How to Make Oreo Rice Krispie Treats
Yield: 12 Squares
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients for Oreo Rice Krispies
5 Tablespoons Butter
40 big marshmallows (a bag and a half)
6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
20 Regular Oreos, crushed
Directions for Ooey-Gooey Oreo Rice Krispies
Before you begin, you will want to cut your Oreos into pieces. There is no need to make the pieces the same size, so just chop them up and set aside, even the oreo dust!
In a large pan, melt the butter over low heat.
After the butter is melted, then add marshmallows to the pan and stir slowly. You will want to keep the heat on low so it melts slowly. This is the secret to perfect rice Krispies! This makes the rice Krispies stay soft and delicious.
Once the marshmallows are melted, remove from heat and add cereal and crushed Oreos (including oreo dust!)
Stir until the oreo rice Krispie treats are combined well.
Next, press your gooey Oreo Rice Krispies into a greased 13x 9 pan. These oreo rice Krispie treats will be gooey and sticky. A great way to handle the stickiness of the rice Krispie treats is to butter your spatula or spray it with cooking spray to help you press down the Rice Krispie treats.

- Be sure to melt your marshmallows on slow heat on the stove. This is the secret to the perfect rice Krispie treat. When you melt marshmallows on high or in the microwave your rice Krispie treats tend to be hard and dry out faster.
- Be sure to use cooking spray on your pan so your rice Krispies don’t stick, if you want to remove your rice Krispie treats easier, then you can line your pan with parchment paper or wax paper.
