Every year my Tri Delta chapter holds a philanthropy softball tournament for the Greek community to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. If you haven't heard the exciting news, Tri Delta has raised $15 million in 3.5 years for the kids at St. Jude. Tri Delta also funded a special teen room at St. Jude for patients, and I couldn't think of a better organization for my sorority to support.
This year, I signed up to bring a dessert to the softball tournament because all of the softball participants deserve a sweet treat after playing their game! These Oreo Rice Krispie Treats were such a hit! And they were super simple to make - even in a dorm room kitchen :) Accompanied with these photos that were taken on my iPhone before I ran out the door for an 8:30 class this morning, this is college dorm room blogging at its finest!
OREO RICE KRISPIE TREATS
6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
10 ounce bag mini marshmallows
3 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 cups melted white chocolate chips
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low-medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add all of the marshmallows and continuously stir with a rubber spatula until smooth.
Crush 10 of the Oreos and combine with the Rice Krispies in a large bowl.
Pour the melted marshmallows into the Rice Krispies and stir until combined. Pour the Rice Krispies into a 9x13 pan that has been greased or sprayed with cooking spray. Press the Rice Krispies into the pan.
Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Pour over the Rice Krispies.
Crush the remaining 6 Oreos and sprinkle on top of the warm melted chocolate.
Gently press the Oreo crumbs into the chocolate.
Allow the Rice Krispies to cool before cutting into squares and serving.
