Golden Oreo Rice Krispies Treats #SundaySupper

Golden Oreo Rice Krispies Treats

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.

Golden Oreo Rice Krispies Treats

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.

Golden Oreo Rice Krispies Treats

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.

Golden Oreo Rice Krispies Treats

Golden Oreo Rice Krispies Treats

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 17 minutes

Yield: 9 large bars

Ingredients

Crust

25 Marshmallow Crispy or Golden Oreos

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Treats

10 Marshmallow Crispy or Golden Oreos, coarsely chopped

1 10 ounce bag mini marshmallows

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed

3 ¼ cups Rice Krispies

Instructions

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.

Notes

Additional chilling time is necessary

    So sorry about your computers. I would be eating of a lot of sweets to survive too. These Rice Kripsy treats looks and sound delicious. My kids would love them too.

  2. Yum! I love rice krispie treats and adding Oreo’s in it is such a great idea! I love your recipe!

  3. We are always up for a new twist on rice krispie treats! This one looks fantastic!

  4. Yum, these look amazing! I love homemade Rice Krispy treats!

  5. Laptops seriously never last very long. It’s like they get moved around and shuffled so much, they just die. Happens to me all of the time! As a side note, I think you can buy external CD/DVD drives that plug into your USB port for future reference 🙂

  6. ugh. laptops just break down so quickly!!! My computer is like….seriously….a miracle. It is a hunk of junk from circuit city that I got 6 years ago and it has had so many viruses and almost died SO many times….but somehow it is still working (so far. I frequently back up just in case lol). SO annoying that people are eliminated CD drives!! Sometimes I wanna watch DVD’s on my computer! Or get CD’s from the library and then import the songs onto my itunes so I don’t have to pay for music!

    anyway. THESE RICE KRISPIE TREATS-loooooove em! You are so creative and you pretty much did everything to make these the best ever.

    I feel your pain, I have been without a computer this week and it is torture. I can’t believe how dependant I have gotten without a computer I feel lost. I hope you are able to keep yours hanging on for a bit longer. I have never had rice krispie treats like this, such a fun twist.

    • Laura says:

      I would not be able to function without a computer. My phone helps a lot, but I couldn’t blog or do Pinterest or things like that. I hope you are back up and running with a computer soon!

  8. Liz says:

    Marshmallow Crispy Oreos??? I need to hunt these down! Great RKTs!!!

  9. I love these…they combine two of my most favorite sweet treats!!

  10. Shannon R says:

    Off to buy some golden oreos. If my husband asks it’s all your fault. Sheesh, these look awesome.

  11. What a great twist on the rice krispie treat! Love the crust..great idea!

  12. aah, can’t beleive how much we rely on technology. Your crispie treats look delicious.

  13. Tara says:

    You always make the yummiest of recipes and I so look forward in coming over for a visit!! Thank you!!

  14. You had me at Oreos, Laura =) Brilliant idea to bring Oreos into a crust and the Rice Krispies mixture…Thank goodness your mother’s computer is working. We would all have missed out on the how-to for some mighty tasty treats!

  15. oh my gawd, I love that you added golden oreo cookies to your rice crispy treats!! awesome!

  16. Ohh just hearing about your computers problems makes me cringe.
    I switched over to a Mac 2 years ago and it’s been heavenly!
    What a better world now. LOL

  17. Who doesn’t love a twist on a classic recipe? I’m sure my kids would devour these!
    Have a beautiful Monday Laura!

  18. Soni says:

    So sorry about your computer.But this yummy treat could cure any troubles 🙂 My kids will go crazy for this 🙂

  19. Katie says:

    Ooh – these look absolutely wonderful. I’ll take the entire tray, please!
    It is crazy how short the life of our tech devices truly is. Ipads/tablets, laptops, etc. – only a few years! The switch to no cd/dvd drive was kind of strange for me as well, but I kind of enjoy that I have my external drive now! I can use it with my laptop and my desktop, and leave it in the drawer when I don’t require it. I gladly made the switch for a lighter and slimmer computer in the end! But seriously…it was a strange transition to realize you can’t slide a dvd into your computer at first!

    • Laura says:

      I know, I could have gotten an external drive, but it’s just another thing to buy and store. Of course, next time I probably won’t have a choice. Thanks, Katie!

  20. Golden cookie dust. Mmmmmm…..

  21. Sarah says:

    How clever, I love it!

  22. Debbie Eccard says:

    And now there is a real issue with Internet Explorer. Don’t use it until Micosoft fixes it or you could have your computer taken over… Really glad I got an Apple this time.

    These treats are right up Scott’s ally!

  23. Rice Krispie treats made even better!

  24. Ugh sorry to hear about your computer woes!! Hope all gets better soon! And listen. I like oreos. I like rice krispie treats. Putting them together sounds pretty freaking fantastic!!

  25. Shaina says:

    Yum! I love those Golden Oreos…great idea for rice krispie treats!

  26. OhhEmmmGeeee all of these sweets are killing me. I need these in my life! I can foresee a TON of treadmill time in my future!!

  27. I may be the last person on Earth that has not tried golden Oreos but these treats are tempting me! I cannot be trusted unsupervised with a pan of rice krispy treats and I have the feeling I would do even more damage with these Oreos.

  28. A great quick, easy, krispie treat!

  29. Renee says:

    If there ever was an excuse to buy Golden Oreos this would be it. Yum!

  30. The clock battery can cause the death of a computer? Who knew! Good luck with your new computer. These look amazing! I love the addition of golden oreos. So yummy!

  31. Ugh, I hate computer issues. My laptop sounded weird a few weeks ago (I know that’s very vague). I asked my geek husband to look at it and he basically said “it’s old…it could go or not.” Super helpful (not). I’m not a risk taker so I bought a new computer, a desk top. It’s been 1 month and my laptop still works ok. Lol.
    Loving these super thick treats! Awesome combo that you cannot go wrong on. 🙂

  32. Congrats!! You’re being featured on Tasty Tuesdays!! http://thetiptoefairy.com/blog/2014/05/tasty-tuesdays-59.html
