No-bake dessert: Oreo Nilla Cookie Bars

Just a quick post for today...

I am sharing a recipe that you will absolutely love because it is extremely easy, requires no baking, and everyone loves it.

Oreo Nilla Cookie Bars!
Think Rice Krispie treats but with cookies instead of cereal. Cookies are way better than cereal, am I right?! I found the inital recipe on Pinterest here: Cookies and Cream No-Bake Bars but I actually made a mistake the first time around and had to improvise. My creation has two kinds of cookies instead of one. The more cookies the better, I say.


1 bag of large marshmallows
(16 oz size if you want them more marshmallow-y chewy)

4 tbsp stick butter cut into 4-5 chunks

1 bag of regular Oreo cookies

1 box of Nilla Wafers


Place entire bag of Oreo cookies and about 1/3 box of Nilla Wafers into a gallon-sized zip plastic bag. Crush up the cookies leaving some chunks.

Place entire bag of marshmallows in a very large microwave-safe bowl with 4 tbsp of stick butter. Microwave in 30-second increments while stirring in between until marshmallows are entirely melted and butter is incorporated throughout.

Immediately stir in the crushed cookies. Use some muscle as the mixture gets sticky and thick quickly.

Line a rectangular pan (9x13 or similar) with plastic wrap - this is a huge help later.

Dump entire marshmallow cookie mixture into the pan and spread the best you can. If it's totally messy and not spreading well, leave it alone and place the pan in the fridge. After about 5-6 minutes in the fridge, you will be able to press it into the sides and smooth it on top.

Refrigerate for at least one hour. When ready to serve, carefully turn the pan upside down and pull out the bars with the plastic wrap. remove the plastic wrap and use a large knife to cut the edges smooth, then cut into bars.
