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.
