Sweet & Chewy Marshmallow Oreo Squares

marshmallow oreo squaresI love anything that has to do with marshmallows (except for Peeps -- they freak me out) so Rice Krispie Treats and Corn Flake wreaths are some of my favorite sweet desserts. That is, until I was introduced to marshmallow Oreo squares. Now these are my fave. Crunchy, chewy, and sweet, the squares are just as fun to eat as they are to make. Get the kids to crush up some Oreos, heat up some marshmallows and butter and before you know it, you've down 10 of these suckers with a glass of milk.

They're so easy to whip up -- get started now!
