Thanks to everyone for the advice. I've been trying your many suggestions for keeping this little cutie pie safe from the "love" of her two year old brother. The past couple days have actually been significantly better and I am praying it is a pattern of good things to come.I made the mistake this afternoon of going to the store hungry. Never a good thing for me because somehow a package of Oreos magically appeared in my cart. When I got home, I knew I better do something with them before I ate them all. I decided to give these cookies a whirl and now I have a whole new problem. The leftovers are on top of my fridge calling to me.
These are a very indulgent form of a rice crispie treat and I loved indulging in them after dinner tonight! I will definitely be making them again, but probably just drizzle on the white chocolate instead of dipping them. They were amazing as is and I love how they look, but I prefer my crispie treats not quite so rich. If you love Oreos and rice crispie treats, you have to give these a try!
from Cast Sugar
1/2 C bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 Tb butter
10 oz bag of mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
6 C rice crispies cereal
20 Oreo cookies, roughly chopped
6 oz white chocolate, chopped
15 Oreo cookies, finely chopped
1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the bittersweet chocolate on high for 1 minute. Stir and heat for another 30 seconds if not completely melted. Set aside.
2. In a large microwave safe bowl, melt the butter on high for 45 seconds. Add the marshmallows and stir to coat them in butter. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir until smooth, then mix in the melted chocolate and vanilla.
3. Pour in the cereal and the 20 chopped Oreo cookies and mix until it is well coated with the marshmallow mixture. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and press down with damp hands. Allow cookies to cool and firm up, then cut into 16 pieces.
4. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate for 1 minute, then stir. Continue to heat in 30 second intervals until completely melted. Dip each individual bar in the white chocolate then into the remaining finely chopped Oreo cookies.
