Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats

When I came across these amazing looking rice krispie treats in Annie's blog a few weeks ago I knew that I had to make them. I had a few friends over for a cookout this past weekend and thought that it would be the perfect time to make these treats.


These rice krispie treats take a few additional minutes to make than the originals but are totally worth the extra time. The oreos mixed in and the white chocolate on top really make these crunchy treats delicious. All of my guests really enjoyed these and I will definitely be making them again.


Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats
As seen on:
Annie's Eats originally from Cast Sugar

Ingredients
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
10 oz. marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 cups Rice Krispies
20 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped
4-6 oz. white chocolate, chopped
Finely chopped Oreos, for topping

Directions
Place bittersweet chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted. Set aside. Grease a 9×13″ pan.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted and well combined. Turn off heat and stir in the melted chocolate and the vanilla extract. Gently stir in the Rice Krispies and coarsely chopped Oreos, and mix to coat evenly. Press the mixture into the prepared pan, leveling the top. (I like to use a piece of plastic wrap over my fingers and press it down with my hand.) Allow to cool completely.

Once cooled, cut into squares. Place white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, and stir until completely melted. Place the finely chopped Oreos in another bowl. Dip the top of each square into the white chocolate and then the finely chopped cookies. Set aside to cool and let the chocolate set completely. Store in an airtight container.
