Oreo Krispies are a classic treat kicked up with the addition of crushed Oreo cookies.
This is a basic recipe that my kids beg for. It’s ten minutes of effort. These Oreo Krispies don’t really seem homemade because of the help they get from the cereal and cookie aisles. But trust me, they taste infinitely better than the pre-made krispie treats you can buy in the store.
The basic krispie treat recipe needs a little extra oomph to really make them shine. I started with this recipe here and altered it a bit, including adding the crushed Oreo cookies. They are perfect. Extra thick with lots of marshmallow flavor.
Whip up a batch to take along on a picnic, pack in a kids’ lunchbox, or for a potluck dessert that is sure to please. Be sure and pin this recipe for reference!
- 5 tbsp butter
- 9 cups mini marshmallows divided
- 5 cups Krispie cereal
- 16 Oreo cookies crushed
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, mix together the Krispie cereal, crushed Oreo cookies and one cup of mini marshmallows.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
Add the remaining 8 cups of mini marshmallows and salt and stir into the melted butter. Continue stirring over medium heat until the marshmallows are completely melted into the butter.
Pour the melted butter and marshmallow mixture over the Krispie cereal mixture and gently stir with a rubber spatula until evenly combined.
Spread the Oreo Krispie mixture into a 9-inch square pan and press gently with the spatula to flatten the top.
Allow the Oreo Krispies to cool in the pan for about 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
