We love rice krispy treats in this house.

In fact, we love them so much that I can’t even make them anymore.

Last time I made some, we ate the entire pan before the treats had even cooled or been cut.

 

 

Rice krispy treats are to Mr. How Sweet as shoes are to me. He just can’t get enough.

 

 

I love finding creative, delicious, more-chocolately versions of classic sweets, so I was incredibly excited to find this recipe on Picky Palate.

Sometimes I just visit Jenny’s site to torture myself. She comes up with such clever, simple and original concoctions, and more often than not they include sugar. I consider it a win.

 

 

Such a fun twist on a vintage treat.

Who doesn’t love cookies and cream?

 

 

Cookies and Cream Crispy Treats

from Picky Palate

3 tablespoons butter

6 cups rice krispies cereal

4 cups mini marshmallows

10 oreos, chopped

In a large pot over low heat, melt butter. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Pour in rice krispies cereal and chopped oreos, and coat completely with marshmallow mixture. Press into a 9 X 13 baking dish and let cool.

Once cool, melt chocolate chips and drizzle over bars.

 

 

 

 

Have a delicious Sunday!

    These look so good. I am pretty sure they will need to be removed from the house immediately after baking, otherwise I will eat them all!

    Such a quick and easy treat and yet the Oreos are a fun way to change up the regular treats! Can’t wait to try these

    Cookies and cream anything is the perfect treat! It is the same situation here with them not even cooling before they are dug in to! I love new twists on vintage foods!

    Ok, so i looked at these and thought “danger danger!” Because a rice krispie treat has the illusion of being somewhat healthy…these? notsomuch….. love them!

    I haven’t had a krispy treat in too long! And I haven’t made them since I was a wee tot with my Grandma. One of these days maybe I’ll make some. But more likely I’ll buy some at the store and think of how much better they’d be if you had made them.

    I would DEFINITELY eat the entire pan of those. I can’t be trusted with Rice Krispie treats of any kind. Why are they SO tasty? Sigh.

    Damn. Why didn’t I think of this before I made Oreo slightly-cheesy blondies earlier?

    (I was planning to make cheesecake brownie bars, but then I realised I only had 8 oz of cream cheese. I then switched to blondies with an oreo “crust”, but then I added about 1 oz of cream cheese, just for kicks. Wonder how it’d turn out… I haven’t tasted it yet :S)

    Thanks, though. I’ll know what to make next time for an end-of-year party at school. :)

    I made these last night, they were AMAZING, I ate half of the pyrex myself. One difference, my “chocolate drizzle” looked like little poop turds. Is there a certain kind of chocolate you use that works better? Do you have a piping bag or do you just use a ziploc and cut it?
