Cookies and Cream Bars

My Oreo kick continues with these no-bake cookies and cream bar treats. Similar to a rice krispies treat, crushed Oreos are held together with marshmallows and butter.

The end result is a yummy, chewy, cookies and cream creation.

The recipe comes courtesy of Picky Palate. I love trying her recipes because they are usually quick and easy and very creative.

The hardest step is parting with an entire package of Oreos. I bought two to make the separation easier.

First, you crush the Oreos in a food processor. I didn’t want mine to be completely tiny crumbs, so I tried to crush them just for a few seconds so that there were no more big chunks.

Melt marshmallows and butter in the microwave. The marshmallows will poof up quite a bit when you first remove them.

Stir in the crushed oreos and set in a baking pan. Let them cool for a few minutes and you are done. Easiest. Recipe. Ever.

I could barely wait for these cookie bars to settle and cool before digging in. You can view the full recipe here.
