Chewy Cookies & Cream Bars

I have been following the most amazing blog for a while now. This girl (Jenny) never ceases to amaze me. Her creations are awesome. Go check out Jenny at Picky Palate if you have a chance. I saw these no bake cookies and knew they would be a hit with my family and an easy thing to make with my daughters. They are kind of like a rice krispie treat but with Oreo's instead of cereal. It's a funny coincidence but as soon as she posted this recipe I started to think about other cookies that would be good in the place of the Oreo. Nutter Butter's came to my mind first and wouldn't you know it that the very next day she posted the same recipe with Nutter Butter's. I guess we were on the same wave length. I will try those in the very near future. These are so easy to make with only 3 ingredients and no cooking and are ready to devour super fast. Enjoy!

Chewy Cookies & Cream Bars
Recipe Source Picky Palate

16 oz package Oreo's
5 cups large marshmallow's (1 whole package minus about 7)
4 Tbsp. Butter

Place Oreo's in a food processor and process until ground up.

Put the marshmallow's and butter in a large microwavable bowl and microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes until puffed and melting.

Remove and add the Oreo crumbs, stir to combine really well (and work fast). Pour the mixture into a 8x8 baking pan lined with foil. I sprayed the foil with cooking spray to insure they would come out clean. Pan down to smooth top. Let sit for 10 minutes or so until firm. Remove the foil and cut into bars.

Here is my taste tester. She is an expert.

This makes about 9 large bars. Double for a crowd or potluck.
