My post the other day I shared a recipe I found for Peppermint Oreo Krispie Treats. Yesterday I made a version of them and HOLY COW! they were delicious!
Ian had some and calls them ‘Christmas teats’ and asked for them this morning when he woke up.
I didn’t have time to go to Trader Joe’s to get the peppermint Joe Joe’s so I just used regular Oreos.
Oreo Cookie Rice Krispie Treats
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
20 Oreo cookies, crushed/chopped (about 2 1/2 cups crushed)
6 cups mini marshmallows
4 Tablespoons butter
some melting chocolate for drizzling
Mix the crushed cookies and Rice Krispie Treats in a large bowl. Grease a 9×13 inch pan, set aside.
Melt the butter and marshmallows over med-low heat until melted, adding marshmallows a cup at a time, stirring continuously.
OR Microwave the butter and marshmallows:
In another large, microwave safe bowl, add marshmallows and butter.
Microwave 2 1/2-3 minutes, or until the marshmallows are super fluffy, and melt together when stirred. Stir together, until the marshmallows and butter are fully combined.
Grease a spatula to use for mixing. Pour melted butter and marshmallow mixture over rice krispies and cookies. Using the greased spatula mix until fully combined.
Very quickly pour mixture into greased pan spreading and flattening with greased spatula.
When treats are cooled drizzle with melted chocolate. Allow chocolate to set before cutting.
Use greased cookie cutters to make fun shapes.

I’m making a blog visit from Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday today.
Look at your little helper. We started our son cooking and baking when he was very little. He still enjoys both now that he’s 20 years old.
I have lots of chicken in the freezer so I’m always looking for tasty chicken recipes.
It’s a sunny and warm day in Las Vegas. I’ve been living on the West coast for 18 years. It’s funny when friends, from Maine, will mention that they’re shoveling snow I caught off guard. That’s right, you’re dealing with snow!
Hope you have a wonderful and delicious week!
