My 2 younger sisters!
Cookies & Cream Rice Krispie Treats were pretty good. I LOVED the texture of cookie chunks, it's a great contrast to the chewier cereal part of the treat. I'm not a huge fan of chocolate, though, and would probably make these again without mixing it in. I would also not use the white chocolate again. I just didn't think it gave them the 'cream' they needed, which makes me sad cause I adore white chocolate. Perhaps a vanilla buttercream frosting would be better? Nonetheless, they were still very good, very sweet treats that I would make again and again!
Cookies & Cream Rice Krispie Treats-Recipe from Cast Sugar
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate, chopped & melted
4 Tbsp unsalted butter
10 oz. marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
20 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped
4-6 oz. white chocolate, melted
Oreos for topping, crushed or finely chopped
Grease a 9×13-inch pan.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted and well combined. Turn off heat and stir in the melted chocolate and the vanilla extract.
Gently stir in the Rice Krispies and chopped Oreos, and mix to coat evenly. Press the mixture into the prepared pan. Pour the melted white chocolate over the Rice Krispie mix, and spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining oreos over the chocolate, covering completely. Allow to sit until cool and topping is set. Cut into squares and enjoy!
