Ingredients

  • 1 and ½ cups Cookie Crumbs
  • 1 and ½ cups Powdered Sugar 180g
  • 1 cup Creamy Salted Peanut Butter (250g)
  • ½ cup Vegan Butter (112g) Melted
  • 2 cups Vegan Chocolate Chips (350g)

Instructions

  • Add your cookie of choice (see notes) to a blender or food processor and process into crumbs. Measure out 1 and ½ cups and add to a mixing bowl. Add in the powdered sugar and mix together.
  • Melt the vegan butter and add it in to the mixing bowl along with the peanut butter and mix in with a spoon until properly mixed. It will be very thick. Line a 9x9 square dish with parchment paper so that there is overhang on the sides (making it easy to lift out). Transfer the cookie mix to the square dish and smooth it down into an even layer. Place into the freezer while you work on your chocolate topping.
  • Add the chocolate chips to a microwave safe dish and then melt by microwaving for 30 second intervals, bringing it out to stir every 30 seconds until melted. Pour over the top of the peanut butter layer and smooth down evenly. Place into the fridge to set. It will take around 2 hours to set properly.
  • When set, cut into squares. To prevent cracks in the chocolate when you are cutting into squares, dip your knife into hot water, dry it off and then cut. Then dip it again, dry it off again and cut again.
  • Keep leftovers refrigerated and enjoy within a week. They are also very freezer friendly.

Notes

  1. You can use any cookie here, like Digestives or Golden Oreos or Vegan Graham Crackers.
  2. Commercial brands of peanut butter work best in this dessert rather than natural style peanut butters.
  3. This recipe was originally published in 2017, now updated with clearer text and instructions.
