I call these "Firework" treats because they make a great 4th of July treat!
This recipe is just a slight SPIN on the classic Rice Krispie treat.
6 c. Rice Krispie cereal
20 oreo cookies, chopped
8 c. mini marshmallows
4 tbsp. butter
1/2 bag ghirardelli white chocolate chips
(not pictured: colored M&M's)
|Coarsely chop the oreos and place in LARGE bowl with cereal. Set aside.|
|In large saucepan, melt 4 tbsp butter and 8 cups mini marshmallows together.|
|Melt completely together.|
|Pour in cereal and oreos into large saucepan.|
Stir and combine.
|Pour in ANY type of colored M&M.|
(I used 4th of July colors)
|Pour into greased 9x13 casserole pan.|
|Use a buttered spatula to press and form into pan.|
Pour addt'l M&M's on top.
|Melt white chocolate in a double boiler.|
Place 3/4 cup water into pot. Bring to a light simmer.
THE WATER IN THE POT SHOULD NEVER BOIL.
White chocolate is VERY sensitive and only needs a light simmer (from the water below) to melt.
|...and VOILA...Melted white chocolate!|
|This is the consistency you will want.|
|Drizzle chocolate over Oreo rice krispie treats.|
|Let the chocolate set up and then cut into 24-32 bars depending on how big or small you want them.|
We're off to a 4th of July BBQ and I hope you are too!!
