INGREDIENTS:

4 ,5 cups Oreo cookie crumbs,
1.1/2 cups butter, softened,
1 pk cream cheese softened,
1 cup powder sugar,
2 cups miniature marshmallows,
1 teaspoon vanilla extract,

DIRECTIONS:

Mix cookie crumbs with butter to a nice and smooth texture. Spread on parchment paper almost 1 inch thick, a rectangular shape. In a clean mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth; add vanilla and sugar; fold in marshmallows. Spread the mixture over the cookie sheet; roll; refrigerate until firm , about 2 hours. Dust with powder sugar or be creative... slice and serve!

Enjoy!
