from heat. Blend cookies and cereal into the marshmallows to coat evenly.

Line a casserole dish with parchment paper to avoid treats sticking to the dish. Spread mixture into the dish.
Wait about 15 minutes so that it is slightly cool. Cut into squares and enjoy the chocolate creamy gooeyness!
