Even though I am... somewhere.... in my early 30's, I am still in love with little treats like these Oreo rice crispy treats. I love the mix of chewy, crunchy, and sweet. Plus, they are so quick and easy to make that my daughter can easily do almost everything herself. It makes the process so much more fun when we are craving something a little sweet.
I've also recently discovered a fun new way to bring more Oreo flavor to our bars. The trick is International Delight® OREO® creamer (found at Walmart which also conveniently does online grocery pickup). I never really thought about using creamer in a recipe before I saw a good friend of mine use it to make truffles. Mind. Blown. I love how they unexpectedly infused Oreo flavor in the best way possible so I can create a better treat.
I decided to give it a try with these Oreo rice crispy treats.
The trick is to get the right balance of creamer. Too much and your treats won't set right. It's not a bad thing, but can get a little messy when you are trying to eat it by hand. Too little, and you won't get that Oreo flavor infused throughout the treat. I find for the best results, you want to cook down the creamer a bit to concentrate the flavor.
After that, you make the treats as normal. I like to add a few crumbles of Oreo-ish cookies in the mix as well, then top with a few more crumbles. To finish the Oreo rice crispy treats, I add a bit of Oreo flavored drizzle which I make using white chocolate and more of the International Delight® OREO® creamer.
All.the.Oreo. Which is perfect if you are an Oreo fiend like me. And if that's true, then a side of YoCrunch® Lowfat Yogurt Cookies 'n Cream with OREO® Cookie Pieces would be the perfect snack situation.
How to Soften Oreo Rice Crispy Treats
Sometimes you may find that your treats end up a bit stiff, that usually happens if it isn't kept in an airtight container. The best way to soften them is a very quick trip in the microwave. Not enough to make it melt and fall apart, but just enough to soften the marshmallow again. I recommend about 10 - 15 seconds in the microwave. To prevent them from getting hard and keep them fresh, keep them in airtight containers. You can also add a piece of bread to ensure they stay soft.
Can Crispy Treats be Frozen?
Yes, you can freeze them! I often store the treats in the freezer if we plan on saving them for special occasions. Just leave them at room temperature for a few minutes to thaw and they will become soft and chewy again.
How Long do the Treats Last?
Oreo bars are best the same day, but you can keep them at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 - 5 days.
