Chewy No-bake Cookies & Cream Bars

Browsing through Pinterest, I found a lot of no-bake recipes, most of them desserts of course. I wanted to try something really easy and found this recipe for chewy no-bake cookies & cream bars.

Looks good, right?

Ingredients:
1 (16-ounce) package of Oreo cookies
5 cups (1 bag) of large marshmallows
4 tablespoons butter

Direction:
Line an 8×8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, allowing the foil to hang over the edges, and set aside.

Place Oreo cookies in food processor (or crush in a large Ziploc bag with a rolling pin) and pulse until crumbly, but not ground.

Melt marshmallows and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl until puffy, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove and pour in ground cookies. Quickly stir to combine, then transfer to baking dish.

Allow to set for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove bars from pan by foil edges. Cut, serve, and enjoy!

I used Presto creams in substitute of Oreo cookies, the difference in price is 8-10 pesos. I crushed them in a small bowl with a spoon.

I then realized I didn’t have a bowl big enough to hold the marshmallows so I had to adjust.

With butter and heated for 1 minute
Added the cookies.
I also didn’t have an 8×8-inch baking dish so I used this pyrex thing
which was too big. And I couldn’t find the foil. 
My bars turned out so thin.

They were not bad for first try. Mom liked it but it’s too sweet. I still had a bag of marshmallows and cookies so I tried making some more 2 days later.

I found a deeper bowl where I melted the marshmallows and a smaller dish to make the bars thicker. I crushed the cookies inside the bag which caused some of it to turn into powder, that’s why the whole thing turned brown. And I found the foil! But it turns out it was harder to separate.

Next time I won’t use foil anymore, and I’ll mix it in the same dish I’ll use for melting it. Less dishes to wash.

    I’ve always been fascinated with “no bakes”. There are those “no bake cheese cakes” and the like. Never thought I’d land on your site and find another no-bake delight. Thank you very much for sharing. Will it be alright if I’d blog about your recipe at http://www.nursetinashares.blogspot.com after giving it a try? I hope it’s alright. All credits given to you, of course. 😉

    Thank you very much for sharing this, girl. More recipes please??? 🙂

    Regards,

    Tina
