Oreo Rocky Road Squares

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

A while back I made some marshmallow rocky road chocolate as a Valentine's treat, and surprisingly, they were a hit!  So this time I'm back with everyone's favourite cookie ... Oreos!  These treats are absolutely perfect for the end of the school year, as classes wind down and kids need a sweet treat to take in for their end of school parties!  Or, these make a fun treat for a university student on a budget who's looking for something easy to make on a Friday night! :)

For this recipe you will need:
24 Oreo cookies
3/4 of a 10.5 ounce package of miniature marshmallows
2 packages (700 grams) of chocolate chips
Sprinkles (optional)

Pan (mine was roughly 10 x 8)
Wax Paper
Microwave safe container
A Sharp Knife

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours
Yields 12 servings

Let's get started!!

1. Line your pan with wax paper.  As you see, I used only one strip of paper along the bottom, with some hanging over the longest edges.  However I would recommend putting another piece along the short edge as well for easier removal.

2. Melt 1/3 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave in short 10-15 second bursts, stirring in between each interval.  Line the bottom of the pan with it, and place in fridge or freezer for 5 minutes or until solid to the touch.

(Sorry for the blurry pics ... technical difficulties!)
3. While that is setting in the freezer, melt 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and set aside.

4. Once the chocolate is solid, line the bottom of the pan with Oreos.  I threw some sprinkles in for good measure, but I don't quite recommend that.

5. Cover the Oreo layer with your 1/2 cup of melted chocolate, and put into the refrigerator or freezer to harden to the touch.  Pay special attention to fill up the gaps in between the cookies and around the edges.  It's probably going to get messy at that point (as you can see here), but don't worry!

6. While that is hardening in the fridge or freezer, mix your rocky road mixture!  Mix 3/4 of the bag of mini marshmallows, with at least a cup of chocolate chips.  Once the chocolate covering the Oreos has solidified spread the rocky road mixture evenly over the top, and set in the refrigerator or freezer to solidify.

7. Melt any remaining chocolate, and smooth over the top.  You can choose to cover the top with sprinkles ...

... Or you can cover the top with Oreos as I did here.  If you choose to use the Oreos as I did here, you will want to reserve some of the melted chocolate to use as a reinforcement to prevent the cookies from tipping over.  Be careful not to get the chocolate all over the cookie, like I did here (oops).

8.  After decorating, set in the freezer for half an hour.  Remove using the wax paper on either side as handles.  Cut into 12 squares using your Oreos as a guide. Make sure to dip your knife in warm water between cuts.

And that's it!  These do not have to be stored in a refrigerator (they're probably easier to eat if they're served at room temperature).  They should be stored in a cool place however, so the chocolate doesn't melt.

Hope you enjoyed this edible DIY!  If you try it out, be sure to let me know how it turned out in the comment section below!

Cheers to yummy treats!
