Baseball Krispies~ with Oreos! I love Rice Krispie treats and have tried lots of things added to them, but I had never tried Oreos, actually it never even crossed my mind until I saw this post on the cute blog Picky Palate. I thought I would take it one step further and make them into cute baseballs…here’s what I did… This is a doubled the batch of the usual Krispie treats because I wanted them thicker (I usually do this anyway, but thought I would make mention of it here because the “baseballs” are cuter thicker, I think)2 bags marshmallows – I used 2 10 oz. bags of jumbo
8 cups Rice Krispie cereal
4 cups coursely chopped Oreos -approx 15 cookies
1 stick butter (1/2 cup) Now just make the krispies like you usually would melt the butter on low, add the marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat and add the krispies and Oreos. Stir until combined. Pour into a greased 9×13. Using waxed paper press down firmly until the krispies are even and smooth. Let cool…about 20 min or so.
Now cut into circles, or if you have a round cookie cutter that you like the size of, use that. I cut mine approx. 2 inches in diameter.
Now eat your leftover scraps…you know, just to make sure it tastes ok 😉
After you have them all cut out melt some white candy disks and dunk the tops in the candy…smoothing it across the top so you get a smooth finish.
Then pipe some red royal icing as the baseball stitching. I make my own Royal icing, but you could use whatever type. Just please, don’t use that nasty gel stuff…it tastes gross and never really sets.
So, they tasted delicious and the kids loved them. I wrapped them each in celophane to hand out, but you could put them in clear bags as favors!
