[cookies'n cream bars]

Ever since I saw Lindsay Lohan’s character dunk an oreo in a jar of peanut butter in The Parent Trap, I was hooked on the snack. I found this recipe for a no bake bar [my first] and had all the ingredients on hand. Remembering how good peanut butter + oreos are together, I strayed from the recipe and added a touch of peanut butter to the mix. I also didn’t have a full package of oreos so I improvised and added some reduced-fat chips ahoys.

Cookies’n Cream Bars

  • 1 package oreos [I used Trader Joe's Joe-Joes  {like oreos but better} and again, only had half a package so I used some reduced-fat chips ahoys. use any cookies you have.]
  • 2 spoonfuls natural peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 package mini marshmallows

Place cookies in a ziploc bag and crush [doesn't need to be a fine crush]. Place marshmallows, butter, and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl and microwave for 1.5 – 2 minutes or until marshmallows begin to puff. Remove and pour in cookie mixture. Stir to combine then transfer to a foil lined 8×8 baking pan. Let sit for 10 minutes. Remove bars out of pan with edges of foil and cut into squares. Makes 9 large bars. Told you it was easy!

    I can wait to try this, (except for adding reduced Chips Ahoy).
    Some of us don’t have to watch our weight.

  2. Didn’t mean “reduced” Chips Ahoy… that would be tiny little cookies. That’s no good.

    I left out “reduced FAT” Chips Ahoy…

    BTW do have have “extra FAT” Chips Ahoy for those of us not worrying about our weight?

  3. This is toooooooooo good, hahahahaha.

    For “extra FAT” Chips Ahoy just sandwich some marshmallows in between two 100% fat Chips Ahoy and call it a day. If that’s too tricky, just sit on the couch and eat an entire bag in one sitting – that would probably do the trick too.
