No Bake Cookies and Cream Bars

I love a good Rice Krispy treat but I often want something different, not just the same ol' same ol'.  So I started thinking, why can't we just make them using different cereals or cookies, I know some people have made them with Fruit Loops and some even tried Cheerios but what about cookies???

I went in search and came upon this super quick recipe from Picky Palate, I knew what I wanted and it's exactly what she came up with, how neat is that?  This way I didn't have to worry about finding the right amounts or trying until I got the perfect recipe, it was all worked out there for me.  She has some amazing recipes too so be sure to stick around there for a bit and look around.

I'll be the first to tell you that mine don't look like hers, one of the main reasons is that I didn't have an 8x8 pan at my disposal, it was being used for something else, so I went with a slightly bigger which resulted in more cookie bars but not as thick as hers.

They are SO so good and now I'm determined to make more.  Next up will be the Golden Oreo cookies, then I'm going to make these bars using my leftover Girl Scout Cookies.  I can just imagine some Peppermint Cookie Bars or Samoas....YUM!

  3. This look really good. I'm definitely going to try them, but have a question. How do I get the marshmallows and melted butter to puff up if I don't have a microwave? Melt them in the oven? Or toaster oven? Or in a pot over the stove? Thanks.

  4. @Great-Granny Grandma, I know that you can melt the marshmallows and butter over the stove. That's how I learned to originally make rice crispy treats.

  5. Do these need to be eaten straight from the fridge or is it okay if they're out for about an hour or two before eating? (eg. in the instance of traveling for a party)
