  1. Make the ganache filling: Combine chocolate and olive oil in a small bowl. Microwave in 10 second bursts, stirring regularly, until chocolate is smooth. Stir through the peanut butter. Allow to cool until filling thickens – refrigerate in 10 minute blocks if necessary, stirring well to check consistency each time before cooling further.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two oven trays with baking paper.
  3. In a large saucepan over low heat, combine peanut butter, margarine, sugar, golden syrup, water, and salt. Stir until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.
  4. Add flour, oats, and Weet-Bix to the saucepan and stir well. Leave dough to cool 5 mins.
  5. Scoop dough into prepared trays to make 40 biscuits – approx. 1/2 tablespoon each.  Leave a bit of space between biscuits for spreading, and gently flatten the tops with a wet finger.
  6. Bake 8 minutes or until golden. Cool completely on pan.
  7. Turn half the biscuits over so the bottom is facing up. Spread approximately 1 teaspoon of ganache onto each up-turned biscuit, then sandwich with remaining biscuits. Let set at room temperature, or store in fridge.
