Oreo Krispie Treats:
Easy No-Bake Cookies
Oreo Krispie Treats require no baking and they are easy to
make. This variation of Rice Krispie Treats (the classic no-bake cookies that
are made from crisp rice cereal), the treats combine both chocolate crème cookies
and cereal, making them a favorite cookie recipe for kids. The dark chocolate
from the Oreos contrasts with white chocolate drizzle, allowing the treats to
stand out on a platter of cookies. The treats are also great in lunch boxes and
as an after-school snack.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Chilling time: 60 minutes
Makes about 54 bars
18-20 chocolate and white crème sandwich cookies, like Oreos
½ package (4 ounces) of cream cheese
¼ cup butter or margarine
1-10 ounce bag of marshmallows (about 40)
6 cups rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
2 ounces white chocolate melting candy or ¼ cup white
- Lightly grease a 13 x 9 baking pan.
- Using a food processor with a steel blade, crush the
chocolate sandwich cookies until fine. Slice cream cheese into the food
processor bowl. Pulse the cream cheese with cookie crumbs until the ingredients
are well combined. The mixture will be thick. Set it aside.
- Set butter in a large pan or Dutch oven over low heat. Once butter
is melted, add the marshmallows. Use a wooden spoon to stir the mixture
continually until the marshmallows are combined with the butter, melted and
smooth. Add the chocolate cookie crumb mixture to the pan. Stir until smooth.
Remove the pan from the heat.
- Stir the rice cereal into the mixture until all kernels are
coated. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and press it out evenly.
- Allow the bars to cool completely.
- Place the melting chocolate or chocolate chips in a
microwave-safe bowl. Heat the chocolate at 50% power for 30 second increments,
stirring it with a spatula in between cooking, until melted and smooth.
- Drizzle the melted chocolate over bars. Use a spoon to
drizzle the chocolate directly onto the cookies. Or spoon the chocolate into a
zip top bag, clip the corner, and squeezing it in more controlled patterns onto
the cookie surface.
- Allow bars to cool and drizzled chocolate to set. Cut into
bars. Store in an airtight container.
A Special Baking Tip
from The Elf
The cereal mixture for Oreo Krispie Treats, as for other
cereal bars, can be sticky. Use a piece of waxed paper to press the mixture into
the pan evenly with your hand so it doesn’t adhere to the wooden spoon or
