Maybe I am just inept or something… I had a hard time with this recipe, and I mean the recipe is only 3 ingredients! I did make 2 batches, and found it easier the second time…so I think I am just a bit slow. Why did I do two batches? Because who in their right mind feel that 9 bars would satisfy their hunger? Haha, just kidding. I did two batches because I was making them for class (flashback to elementary when you brought stuff for your birthday). How funny that in my later years in college I still feel the need to bake things for class? Anyway, here’s the webby:
One 16 oz package of Oreo
5 cups Large Marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter
1. Place Oreos in food processor and pulse until ground. Melt marshmallows and butter in microwave until puffed, about 1 1/2- 2 minutes. Remove and pour in ground Oreo Cookies. Stir to combine then transfer to a foil lined 8×8 inch baking pan. Let set up for 10 minutes. Remove bars out of pan with edges of foil and cut into squares.
Okay, maybe it is because I never made rice crispy treats when I was little, so I never had the experience of working with melted marshmallow….but this was MESSY!!! Marshmallow make a very unknowingly strong glue. I was stuck to some of the utensils that I was using to mix the crumbs with the goo. Also, I got distracted (which is really easy for me to do…seeing how I started this post at 11am and now it’s an hour later and I still haven’t posted)… and I let the marshmallows overflow in the microwave. Haha, all in all it was a fail on my part. I really wanted to try them last night to make sure they would be good for class today, but stupid me put my teeth whitening strips on before I finished making the bars, D’oh! I think the strips are working too, if any of you have ever thought about using them. Anyway, I do have pictures, but my phone is being dumb (yes all of my pictures come from my iPhone… LOL), so I will post those later. I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of good smells and good times! Happy cooking!
PS: My Professor wouldn’t eat them. He asked other people if they were burnt brownies…I thought that was a little rude, but hey everyone seemed to really enjoy them, so he missed out 😛
