I completely forgot to blog about this fabulous recipe that I brought for the 4th of July! Maybe it was subconscious and I just didn't want anyone else to know how to make this wonderful, sinfully delicious concoction? I don't know, but it is so good you will understand as soon as you taste them! :) My picture does not do these treats justice at all... Wow, I'm kind of licking my lips right now remembering how yummy they were! :)
Oreo Turtle Bars
(recipe found at www.jamiecooksitup.com)
45 oreos (3 sleeves or one regular package)
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 cups mini marshmallows
3/4 cups pecan pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (14 ounces) can sweetened condensed milk
Begin by making your crust. Pour oreos into a food processor and grind them up into crumbs. Melt butter in a small mixing bowl. Add the oreo crumbs to the butter and stir them all together until well combined. Spray a 9x13" pan with cooking spray and press cookie crumbs into the bottom.
Heat up a large skillet over medium high heat. Pour in 1 tablespoon olive oil. When oil is hot add pecans and sprinkle them with salt. Let them toast for about 5 minutes, stirring ever so often, until a little darker in color.
Sprinkle the milk chocolate chips evenly over the crust. Then follow with white and semi sweet chocolate chips. Spread on marshmallows and add pecans. Carefully drizzle the sweetened condensed milk over the top of all your layers. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until you can see that it is bubbling slightly. Cool to room temperature before serving.
