I have been craving Oreos recently! So when I found this recipe I was ecstatic! I love Rice Krispie treats and I love Oreos so I not put them together? Last night I had my girls Bible study so I decided to make this treat for them. Mostly to save myself from eating a whole pan of Rice Krispie treats. And they were a hit! The best thing is you only need a few things & they are quick and easy to make! With Valentine’s Day around the corner feel free to drop a few drops of color into the white chocolate that you drizzle on top. Make a perfect treat for you and your Valentine. Enjoy!

I love sugar cookies. They are my biggest weakness.With Sweet Baby keeping me busy, I don’t always have time to roll out and cut the dough. This recipe was super yummy. I’m usually not a big fan of making my own frosting (eek I buy store bought-shh!) but I really liked this frosting. Enjoy!
