Oreo O's Cereal Treats
- One 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows
- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 cups Oreo O's cereal
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- 2 teaspoons shortening
Lightly grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the 10-ounce bag of mini marshmallows, stirring until they have completely melted and combined with the butter. Stir in the salt and vanilla. In a large mixing bowl, add the cereal, marshmallow mixture and 2 cups mini marshmallows, tossing until the cereal and marshmallows are completely coated. Using a greased spatula, evenly and firmly press the cereal mixture into the prepared baking dish. Allow to cool completely.
Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips with the shortening in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between each, until it forms a liquid that’s easy to stir. Drizzle over the cooled Oreo O’s Cereal Treats. Let the bars sit to allow the chocolate to harden before cutting into 16 squares.
