Almost have nothing to say about these latest Rice Krispies Treats creation of mine—because the pictures do all the talking. If you like Oreo cookies and particularly the Mint Filled Oreos, you’ll really like these Cool Mint Oreo Cocoa Krispies Treat!
I was inspired by a couple of things in my pantry. One was a bag of yet another Kraft marshmallows I’d found recently—chocolate mint.
I like them. They aren’t too chocolate minty, but were perfect for making these treats. My family must have liked the mallows, too—as I only had half a bag left because they thought they’d be perfect in their chocolate mint hot cocoa recently. So I made these Rice Krispies Treats with only half a bag of the chocolate mint ones and a whole bag of regular mini marshmallows. I also had some Cocoa Krispies cereal, so I used those, but regular Rice Krispies would be great, too!
So, besides having the chocolate mint marshmallows, I also just happened to have some Cool Mint Oreo cookies, too. I’m working on using things in my pantry! (Oh, I’ve still got lots of sweet goodies in my baking pantry, so stay tuned!) I’d bought the Oreos for just such a treat as these—and then, once again, my family started eating the cookies. So these treats actually don’t have as many cookies as I would have liked to put in them, but still plenty and if you make these—put as many Oreos as you’d like!
Cool Mint Oreo Cocoa Krispies Treats, by Katrina, Baking and Boys!
10.5 ounce bag of regular mini marshmallows
4 ounces (1/2 a bag) Chocolate Mint Marshmallows (if you can’t find them, just use more mini marshmallows)
7 1/2 cups, (310 grams) Cocoa Krispies cereal (regular Rice Krispies would be fine, too)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
16 Cool Mint Oreo cookies (or more, if desired), roughly chopped
Line a 9x9 inch pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine all the marshmallows and the butter. Microwave in 30 second intervals until all melted. (It only takes a minute to a minute and a half.) Stir with a wooden spoon. Add the cereal and stir together until combined. Fold in the cookies. Spread the mixture evenly in the pan and press down evenly. (I use a flat potato masher that is lightly sprayed with cooking spray—it works perfectly!) Let set at room temperature for an hour or two. Remove from pan with foil edges. Peel off foil and cut into desired size pieces on a cutting board.
