Oreo Rice Krispies Treats

Today is National Cereal Day! Who hasn't made Rice Krispies Treats? They were very special at my house when I was growing up. We didn't have them a lot, but I loved them. I like this recipe because it takes it up a notch and adds chopped Oreos (you can use other cookies, too, but this is a chocolate blog!). This is a quick and easy recipe from Kraft, the maker of Rice Krispies, and it only takes 10 minutes. O.K., this may not be the healthiest of treats, but they're certainly yummy! The following recipe is adapted from the Kraft website, but you can always substitute your own puffed rice cereal, sandwich cookies and marshmallows. Happy National Cereal Day!

As I've mentioned many time, food companies often have fun recipes on their sites! Enjoy!
