I finally made Lumps of Coal

Been itching to try these since I first saw them on Pinterest…and I finally found a bag of non-fruit-flavored marshmallows to make it with!

They taste like biting into a highly compressed and chewy mass of solid Oreo.  So if that doesn’t sound appealing, maybe don’t try this.

One more ticked off from the Pinterest to-do list

Ingredients

Oreos (33 cookies)
1/4 c butter
5 handfuls jumbo marshmallows

  1. Line a pan with parchment and butter it heavily.
  2. Pulverize Oreos into crumbs.
  3. Heat butter on low until it melts.  Add marshmallows and keep stirring.
  4. When the marshmallows are melted, stir in the Oreo crumbs.
  5. It’ll set quick, so work fast: take it off the heat and press the goo into the greased pan.  Let it set in the fridge.  (They taste better cold, so it’s best to leave them for a while.)

Weirdsperiments: Chocolate Marshmallow Cookie Crumb Omelette

What are weirdsperiments?

Stuff like this.

cookie crumb omelette pancake thing

I’m starting a new blog feature where I will post the junky, disgusting garbage I’m making instead of hiding it away in shame.

Inspired by my success with cookie crumbs in last week’s post – and with my cabinet still stocked with leftover Halloween cookies – I decided to see how they would work in place of flour in a pseudo-pancake recipe.  (It’s probably more pancake than omelette.)

Review:
Surprisingly…good.  I probably would not serve this to a guest, but it’s passable for those lonely nights when sugar is my only friend.

Ingredients:"soft" cookies
1 eggoval cookies
1 tbsp milk
1.5 tsp honey
dash of vanilla
~6 cookies, depending on the size
pinch salt
1 tbsp chocolate chips
mini marshmallows
spoonful of peanut butter

Enjoy some photos of what I used here!

Mix the egg, milk, honey, and vanilla together in a cup.  In a bowl, crush the cookies with your fingers until they’re crumbs.  Add the salt and the egg mixture, and combine well.

marshmallows
Strawberry flavor optional. Note: this is why mine is purple.

Add in the chocolate chips plus marshmallows to taste, and mix.  Add the peanut butter, but don’t mix it thoroughly – just enough to swirl it around.

Cook it like a pancake – in a buttered frying pan on medium.

Dust with powdered sugar to make it pretty.

Cry because you’re alone and this is what your life has come to.
