Black and White Squares Part I: Oreo Rice Krispies

Sorry I've been so long in posting. Ever since my last post (Feb 9) I have been in Malta trying to renew my visa for working in Libya. Every six months you have to leave the country to renew your visa. Usually this is a three or four day ordeal, but I have been here for two weeks now, and it doesn't look like we're going to get it any time soon. 

So...I haven't been able to bake, and it's been killing me. But instead of sulking, I decided to share with you something I baked earlier. It's easy and good, so here goes.

This is a super easy treat because it takes an already really easy treat and bumps it up a notch by adding Oreos...or actually since I can't find Oreos here, by adding Stereos. Yes, these fake Oreos are called Stereos. 

And when you cut anything up into little pieces, you can't go wrong. :)

The basic premise is to add some crushed "Oreos" to a mix of rice krispies treat mix. That's it. It's so simple, but I didn't think of it until I saw it on someone else's site (which I can't remember where I found it for the life of me). Sometimes the simplest things just elude you.

So when you need a quick fix, whip these up, and everyone you share them with will be like, "Why didn't I think of that?" You don't have to tell them I told you. :)
