Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treats without Gelatin {SRC}


It's Secret Recipe Club time again!  This month I was assigned Shockingly Delicious written by Dorothy.  I was so excited when I saw that I was assigned Dorothy's blog.  I have been following her blog for a few months now and had already bookmarked a couple of recipes to try!  But I still spent time to go through all her recipes and found some I will definitely be making in the future like this chili and her Chicken Teriyaki Meatballs.  I also have my eye on Dorothy's Green Tomato Chutney as our garden is overflowing with green tomatoes.  But in the end I chose Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treats to make for today's reveal.  My main reason was that Hasan's favorite cookies are Oreos and he also loves Rice Krispies Treats so it was a perfect combination.

I had Hasan help me make these one day after school and of course Bilal came running to help too.  I had them pour in the Rice Krispies and Oreo chunks while I mixed it.  Since I was making something that Hasan would love I had to picture them in Mighty Machines.  Anyone that knows Hasan knows he's crazy about Mighty Machines.

The boys loved them!  We served them to guests as well and they were also crazy about them!  I made some changes to the recipe.  I used Marshmallow Fluff instead of marshmallows.  The Halal marshmallows make very tough Rice Kripsies Treats.  When using Marshmallow Fluff you need to reduce the amount of Rice Krispies.  I also reduced the amount of Oreo Cookies and white chocolate to adjust the sweetness to our taste.  Thank you Dorothy for a great recipe!

Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats
Adapted from Shockingly Delicious

1 jar Marshmallow Fluff
5 cups Rice Krispies
4 tbsp unsalted butter
12 Oreo Cookies, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup white chocolate chips (can increase to 1 cup)
8 Oreo Cookies, processed in a food processor or chopper until powdered

Grease a 9x13 baking dish and set aside.  I lined my non stick cake pan with foil and then sprayed with some oil.

In a large pot on medium-low heat, melt butter.  We want to brown the butter.  First it will melt, next foam.  The butter will become a clear golden and then brown.  Stir frequently and keep a close eye on it so it doesn't burn.

Reduce heat to low and add the marshmallow fluff.  Mix well.  Next remove from heat and add the rice krispies and coarsely chopped Oreos one cup at a time.  Transfer to the prepared baking pan and spread.  Press down with a spatula.

Melt the white chocolate and spread on top.  Sprinkle the Oreo "dust" on top.  Press lightly.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Then put in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.  This will make it easier to cut.

Cut into squares and enjoy!

  5. Oh yummy! I love how I could easily make these gluten free! Does using marshmallow fluff work better than using actual marshmallows?

    1. Thank you! My oldest son loves Mighty Machines...we basically have a construction site in our home :) He loved these treats so I had to make the picture represent him :)

      I find marshmallow fluff difficult to get out of the jar...it's very sticky. You can hop over to Dorothy's blog to see the original recipe where she uses store bought marshmallows. With fluff you need to reduce the amount of rice krispies. I used it b/c it is gelatin-free.
