So on a different topic--food-- My husband has potlucks at work every so often and he usually brings in an entree since most people sign up for desserts, chips and soda (which is a perfect potluck for me (esp. the desserts part)...but for him not so much). But since this was the last potluck of the year and I haven't baked anything in a reeaaallly long time, I suggested...ok begged...him to let me bake him a dessert to take.
I always like to research different recipes, usually picking out the dessert with the most chocolate, like this one.
But instead I thought of my husband (I guess there's a first time for everything..haha...just kidding) and decided to make rice krispy treats. How boring, you say?! Not when you add some of these:
Oreo's are one of my favorite cookies (although all cookies are good)...and they are super chocolatey which is always a plus. Here is what the treats look like pre chocolate drizzle:
And post chocolate drizzle (oh yeah...there has to be more chocolate than just the cookies...duh!):
And of course the hubby got to lick the spatula (this doesn't look staged at all...):
Here's the recipe...enjoy!
Cookies and Cream Krispy Treats
From: How Sweet It Is
3 tablespoons butter
6 cups rice krispies cereal
4 cups mini marshmallows
10 oreos, chopped (I think I doubled the recipe here...but I'm an addict)
In a large pot over low heat, melt butter. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Pour in rice krispies cereal and chopped oreos, and coat completely with marshmallow mixture. Press into a 9 X 13 baking dish and let cool.
Once cool, melt chocolate chips and drizzle over bars.
