Chewy Oreo Bars
This was like eating a super yummy, chewy cookies and cream treat. I love anything and everything cookies and cream, so naturally I loved these too. :)
2 (16.6 oz) packages of Oreos
2 (10 oz.) bags of large marshmallows
1 stick butter, cut into cubes
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
*Note~ If you want to make a smaller batch, use a 8x8 pan and only half of the ingredients.
Grease or butter a 9x13 pan. Place Oreos in food processor and pulse into ground (you may have to work in batches). I personally just poured all the oreos into a ziplock baggie, doubled it up, and then crushed them with the heel of a spatula. I didn't mind having some chunkier pieces. Pour Oreos into a large bowl. In another large microwave-safe bowl, melt marshmallows and butter for 60 seconds. Stir. Repeat until mixture is melted and mixed together. Pour over Oreos. Stir, using a wooden spoon, until mixed well. Mixture will become thick and hard to stir. Keep mixing until all the crumbs are incorporated. Pour into prepared pan and press to spread evenly. Set aside. Place white chocolate chips in a zip-loc baggie. Place in microwave for 20 seconds. Take out and knead to mix. Repeat until chocolate is melted. Cut off a small piece of the corner of the bag and drizzle bars with chocolate. I usually place them in the fridge to hurry the process (but if you leave them too long, you will have to let them sit out to soften before cutting). Once chocolate has set, cut into bars and enjoy.
Gluten free: substitute GF chocolate/oreo like cookies. I like Glutino brand the best. Also, make sure you have enough cookies...the gluten free cookies you buy come with less cookies in them than an actual Oreo package does. So you may have to use more cookies or use less marshmellows, whichever you prefer. :)
