Rice Krispie Treats, Reimagined

I believe just about anything can be improved by adding Oreo cookies (have you seen my Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies?!), and rice krispie treats are no exception. These cookies and cream rice krispie treats are super easy to make, perfectly chewy, and of course, full of Oreos!

You’ll love how quickly these come together, and since we’re officially in the “dog days” of summer, they make a fantastic no-bake dessert too. Like my classic rice krispie treats, we’ll reserve ⅓ of the marshmallows to add in at the end; this gives us chewy bits of marshmallow in the final result that contrasts (in both color and texture) so nicely with the Oreos.

You’ll love this recipe because it’s:

  • Quick: just 15 minutes from start to finish.
  • No-bake: these come together on the stove.
  • Easy: we’re essentially just melting and stirring–so simple!
  • Plentiful: this recipe yields 20 rice krispie treats. It’s perfect for parties!

What You Need

Besides the basics (mini marshmallows and rice cereal), here’s what you need to make these cookies and cream rice krispie treats:

  • Oreo cookies. You can use regular or “double stuf” Oreos. Break them up until they’re crushed, but don’t pulverize them–we want pieces of cookies, not crumbs!
  • Vanilla extract. A teaspoon of vanilla extract (homemade vanilla extract would work well here!) really compliments the Oreos and adds an additional depth of flavor.
  • Salted butter. Typically my recipes use unsalted butter, but I’m recommending salted butter today. If you don’t have salted butter, simply add ¼ teaspoon of salt in with the vanilla. If you can find European-style butter, that’s even better!

Remember, this is just an overview of the ingredients I used and why. For the full recipe please scroll down to the bottom of the post!

How to Make Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats

  1. Break your Oreos into pieces.
  2. Place the crushed cookies into a strainer to strain out the crumbs, if desired.
  1. Melt the butter in a pot, then add 10 oz of marshmallows and cook until melted.
  2. Add the vanilla, then stir in the cereal until combined.
  3. Add the remaining marshmallows and Oreo cookies and stir until just combined.
  4. Press the mixture into a greased pan and let cool before cutting and serving.
