Mock Moon Pie Cookies


You won't be able to get enough of this yummy cookie and you'll definitely be adding it to your list of easy cookie recipes. The too simple, too delicious Mock Moon Pie Cookies will become an addictive habit, I swear. Bonus, they're no-bake too.


  • 25 Reduced Fat Ritz Crackers
  • 25 teaspoons honey roasted creamy peanut butter
  • 25 teaspoons marshmallow crème
  • 4 ounces milk or dark chocolate


  1. Line 2 cookies sheets with parchment paper. Place 25 crackers on the cookie sheet then top with the 25 teaspoons of peanut butter and marshmallow creme. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over medium low heat. Once melted, turn heat to low to keep chocolate warm.
  3. Using two teaspoons, drop one peanut butter marshmallow covered cracker in the chocolate using the spoons to coat it with chocolate. Lift the cracker out of the chocolate shaking off excess chocolate. Place on the parchment paper and repeat with remaining crackers.
  4. Refrigerate until cooled and the chocolate is hard, about 20 minutes. Store in the fridge or freezer in an air tight container.

Moon Pies are a bit of controversy in our household. I personally like them, but my wife and some of the kids are indifferent at best. I think it's because while my wife loves toasted marshmallows, she really doesn't care for marshmallow crme. I think if I made up the caramel variation as Maggie G suggested below, they might find more favor with the rest of the family.

We don't have moon pie in Ireland and watching to programmes and hearing them talk about them I have always been curious to try one, this mock cookie one could be a perfect first attempt at this and I have two miniature friends that I think will wolf them down as well!

I never heard of moon pies before until this past summer when my family discovered them in the supermarket during our vacation in Nashville. I loved the flavors I tried and love this recipe because it is so quick and easy! For the non-chocolate lovers, try white chocolate on the outside. For those allergic to peanut butter, try caramel ice cream sauce inside instead!

A fast and tasty treat.

I make ritz cracker peanut butter cookies they are great spread peanut butter on one cracker top with another cracker then dip in melted chocolate!
