Pinterest Recipe: Oreo Mallow Bars

According to Pinterest, I pinned this recipe 31 weeks ago and haven't tried it yet! I don't know why... maybe it was just too simple and thus, boring? It's rice krispie treats minus the rice krispies and Oreos in its place. Super simple, fast and messy. Seriously, if you hate washing dishes you will loathe this recipe. If you're one of those people who will use a bowl and get it nice and gross and then put it in the sink, fill it with water and leave it... this recipe will be perfect for you. (Because, that's what I did. The marshmallow goo = cement. Seriously.) 

Oreo Mallow Bars

One 16 oz package of Oreo Cookies
5 cups large marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter
Butter an 8X8 inch baking pan. Line the baking pan with parchment paper letting the paper extend up two sides of the pan and overhang slightly on both ends. Butter paper; set pan aside.
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse Oreos until ground.
In a large, microwave safe bowl, melt butter and marshmallows in the microwave until puffed, about 1½ - 2 minutes. Stir in ground Oreo Cookies until combined. Transfer to prepared baking pan. Using a piece of wax paper, press mixture evenly into prepared pan.
Let set up for at least 10 minutes. Cut into bars and serve.

The verdict? Well, they were pretty unexciting, to me. They weren't bad but I don't see myself craving to make these anytime soon either. But then again, doesn't every have just lukewarm okay feelings about rice krispies anyway? Was I expecting too much from a three ingredient recipe? Maybe.
