cookies and cream rice crispy treats

last week i made cookies and creme cupcakes for my univ100 students since we had our first class on wednesday.  i had some leftover oreos which was perfect because i had been eying up a recipe on picky palate, cookies and cream rice crispy treats.  doesn’t that sound amazing?  well let me tell you, it is.  i love the chocolatey addition of the oreos in one of my favorite desserts, rice crispy treats.  this is a deliciously simple, quick and easy dessert that everyone will love.  yum!

note: i didn’t have quite enough mini marshmallows but i did have some marshmallow creme.  here’s a great little conversion chart for regular marshmallows, mini marshmallows, and marshmallow creme:

  • One 7oz. Jar of Marshmallow creme = 2 cups of miniature marshmallows
  • One large marshmallow = 10 miniature marshmallows
