Cookie butter — also commonly known as Speculoos — is an amazingly delicious treat found in Europe, especially in areas such as the Netherlands, Germany and other neighboring countries. With an appearance and consistency very similar to that of peanut butter, Speculoos is made from crushed cookies and tastes almost like a gingerbread cookie.
I took the idea of fudge but swapped out the peanut butter and instead used cookie butter in its place. This rich and very decadent treat is perfect when you want a little something sweet to get your sugar fix. The spices and gingerlike taste add a nice contrast against the sweet flavor, creating something super satisfying.
