Peanut Butter Oreo Moon Rocks

I was recently asked to come up with a recipe for limited edition Peanut Butter Oreos to make them 'Wonderfilled'.  Unfortunately the Oreos arrived crushed and crumbed, no replacements were forthcoming, and the deadline was looming.  Undeterred, I decided to use the Oreo crumbs to develop Peanut Butter Oreo Moon Rocks.  

These cookies are really easy to make and perfect for kids to help out with.  Great for kids parties, lunch boxes or school holiday baking fun.



Peanut Butter Oreo Moon Rocks

340g jar or 1 cup smooth peanut butter
175g or 3/4 cup caster sugar
1 large free range egg, beaten
100g or 3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 pack Peanut Butter Oreos, made into fine crumbs

Blitz the Oreos into crumbs in a food processor or bash them with a rolling pin in a plastic bag until fine crumbs.  Beat the peanut butter and sugar together in a bowl.  Mix in the beaten egg thoroughly, then mix in the chocolate chips. The mixture will be quite stiff. I usually use my hand held electric mixer.

Roll tablespoonfuls into balls and flatten slightly then roll inthe Oreo crumbs.  Put on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. 

Bake at 180C/160C Fan for 15-18 minutes until the biscuits are cooked and lightly browned. Transfer to a cake rack to cool and then keep in an airtight container.

  2. I was amazed most of mine were still intact, even after dropping the envelope on the floor jiffy bag was a bit of an odd postage tool for biscuits! Well done on creating something delicious with the crumbs!

  5. Oh these look delicious! And I love the name you've given them! I also found it rather strange that the Oreos were shipped in a Jiffy bag. I must have a wonderful post man because all of mine were intact. I know my son would just love these!
