Rice Krispie treats take me right back to being a kid and they are so simple to make! These ones are loaded with Oreo cookies and topped with a layer of chocolate for a delicious cookies and cream snack to enjoy throughout the week. I had some Rice Krispies leftover from these Peanut Butter Crunch Bites, and I’m so glad I did!

Dead easy to make, the hardest part is waiting for them to set before tucking in!

Ingredients

  • Butter: I used salted butter to really help enhance the chocolate flavors, but you can use unsalted.
  • Mini marshmallows: Melted down to act as the glue to hold everything together.
  • Rice Krispies: Or any other puffed corn cereal.
  • Oreos: I used 12 Oreos, but you measure that with your heart and throw in a few more in if you like.
  • Chocolate chips: Melted down for that delicious chocolate topping.
  • Coconut oil: Added to the chocolate chips to make it harden quicker. You can also use vegetable oil or butter.

Variations

These Oreo Rice Krispie treats are pretty good as they are, but there are a few swaps and additions you can make to make them your own!

  • I used original Oreos, but you can use double stuffed if you prefer.
  • Try using different flavored Oreos like mint or peanut butter.
  • I don’t have an overly sweet tooth, but if you prefer your squares on the sweeter side, and in a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  • Experiment with different add ins, M&Ms, mini marshmallows, sprinkles and freeze dried raspberries all work great!
  • Skip the chocolate layer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size pan do you need?

I used an 8×8 pan for these and the squares were pretty sizeable. If you prefer a thinner Rice Krispie treat, use a larger pan, a half sheet will work well.

How long do they keep?

Once the chocolate has set and you have cut up the treats, store them in an airtight container with the layers separated with parchment. Because of the chocolate topping, I prefer to keep them in the fridge and they will keep well for about 5 days. Take them out of the fridge 10 minutes before eating so that they soften up a little.

Why are my Rice Krispy treats hard?

Be sure to heat the marshmallows and butter on a medium heat. If you melt them too quickly, that can result in hard squares. Don’t use old marshmallows either as they can dry out.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Be sure to line your tin with parchment before adding the mixture, otherwise they will be near impossible to remove from the tin!
  • The mixture is super sticky, so use a piece of parchment or plastic wrap to press it into the tin.
  • Don’t press down on the mixture too hard when placing it in the tin or you will crush the Rice Krispies and you will be left with dense squares.
