oreo pretzel rice krispie treat

Hi People. After a year of silence, I am back! It has been so long that I forgot my password onto this site. Oh my.

Much has happened in a year.

The Daughter went grey-blonde and entered first year of college. I am nearing the half century mark with doom and gloom, with diet and health becoming an ever present topic of discussion.  I am also figuring out how to "help out" my son with his schoolwork, after 10 years of next to nil involvement. Don't ask.

I have done little baking exploration (diet!! health!!) and basically make my trifecta of standbys— chocolate chip cookies, brownies and cornflake crunch cookie— when occasions call for them. Today's treats, however, have made it into the rotation the past few months.

The BFF concocted this deliciousness and I want to share with you. It's particularly great in the summer months as it calls for just a little bit of stovetop heat and involves no oven. You will thank me for the cool kitchen, but will curse me when the one bite becomes two, or three, or four...

 I use miniature marshmallows so that they melt down more quickly.

One crucial technique pointer— try to keep oreos in larger chunks. Don't over pulverize.


1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
1 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows
pinch of salt
4 cups rice krispies
18 oreos, crushed (I place oreos in a plastic bag and lightly tap with a meat mallet)
3 handfuls of pretzel sticks

Grease a 9x13 pan.

Over medium low heat, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and melt down, stirring constantly. Add a pinch of salt. Remove from heat and add the rice krispies. Mix thoroughly. Add the oreos and pretzels. (I squeeze each handful of pretzels as I add them to break them down a bit.) Mix thoroughly and dump into the prepared pan. Pat down the mixture evenly. Let cool a few minutes before cutting.
