America’s best loved cookie – the Oreo – turned 100 on Tuesday.
Although it’s quite a celebration for anything to turn 100, it’s really amazing that we’re eating the same snacks as people did in 1912. With so much changing all the time (like technology and pop culture), food evolves at the pace of a snail in comparison.
So when I saw this post on Cookies & Cups for Nutter Butter Krispie Treats, I immediately thought of Oreos.
These treats are an ooey gooey, lick every last bit out of the pan, delicious treat. I made this for my friend Hillary’s birthday because she LOVES Oreos (and kid food). No joke, her favorite cake is the Funfetti mix from a box :)
Oreo Rice Krispie Treats
Inspired by Cookies & Cups
1 stick of unsalted butter
20 ounces marshmallows
12 Oreo cookies, crushed
8 cups Rice Krispies cereal
In a large pot, melt the butter; add marshmallows and continue stirring until melted. Turn off the heat and add Oreos and cereal. Spread evenly over a 9×13 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Let cool for 45 minutes before cutting (if you can wait that long :) )
Question: How do you eat your Oreos? I love licking out all the filling before eating each individual wafer. When we were kids, we’d roll our filling into a ball and save it for the end. Those were the days…
