Tales from a 20-Something's Kitchen.

One girl's mission to take on Pinterest. And win. And eat some great food in the process.

Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats


So, I’ve never actually made rice krispies by myself before. It was always with my mom for some bake sale or school event or whatever, so of course I was going to give them a shot.

And we all know it’s a fairly simple process, this one just adds crushed Oreos.

And everything was going great, until melting the marshmallows. To be fair, the recipe did say to use a big bowl because they marshmallows expand a lot in the microwave. I apparently just didn’t have a big enough bowl.

It was everywhere. In the microwave, all in the bowl, it was a giant mess.

So, I tried to salvage some, and then melted whatever I had left in the package.

Also, we make these with children?! What about when the hot marshmallow/butter mess gets stuck to your hands and it’s burning you?! And then you try and take it off and then it gets stuck and burns your other hand?!

Anyways. When all was said and done, I only got 8 bigger sized rice krispies, rather than the 24 the recipe was supposed to yield. And they dried out really quickly.

So for me, this recipe wasn’t worth how long it took me to clean everything. But, maybe someone else will have better luck!
