Wookiee Cookies


I know “Wookiee Cookies” already existed, but I was unsatisfied. I wanted something snarlier. Something sweeter. Something furrier.

I used the same butterscotch from our Harry Potter episode, mixed with peanut butter to make these super easy, no-bake hairballs of cookies.

Wookiee Cookies

  • 3+ tablespoons butterscotch (such as Popsugar’s easy homemade recipe)
  • 3+ tablespoons peanut butter
  • 3 large shredded wheat biscuits

In a large bowl, carefully break apart the shredded what biscuits so that they are completely broken up but there are still lots of long strands.

In a small bowl, mix together butterscotch and peanut butter. This amount should be enough to just barely hold the cookies together and keep them extra furry, you can increase the amount if you want them a little more stuck together and less delicate. Gently heat it 10 seconds at a time in the microwave until it is liquidy but not too hot to touch.

Mix the butterscotch-peanut-butter mixture with the shredded wheat. Form into clumps, and space on a wax-paper lined baking sheet to cool/harden to room temperature.
