I’m a computer serial killer. I should be paid for my skills, but unfortunately, they end up costing me . . . big time. A couple years ago my laptop died, and a couple had died before it. The clock battery wore out, and even the people at Geek Squad were like “yeah, I wouldn’t bother fixing it.” So Dad picked up a new one for me. Same brand, nicer model. And pretty much exactly two years later, guess what. It died.
Well, okay, it’s on life support. And I need it to hang in there until I can find the time to set up my new one. And with several promising writing projects and lots of blog posts in the pipeline, it might be a little while. I’ll also be setting up Mom’s new computer, as hers ran the no longer supported Windows XP. Apparently she has a computer green thumb.
I have a sneaking suspicion the clock battery is the culprit this time too. But did I get a different brand this time? Nope. The reason? Apparently in the two years since I made my last computer purchase, most manufacturers have eliminated the CD/DVD drive. WHAT????
I cannot be without a CD/DVD drive. I can’t do it. I run vital computer programs via disc – hello Final Draft and Microsoft Office. And I sometimes still burn CDs. There I said it. I’m the loser without an iPod (not that I want one – I know I wouldn’t use it); I jam to awesome mix CDs. Here’s to hoping I can keep this computer alive and kicking for more than two years . . . but I’m not gonna hold my breath.
After a long, busy week, this Sunday Supper theme of Five Ingredient or Less Recipes was more than welcome. I also made this a no-bake treat. These Golden Oreo Rice Krispies Treats are easy to make and crazy good. Whenever I make Rice Krispies Treats, I like them, but they don’t live up to my lofty expectations. These? Oh, those expectations are in their Golden Oreo cookie crust dust. These are what Rice Krispies are meant to taste like.
A no-bake Golden Oreo crust that will melt in your mouth sits under the gooiest, chewiest, softest Rice Krispies Treats you’ve ever tasted. That’s because I used a little extra butter and a much higher marshmallow to Rice Krispies ratio. I used Marshmallow Crispy Oreos to intensify that cereal treat flavor, but traditional or Mega Stuf Golden Oreos will work just as well. I think I’ll need another batch of these to keep me company while I set up my new computer.
25 Marshmallow Crispy or Golden Oreos
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
10 Marshmallow Crispy or Golden Oreos, coarsely chopped
1 10 ounce bag mini marshmallows
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
3 ¼ cups Rice Krispies
Line an 8 inch square pan with parchment. Make the crust. Place the Oreos in the bowl of a food processor and process until ground into crumbs. Pour into a bowl and stir together with butter until fully coated. Pour into the prepared pan and press down firmly to form a crust in the bottom of the pan. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, until firm.
After the crust has chilled, make the treats. In a large microwave safe bowl, place marshmallows and butter. Microwave on high in 30 second increments, stirring in between to promote melting and prevent burning, until fully melted. Add Oreos and Rice Krispies and stir until fully incorporated. Pour the treat mixture on top of the crust. Spread into an even layer and press down firmly with hands. Refrigerate at least 30 more minutes to set before cutting into bars and serving. Treats may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature for about an hour.
Additional chilling time is necessary
