Oreo Christmas Coal

Salut my lovelies! Have you been naughty or nice this year? If you have been naughty, this is the treat for you!

Have you ever made rice krispies? If you have, you should be pretty familiar with the process. These edible coals are exactly the same. To make them, simply replace the puffed rice with crushed oreos! In a pinch, these treats are perfect. They are great for last minute Christmas get togethers, or a simple holiday movie night with friends and family. I am sure leaving these as an alternative to cookies on the table will be sure to bring a large smile to anyone. Beware... These bars are so chewy and delicious. One is simply not enough. I guarantee you will become addicted.

You can use any sandwich cookie. I have never tried it so I cannot say much on the matter, but if you do try a different type of cookie, please do comment! I prefer these better straight out of the refrigerator when they are still super firm instead of room temperature. In terms of serving size, I initially made 12 but decided to cut them in half. I just think it makes for a more enjoyable experience.

Total Time: about 30 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes
Inactive: 15- 20 minutes
Appliance: None

Yield: 12-14 bars or 24 bites


14.5 Grams of Oreos ( About 35 cookies)
5 cups of Marshmallows
4 Tablespoons Salted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla (optional)


Prep a 8x8 pan with wax paper and spray a layer of non-stick spray on it.

Pulse the cookies in a food processor or blender for a few seconds. The cookies should be course crumbs.

In a large bowl, place the butter inside an melt completely. Once melted, add the marshmallows and microwave for 1- 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Be sure watch carefully to ensure that the top of the marshmallows do not crisp. Pour in the vanilla at this time also.

When the marshmallows have melted and meshed with the butter, dump the crumbs into the bowl and mix quickly. After mixing thoroughly, spread onto the pan and press into the corners with a greased spatula.

Chill in the refrigerator for 15- 20 minutes and cut into bars.



The bars will last for about a week if kept in an airtight container and refrigerated.
If you want it to have a truly authentic appearance, brush some confectioner's sugar over the top to reduce the shine. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to read! I seriously hope you all try these. They are so easy, quick and, not to mention, delicious! Please, if you do try these, please take a picture and tag me in the photo on Instagram! I love interacting with you guys. 
The month of December will be a crazy whirlwind. I will be sure to have a Music Mingle up next week along with the collab! Hope you all are having a fun time with all the holidays going on!
Xx Love Always xX
