It's hot in New York City. I had a bunch of things I wanted to make, but these no-bake Oreo bars were the first thing I ticked off my agenda. Partly because the words no and bake are in the title, but also because they require three ingredients. Yes, three. ingredients.
I do have to apologize, though - this is my second Oreo-related post in a row. Crazy, no? And - are you sitting down? - there will be another one soon. But I digress. Think of these bars as the Oreo equivalent of rice krispie treats. They almost don't even need a "recipe" - but I've included it below.
No Bake Oreo Bars
1 16 oz package of Oreos (mine says 15.5 oz - I guess they rounded up)
5 cups of large marshmallows
4 Tbsp butter (I used unsalted)
Butter an 8x8 inch pan (I used a smaller pan, since I have an 9x9 but not an 8x8 and I didn't want them to come out too thin...oh, and I used Pam).
Line with parchment paper and let the edges hang over (I used wax paper).
Butter the lined pan (I used Pam again).
Grind the Oreos in a food processor.
Put the butter and marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl and microwave until puffed, about 1.5-2 minutes (mine took 2 1/2 minutes).
Stir in the ground Oreos until combined (I recommend spraying your spatula with Pam before doing so).
Transfer to the prepared pain
Using a piece of wax paper (Spray it with Pam before doing so - otherwise it'll all get stuck onthe wax paper....trust me, I learned the hard way!), press the mixture evenly in the pan.
Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Cut into bars and serve. Oh, and they're super rich. The ones I cut above are about 1" x 1". Mine are a bit thicker than yours will be if you use the recommended 8x8" pan.
