Why are Oatmeal Creme Pies are called pies? Is it anything more than its two “crusts” and filling? (I’m totally going to start calling sandwiches “bread pies.”) This conundrum of “pie or not pie” got me thinking and ultimately inspired my latest recipe: Oatmeal Creme Pie… Creme Pie. And the result, if I do say so myself, was nothing short of spectacular.

Sometimes you just need some chocolate, am I right? (Hint: I usually am, especially when it comes to things of this nature). And what better way to make a chocolaty treat than to use ingredients that are already pumped up with extra chocolate, like XTREME!!!! Cocoa Pebbles cereal and chocolate swirl marshmallows. Add some chocolate chips, because you just can't control yourself, and you've got an awesome, uber chocolaty marshmallow cereal treat.
6c Cocoa Pebbles Xtreme Cereal (regular Cocoa Pebbles will do in a pinch)
1 bag (10oz.) Jet-Puffed Chocolate & Vanilla Swirl Marshmallows
1/2c white chocolate chips
1/2 c milk chocolate chips
Grease 9x13 glass pan.
Mix together 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and 1/2 milk chocolate chips.
Melt butter in large pot over stove on medium heat. Stir in marshmallow until melted
Remove from heat and stir in cereal, then stir in 3/4 cup mixed chocolate chips.
Spread cereal/mallow mixture into greased glass dish, press down into an even layer, sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips and press into top of cereal.
Let cool and cut into 48 (6x8) pieces.
Shockingly, I think the white chocolate really helps to cut the intense chocolate flavor of the rest of the dish. But don't worry, it still packs a super chocolaty punch. If white chocolate isn't your thing, use all milk, or if you are feeling particularly chocolaty, semi-sweet or dark.
