I made easy No Bake Cookie Butter Bars to cap off the week!
I adapted my ever popular Peanut Butter Bars with one of my greatest obsessions, cookie butter. Because anything with the word “butter” is always better.
What Is Cookie Butter?
Cookie Butter is pretty much just what it sounds like. It’s essentially a spreadable cookie. The cookie that cookie butter is derived from is a spiced European cookie called speculoos with the largest distributor of the cookie being the Lotus Biscoff Cookies.
The spread was first introduced in Europe in 2009 and made it’s way to the U.S in 2011. Ever since it’s pretty much been crack for anyone who tries it. The uses for it are similar to how Nutella is used, as they are both considered a nut butter.
What’s In No Bake Cookie Bars?
The bars are a mix of sweet and salty with a crunchy, buttery, cookie base. Not to mention, a cookie butter and chocolate topping that gives them great balance. These bars take just 10 minutes to whip up and are the perfect make-ahead dessert for any occasion! First, you’ll just need a few ingredients:
- Kettle Chips
- Cookie Butter
- Powdered Sugar
- Milk Chocolate Chips
How To Make This Cookie Butter Bar Recipe
The no-bake component of these bars makes them easy enough that even the kids can help. Just mix together to crushed chips, cookie butter, powdered sugar, and butter and spread into your pan.
Next, you’ll melt the cookie butter and chocolate chips and spread the mixture on top of the other layer. Now chill for a couple hours, cut, serve and enjoy!
