Remember the other day when I said I'm
a tad majorly behind on my 12 Weeks of Christmas posts? I warned ya, I'm linking up wayyyyyy back to Week 8 of The 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies and Sweets challenge. "Why?", do you ask? Why not just skip those weeks and catch up on the current week? Because even though I'm posting late, I don't want to have gaps where I didn't participate. I don't want to look back and see that I only participated in 8 out of the 12 weeks, and therefore don't truly have 12 Christmas goodies to share. I feel like I'm cheating the challenge a bit, and if someone searches for my "12 weeks of Christmas treats", I don't want them to be disappointed if they find less than that. Even though I am posting late, it's better late than never.
I couldn't get the best photo of these thingies. But they are oh-so-good! If you like marshmallow, I should say. PJ didn't like them very much because he doesn't love marshmallow. But I usually also don't love marshmallow either, but I loved these treats! Couldn't stop eating them.
Bakergirl says to use an 8x8 inch baking dish... I used a loaf pan because that's the closest thing I had to that. I thought about using my 9x13 but figured the loaf pan would work better. I also lined the pan with foil like the recipe said, but I didn't like how I had to peel bits of aluminum foil off of the treats when I cut it. Next time I would just lightly grease the pan with butter or spray so that the mixture wouldn't stick, and not use aluminum foil. I've adapted the recipe below to reflect that change. I also refrigerated the mixture so it would harden and be easier to cut. I did serve them more at room temp though so they wouldn't be so hard when eaten. I just wanted them hard at first for cutting purposes, but wanted a nice, chewy texture when served. You can refrigerate them before cutting if you want... it worked fine for me, but it's not stated in the original so use your own discretion. Either way, these treats are sure to please marshmallow and oreo-lovers. Fo sho!
No-Bake Cookies & Cream Treats
ever so slightly adapted from Bakergirl
- 1 (16 oz) package of Oreo cookies
- 5 cups (a 10 oz bag) of large marshmallows
- 4 tbsp butter
Spray or lightly grease a loaf pan or 8x8 inch baking dish and set aside.
Place oreo cookies in a food processor, several at a time, and pulse until crumbly but not ground.
Melt marshmallows and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl, about 1 and 1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and pour in the ground cookies. Quickly stir to combine, then transfer to the baking dish.
Allow to set for 15 minutes or more. Refrigerate, if desired, then cut and serve.Printable Recipe
And of course I love that they are no-bake. Makes life easier at times. After I do the prep work, all I have to do is stick it in the fridge or freezer and wait. Besides the fact that they are no-bake, they also only require three ingredients. No cooking required. Few ingredients. So delicious. The perfect treat!
