"Firework" Oreo Rice Krispie Treats

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.
Stir constantly.
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.
White chocolate is VERY sensitive and only needs a light simmer (from the water below) to melt.
Stir constantly.
...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!!
