Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies Treats


I hope you guys enjoyed the first cookies and cream recipe yesterday. To continue cookies and cream week, today I am sharing cookies and cream rice krispies treats!

I must confess that once I learned how to make these rice krispies treats at home, I was nonstop making it all the time.

I took Chinese all last year in college and had Chinese class EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Luckily, my teachers made it fun and the class became friends. After every quarter, on our last day of class, we would have a potluck. I wanted to make something to bring in, but didn`t have much time.

So, I decided to change things up by adding some Oreo cookies into the rice krispies treats things time around. It`s easy to make and super yummy!

Since the class was so small, I had some leftover and brought them back to my apartment. Let`s say my roommates were happy because they loved them and it came in handy as a study snack during Finals week!
