Oreo Rice Krispie Treats

Oreo Rice Krispie Treats

Sometime last fall I bookmarked Ingrid's ( at the  3B's) recipe for Rice Krispie treats with Oreo cookies.  I made these for several reasons:  1.My family loves Rice Krispie treats  2. I am not a Rice Krispie treat eater   3. I could satisfy my need to make something awesome and  4. Not add more calories to my day, because remember I don't like Rice Kirspie treats.  Needless to say item 4 didn't  quite work out. These sweet chewy marshmallows bars  with  chunks of Oreo cookies mixed in were a big hit with everyone. Like Ingrid, I think that you need to be generous with the marshmallows.

Oreo Rice Krispie Treats
3 Tablespoons butter
 5-6 cups mini marshmallow, or more
6 cups Rice Krispies
Oreo cookies  broken into chunks, about 1/2 a package, no strict measurement required.

 In a large bowl  melt butter and marshmallow in the micro wave, stiring until mixed together.  Add the Rice Krispies and Oreo chunks stir to combine. Press into a greased 9x13 pan. Cut into bars of what ever size you want.
