Steps To Make

Oreo Rice Krispie Treats Steps to make.

Step one. In a large pot (6 quart), melt the butter on medium/low heat. Add in the mini marshmallows or marshmallow fluff followed by the vanilla and maple syrup. One everything has melted together, turn heat to low.

Step two. Crush up Oreo cookies in hands over the pot, add to the marshmallow mix. Mix well and stir in rice krispie cereal. Mix well. Turn heat off.

Step three. Line a 9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper. Add the entire mix to the square dish. Lightly press down all the mix so it reaches every corner. Be careful to not press too hard, the harder you pack the treat mix, the harder it will be to bite through when serving.

Recipe FAQ’s

Can I make these without the Oreo cookies?

Yes, you can skip the cookies and just make regular old fashioned rice krispie treats.

Just use a plant based butter! Marshmallows typically do not have dairy.

Can I use large marshmallows?

Yes but they will take longer to melt together.

How long will these keep?

They will last in the refrigerator for up to 6 days. Freeze them for up to 2 months.

Pro tip, to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands when pressing it into the 9-inch square dish, use a peice of plastic wrap between your hands and the mix. Feel free to re-use the plastic to cover the treats.

    These are truly so good, I’ve made them 7 times in the past 2 months!

    1. I’m so happy to hear that! My husband requests them weekly 😉😂 thanks for letting me know.

  4. How much marshmallow fluff is required?
    Thank you
    Faith

    1. Hi Faith!
      I have the substitution amounts in the recipe under notes. Let me know if you have any more questions and I hope you enjoy!

    2. Is there a reason for the maple syrup in this recipe or can it be omitted? Does it help it to stick together or something? Just wondering because it seems like it’s almost unnecessary, like it might make it too sweet or just taste different. Just thought I should ask! Btw, this was the only oreo rice krispie treat recipe that I could find that had a marshmallow fluff option so thanks!

      1. Hey there! Yes you can omit the maple syrup, I love the flavor it brings but not necessary. Enjoy, let me know what you think.
