Meal Plan Monday 12/3 & Oreo Rice Krispies

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

directions:

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.

Oreo Cookies in Rice Krispy Treats…Genius!

Crabby boys, sleepy mama and working on two different projects meant this post didn’t get finished yesterday.

Tis the season for baking!!  I could really go for some Christmas cookies right now.  Wink, wink.

It is apparent the holiday season is upon us if you have been to Pinterst lately.  There are all sorts of wonderful Christmas cookie/dessert recipes and decorating ideas.

I found one last night that I just HAD to share!  Peppermint Oreo Krispy Treats, that’s right Oreo cookies in marshmallow goodness.  Can you say super yummy!  I haven’t made them yet, but I plan to this weekend to take to our friends house when we get our Christmas tree.

I don’t repin recipes to Pinterest, I just save them in my Plan to Eat recipe book.  That way when I want to cook them it is easy to add to my meal plan and shopping list.

Since I haven’t made them yet I don’t have a picture to show you and I didn’t want to steal the authors, so here is my mixer which will get plenty of use this holiday season.

Happy Baking
