Oreo & cocoa pop slice

I've been meaning to post this recipe for a while now but life has been hectic lately. So anyway, this slice is something I threw together when I needed to use up the rest of a packet of cocoa pops.

I found it difficult to stop at one piece. I wanted to eat the whole tray of it, and I may well have eaten way too much of it, but it was just too good not to eat. It's so simple, yet so pleasing. I will definitely be making this again. Though perhaps next time I'll make sure I'm making it for a specific event so that I don't end up eating it all.


150g broken up and lightly crushed Oreos
1 cup cocoa pops
1/3 cup choc covered peanuts or plain unsalted peanuts
100g marshmallows, chopped
2 tbs crunchy peanut butter
500g milk chocolate, melted

  1. Grease a slice tin and line with baking paper.
  2. Chop the marshmallows.
  3. Break up the oreos into small pieces and lightly crush (I did a once-over with a rolling pin).
  4. Melt the chocolate and peanut butter together and stir until smooth.
  5. Mix the rest of the ingredients into the melted chocolate mixture until combined.
  6. Spread mixture evenly into the prepared slice tin and set in the fridge until firm.
  7. Once firm, cut slice into squares.
  8. Store in the fridge (can also be stored at room temperature if it's not the middle of summer).

Oh YUM Hayley! This looks amazing! Definitely going to have to try it. Sort of rocky road-y.

Oh my goodness, Hayley. I would have eaten the whole tray of it, too... if the children weren't around.

oreos AND coco pops? Does it get any more decadent? Lucky for me we don't eat nuts so I am not the least bit tempted... LOL

Wow, crazy decadent, sounds like it's worth buying cocoa pops specially for ;)

Frances and Sumara - I am afraid that if I made these again, I truly would eat the whole batch. It is sort of rocky road-y (speaking of which, might be good to add coconut next time.....)

Kate - you could definitely leave the choc covered peanuts out, and probably even the peanut butter (but the finished product would be harder on your teeth), so you could still be tempted......

Laura - Definitely worth it. :) YUM!!
