Rice Krispie Treat Frosting

Oreo sent me their new Oreo Flavors a week or two before they hit the shelves. One of these new flavors is their Marshmallow Crispy Oreos. Oh my gosh. DELISH! Seriously, if you haven’t tried this new flavor yet, I highly recommend doing so.

After sampling it, I knew I wanted to create my own Rice Krispie Treat Frosting…. The end result was amazing! After making it, I googled it to see if it had been done before and noticed my friend Julianne from Beyond Frosting made her own version as well! I love to give blogger love wherever I can and even though I didn’t get the recipe from her, I want to give her a shout out as well :) Ours our also different. I incorporate some marshmallow creme in mine to add to that yummy marshmallow flavor as well as a few other slight changes.

I hope you love this as much as I did!

    I've tried the cookie dough Oreos and they weren't as good as I had anticipated. I should've bought the marshmallow krispie ones too. I'll have to go back to the store! Loving this frosting.

    umm these look delicious! Cupckaes are some of my favorite things, and so are rice krispy treats, so why not put the two of them together?! You're so smart :) Thanks for the great recipe.

    WOW....this is genius!! Rice Krispy treats are my all time favorite go to snacks. I make them often. This is so scrumptious looking I just want to put my face right smack dab in the middle of that cupcake...a must try for me real soon!

    I know what it is like to create a recipe on your own and find others have done the same kind of genius thinking. I made cherry crescent pies in cupcake tins on my own and found later someone on a blog doing the exact same thing. Great minds think alike....nothing bad about more than one brain doing all this creativity, right?! The more the better...

    I was wondering if you could use the Rice Krispie Treat cereal instead of actual Rice Krispie Treats
