I'm always looking for other ways to use cookie butter aside from eating it straight from the jar. You gotta share the love, right? Even those yummy little Speculoos cookies are worthy of being elevated right?
Plus, if you are reading this and turning on an oven sounds like a terrible idea there are plenty of no-bake options posted here. Some items here are enjoyed ice cold. Some are perfect for the over 21 crowds too.
So whether you are making something decadent for yourself or to give to someone else, this list is nothing short of mouthwatering ideas to enjoy! Heck, maybe you'll even win your office bake-off. Or give a kid some serious bragging rights. And aren't food gifts the best anyways?
Here are some ideas from around the web on how to use either the Speculoos cookies or the more famous spread cookie butter spread. You may see Biscoff mentioned too. Bottom line is, don't be afraid to experiment with those jars to turn them into something mouth-watering. You are already starting out with an amazing ingredient.
Below is my roundup of the 25 most awesome and mouthwatering ideas from around the web.
