Make Your Own Cookie Butter Fruit Dip

cookiebutter2

By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Trader Joe’s delicious Speculoos Cookie Butter. But if not, it is a delicious cookie blended into a smooth consistency, making it easier for spreading or dipping. It is great on toast, pancakes, waffles, adding to ice cream, dipping fruit, pretzels or your finger in. Yes, it is delicious and super easy to make, but also pretty reasonable to purchase if you have a Trader Joe’s near by. In fact, you can almost use any crunchy dry cookie to make this (graham crackers, vanilla wafers- some may require adding a little bit of cinnamon/brown sugar spices for extra flavor). I found some yummy Biscoff cookies on super clearance (.50 for 8 packages of 4 cookies), because they were shaped like Santa and it was after Christmas. SCORE! So that is what I used. My kids couldn’t get enough. I served it warm for dipping with apples and it was perfect. Once refrigerated (if you have leftovers or are making it ahead of time), it may become a little solid, just pop it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds.
