Now that I've given you a synopsis of my day, I just wanted to share the most delicious recipe. What you could use it for? Hmm. Not sure, really. But it popped into my head that you could use it.
You could use it to teach students how to write directions!
I don't have any cute freebie to go with it, or anything. I could probably make one if you really wanted me to!
So, it's not my own personal recipe, I got it from Picky Palate. She calls them No-Bake Chewy Cookies and Cream Bars. I needed a simpler name, so I just call them Oreo Bars.
All you need is 1 package of Oreos (or the generic brand), 1 package of marshmallows, and 4 tablespoons of butter.
Use a food processor (or blender) to grind up the Oreos while you melt (is that the right word for marshmallows?) the butter and marshmallows in the microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes.
Then, mix them all together and pour it all in a pan that's covered in aluminum foil.
You might want to spray everything with cooking spray so that the marshmallow doesn't get stuck everywhere. If you clean up fast enough, though, it shouldn't be too big of an issue.
The end. That's all. Sorry I don't have pictures.
I didn't have this idea when I made them for my friend Matt on Sunday night.
They're still sitting in my room, though. Quite the temptation. He better get back soon or they'll be in my tummy!
