I admit it, I have fallen into the craze of the book series Fifty Shades of Grey. I wasn’t sure I would like it, but once I moved past the all of the sex, it is quite an intriguing story of love. A word of caution though, do not start this book in public. I made the mistake of starting on a crowded plane, and was constantly looking over my shoulder to make sure no one was looking at what I was reading.
As you can tell by my title, I have neglected everything around me while immersed in these books. Just coming home from a 4 day weekend alone, that was not very fair to my husband or children.
In an attempt to make it up to them, I decided to make them an unsual dessert in the Seaside household. Now, you are probably thinking how the hell are rice krispie treats unusual. Let me tell you. Even though I consider myself a pretty good self-taught baker, there are two things I cannot make for the life of me. Rice krispie treats and rice in a pan. Yup, that’s right, two of the most simplest of things, ever.
This time I decided to do something totally unusual, follow a recipe. And dog-gone-it, it worked! I actually made edible not overly soggy rice krispie treats!!!! Since my children love Oreos, I decided to through some in, in hopes of them forgiving me for the last 3 days of neglect. I am happy to say it worked!!!
- 20 oreos , crushed
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 10 ounces of marshmallows
- 6 cups of rice krispies
- 6 ounces of melted white chocolate
- Generously spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
- Crush your Oreos in a ziploc bag. Melt butter and marshmallows in heavy-bottomed sauce pan. Once melted, remove from heat and add the rice krispie cereal and 3/4 c of the crushed Oreos. Mix until combined.
- Pour mixture into the baking dish.
- Spray your fingers with non-stick spray and evenly press down.
- While the treats are cooling, melt your white chocolate (either in your microwave or over a double stove).
- Once melted, pour onto treats and spread evenly.
- Sprinkle remaining Oreo crumbs.
- Cool for 10-15 minutes and cut into small squares.
