What I Did: My oven was broken for a couple of weeks right over the Christmas holidays. I wanted to make a dessert for one of our family holiday celebrations but since I had no oven, I needed a no bake dessert. I stumbled across this one online that looked SO easy. It wasn’t until I was actually dumping the mixture into the pan that I realized…these are Rice Krispie treats just made with oreos instead of Rice Krispies. I don’t know why that didn’t occur to me when I read the recipe. This is also the instant I realized the tinfoil was going to be a nightmare. Why on EARTH lining the pan with tinfoil was part of the process is beyond me. The end result was a sticky, gooey mess that melded instantly to the tinfoil and was impossible to get off. Everytime I cut a square, the tinfoil came with it and I spent 5 minutes peeling off the tinfoil from the bottom piece by piece. I got nothing that looked like those perfectly shaped rectangular treats that are stacked up so nicely in the picture from pinterest.
Next Time I Will: I definitely would NOT use tinfoil. I’d just spray the pan with baking spray before dumping the mix in…you know, like how you do with RICE KRISPIE TREATS!!! I also might consider not eating a handful of the oreos before starting. LOL! Maybe that upset the marshamallow/oreo balance which is what made them so gooey and sticky. This project cannot be saved. But I’m holding onto it for when I get my late evening snack cravings and I have no other food in the house to eat. Honestly? I’d rather just eat the oreos next time.
