Oreo Rice Krispie Treats


I love different varieties of rice krispie bars - I can't even name a favorite (kind of like the varieties of banana bread!) - I love the cinnamon ones, the caramel ones, and now I love these too. I've had this recipe pinned for some time, and when this month's Improv Challenge was announced, I knew this would be the perfect entry. This month features dishes on the theme "Ebony and Ivory." Sing with me, now. We've got it covered here not only with oreos, but with marshmallows and white chocolate drizzle. I dare you to eat just one.

Start by placing the Oreos in a ziplock bag and chop them using a rolling pin or soup can. You want the Oreos to be a variety of sizes from chunky to finely crushed, so it's best to use this method and not a food processor.

Then, in a large Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows,


and cook, stirring constantly, until they melt together. Pour cereal


and chopped cookies


into the melted marshmallows mix well. Spread the mixture into a greased 9×13 pan.


Place the white chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave, using 50% power, for 45 seconds. Stir, then repeat once to melt the chips. Stir until smooth;


drizzle over the rice krispie treats.


Allow the bars to set, then cut.
