Ingredients:

  • 1 (16-ounce) package of Oreo cookies

Line an 8×8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, allowing the foil to hang over the edges, and set aside.
Place Oreo cookies in food processor (or crush in a large Ziploc bag with a rolling pin) and pulse until crumbly, but not ground.
Melt marshmallows and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl until puffy, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove and pour in ground cookies. Quickly stir to combine, then transfer to baking dish.
