Chocolate Cookie Butter Cups

It’s no surprise I love Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter. {proof}

It’s amazing.

It’s magical.

It’s cookies…in spreadable I-can-eat-this-for-breakfast-because-it’s-like-peanut-butter form.

So I do that. I spread it on english muffins, then top it with sliced bananas, and a drizzle of honey.

I basically substitute any sort of peanut butter with cookie butter. My kids ask for it, and I say no.

“It’s for grown-ups.” I tell them.

It’s not. It’s for everyone.

But I need to conserve.

It’s human nature.

But I do share every once in awhile.

Like when I made these Chocolate Cookie Butter Cups. I couldn’t possibly eat all 30 of them by myself.

Maybe only 25.

A girl has to watch her figure ya know.

These are exactly like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, only instead of that out-dated peanut butter filling, it’s packed with a creamy and luscious cookie butter center.

Simply put- these are phenomenal!

Can’t find a Trader Joe’s near you??

Try buying on Amazon {Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter} <– worth it!

Chocolate Cookie Butter Cups

Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup cookie butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup fine graham cracker crumbs

Instructions

  1. Combine chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe dish and heat in microwave in increments of 30 seconds at 50% power, stirring in between till chocolate is smooth.

  1. Yes, please!! I have some cookie butter in the fridge and now I know what I’m going to do with it! :)

  2. I’ve never heard of cookie butter. Where can I find it? It looks yummy :-)

    • Hi Elizabeth, yes it’s incredible. This Cookie Butter is sold at Trader Joe’s. {I’ll put a link in the post where you can order some off Amazon}. But Cookie Butter is made from Biscoff cookies, so you could also purchase Biscoff spread (but I am not sure which grocery store sells this)

  3. OMG, Shawn! These are incredible. I loooove cookie butter–like you said, it’s awesome on everything! I definitely need some of these cups–yeah, 25 works–in my life.

  4. Way easier to score than Biscoff and just as good if not better? Send me 24 right now…and keep one for yourself :)

  5. These would be so dangerous to have around by myself!

  6. Wow Shawn! These are soooo cool. Cookie Butter and me, we’re reeeealllly good friends.

  7. YUM!!!!!!! I miss blasted Trader Joe’s!!

    I have found Biscoff spread at Walmart. I just love eating it by the spoonful, but will have to try these little gems! Thanks for sharing!

  9. mmmmmmm!!!! I need to try this.

  10. AMAZING!!! I have been thinking about doing with this Biscoff Spread (tastes the same as Cookie Butter), so glad it works out!
    I tell my son certain foods are only for grown ups too :)

  11. in a word — brilliant! :-)

  12. I’ve been kicking the PB off my shelves to make room for cookie butter all this month too, only I’ve been making it from scratch (because when you get to the point where you’re actually spending more on store-bought CB than you are on, say, actual food in any given month…it probably means priorities need to be shuffled around. I prioritized by getting a food processor). These cups are next on my list, thanks so much for sharing!

  13. You are officially my favorite blogger…ever. YUM!

  14. Mmmmm, love cookie butter….
