Oreo Bars

Oreo, marshmallow, white chocolate, and a whole lot of love. What could be better?

Well not much, let me tell you that. Maybe cat cuddles or a cheesy pasta. But these Oreo bars are pretty hard to compete with, and they are rather easy to make and surely a crowd pleaser.

To make these guys you need a package of Oreos (whatever flavor you want is fine, but don’t do the double stuff/mega stuff variety, that’ll be too much stuff), a package of mini marshmallows, and a handful of white chocolate chips. Oh yeah, and like 4 table spoons of butter.

To start, crush the entire package of Oreos. I did it in a plastic baggie and ended up with varying sizes of Oreo crumbs, which actually worked to my advantage. If that’s not your kind of thing, you can throw them in the food processor until the Oreos are crushed to your heart’s content.

Set the Oreos aside and place the mini marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl.

Oh, and add the butter. And then put them in the microwave about for 45 second intervals until the marshmallows appear puffed and the butter is melted.

Quickly mix the crushed Oreos and a handful of white chocolate chips into the marshmallows.

Stir and stir and stir until things seem to be well mixed. Then stir some more.

Move the mixture to a prepared 9 by 13 pan (either parchment paper or butter to prevent sticky-ness), and let it set up for two or three hours before cutting and serving or packaging.

If you want to package these bars to give them as a gift, place a piece of parchment paper between each layer, and enjoy the look of pure joy on your giftee’s face. They will love these, I promise.

With the texture of a Rice Krispie Treat, but the taste of the Oreo, these bars are sure to be a popular sweet treat.
