Chocolate Oreo Rice Krispies Treats in the Microwave (aka “baking” with no kitchen)

A church near our house hosted a Strawberry Festival last weekend. I was checking out the website and I found out they were also doing a bake sale and looking for people to donate baked goods. Of course I wanted to help out, but there was one minor problem… Oh right, we have no kitchen right now! Well I started thinking about things I could make with just my box of baking supplies and a microwave. A came across quite a few recipes and decided on these Oreo Rice Krispies treats. Who wouldn’t love these?

And I found out that Hubby apparently really loves Rice Krispies Treats. He said he’d only ever had plain ones, but I think I may have converted him to loving them with something mixed in. I used a 9×13 pan because I like mine thicker. And I cut them fairly large since they were for a bake sale. I got 12 our of each 9×13 pan.

They came together in a snap. I used the cabinets which are still in boxes as counterspace and the hardest part was cleanup. Washing big bowls in a bathtub is NOT fun!

Chocolate Oreo Rice Krispies Treats – from Recipezaar1/3 cup butter or margarine
5 cups mini marshmallows – I used a package of regular marshmallows
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 cups Rice Krispies
15 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped – I just threw them in a ziploc bag and crushed them with my hands

Butter an 11 x 7-inch pan (I used 9×13).

In a large microwave-safe bowl heat the butter or margarine with marshmallows and cocoa powder on HIGH powder for 3 minutes, removing after stirring each minute.

Mix in vanilla then add in the cereal and chopped Oreo cookies; mix with a wooden spoon until well coated.

Transfer to prepared pan then press down with back of a spoon to spread evenly.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then cut into squares.

    Aw, I didn’t realize you hadn’t gone to the swap! What a bummer. But then at least you didn’t have to share these cookies. 😉

    I’m not sure I’ve had chocolate & cinnamon together before but I bet the combination is great! And if it’s in an oatmeal cookie, you can’t really go wrong.

    These look wonderful! I’m sure being stuck in the house with a whole batch of them made you feel a little bit better, right? I love cookies with cinnamon chips in them!

    These look so delicious. Getting sick on important (dessert related!) events is the absolute worst. I think another cookie swap is in your future.
