For my first post back in over two weeks, I thought I might as well start off with a bang. Or, you know… what I like to call a cannibalistic treat. I’m going to try hard to only use one Hannibal Lecter quote in here.
Obviously I’m not in the business of cooking up people. I’m talking about some delicious Krispy-on-Krispy action here.
Did anyone get a chance to go out and try the new Oreos yet?! I hope you did, because they are so darn hard to find! Oreo came out with a ridiculous line of special edition (so rude… just like the Disney Vault… now they’re GONE!) flavors: Cookie Dough, Lemon, and MARSHMALLOW CRISPY. They are amazing! I have only tried the flavors with vanilla cookie- since Dave doesn’t like regular Oreos (WTF, right?!!) and they are bomb.com. <List of the top Oreo Flavors!>
Besides eating an entire sleeve of these babies this month… I bought another package to do something special. Yes, remember where I”m going with this? Something cannibalistic. I had to try to make Marshmallow Crispy Oreo Rice Krispy Treats. WOW.
You might wonder why the sudden sweet tooth?! The inspiration for this outrageous dessert came from my awesome Secret Recipe Club partner, Katrina from the blog Baking and Boys. Katrina does it all- she is a wife and a mother of FOUR boys… she cooks amazing food and even bakes (I could NEVER! So Impressed).
Forget what my Secret Recipe Club is? Every month, we are assigned a new blogger. We get to pick ANY recipe that blogger has written about and cook it up ourselves. We can make adjustments according to our tastes too. All of the bloggers post their results on the same day and we all get to see who had who and more importantly, what delicious dishes were made! This month was so difficult since Katrina is so creative! I had to pick her Oreo-Krispy-M&M mashup. It just sounded too good to be true.
Krispy Oreo Rice Krispy Treats
6 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1 (10oz) bag Mini Marshmallows
15 Marshmallow Crispy Oreos
1/2 cup spring M&Ms
1. Cover a 9×13 baking dish with foil, hanging over the edges and prepare with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Chop the Oreos. Combine oreos and cereal in a large bowl. Set aside.
3. In a non-stick saucepan, melt the butter, then add the marshmallows. Stir over low heat until marshmallows have melted and are combined with the butter. Dump the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir quickly with a sturdy rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Add M&Ms.
4. Dump the Krispy mixture into the foil-lined baking dish and either use your hands or a potato masher to spread and smooth out. Let sit for an hour, then remove using the foil, peel off the foil, and cut into squares. Enjoy!

YUM! I had wayyyy too many of these! They are awesome! I never had Krispy Treats with oreos AND M&Ms… the opportunities are endless! I am dying to try to make these with the Peppermint Oreos when they are in season like Katrina made- yum!
