Chewy No-Bake Oreo Marshmallow Treats

These Chewy Oreo Marshmallow Treats are really delicious and super quick to make. Just the thing you need for children of all ages on Children's Day!


The original recipe from Picky Palate.




Chewy No-Bake Oreo Marshmallow Treats
Makes about 20 squares
Ingredients:

  • 450 g Oreo Cookies (about 3 tubes)
  • 270 g marshmallows
  • 55 g unsalted butter at room temperature

Method:

  1. Line a 20 cm x 20 cm dish with foil, leaving some overhang on the sides.
  2. Crush the Oreo cookies with a food processor or a rolling pin, but keep it coarse.
  3. Place the butter in a big microwaveable bowl and melt it in the microwave.
  4. When your cookie crumbs are ready, place the marshmallows in the bowl with the melted butter and microwave at high for about 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes until puffed out.
  5. Working very quickly, stir the marshmallows once or twice to incorporate the butter and then add the cookie crumbs immediately and mix well.
  6. Tip the content of the bowl into the lined dish. Using a lightly oiled spoon (or lightly oiled hand), press the mixture evenly into the dish and allow to cool completely.
  7. Lift the treats by the foil edges. Cut into squares and keep in an airtight container. Serve with coffee!
Hint: If you use ordinary Oreo cookies with the white filling, your Treats might turn out a no-so-appetizing grey colour. I seem to get a better result with the chocolate cream filled Oreos.
