Everyone loves krispy treats! They are perfect here in Arizona where we never want to turn on our ovens because we live in one!!! LOL well it feels that way sometimes. I love making krispy treats and my husband loves those Oreos. So why not combine them?! Kids young and old will come running for these Cookies and Cream Krispy Treats!
I used to make the worst krispy rice treats not even joking here! Even the hubby didn’t like them. They were too hard or too sticky or just plain yucky. I had to do some research and testing to make good krispy rice treats.
One tip I learned that has made a HUGE difference in making krispy rice treats is to keep the marshmallow to cereal ration equal!
Another tip is don’t pack the treats too much in the pan this makes them just plain hard.
