Chocolate Oreo Pancakes with Oreo Cream Glaze

Chocolate Oreo Pancakes with Oreo Cream Glaze


These were really good and they tasted like you were eating Oreos for breakfast. Yum!  I'd tried some different chocolate pancakes and wasn't too excited about them until I found these. I found these chocolate pancakes on group recipes but I added the Oreos and glaze. These were really good and with the oreo filling glaze it raised them to great.

Strawberry Pop Tart Rice Krispy Treats



Strawberry Pop Tart Rice Krispy Treats





I like making Rice Krispy Treats a lot and adding different thing to them.  My kids like it too.

This time I saw pop tarts at the store and thought of adding them with a strawberry filling in the middle like pop tarts have and then these were born.

Melt in a large pan over medium hi heat until mallows are melted and incorporated with butter

I pureed 15 Strawberries with 1/4c. sugar and 3T. ultra gel. I let it thicken a little  by sitting there and then spread it onto the treats. Then put remaining hlaf or rice krispy mixture over and top and smooth out with your hands as best as you can pressing to seal them together.

Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
Whisk in the dry ingredients until combined and fold in Oreos. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with a few crumbs clinging to it then top with halved marshamallows and bake 3 to 5 minutes more or until puffed. Allow brownies to cool completely before frosting.
