Now, I’ve made mint truffle brownies and I’ve made traditional oreo truffle brownies but these.. these have been on my list to make for far too long. Cookie butter is one of those things that you either love or you hate. I, for one, happen to be a lover along with my boyfriend mike. Sometimes you can find us hiding in the corner, spoon in hand going to town on a jar of this glorious stuff.
Maybe you don’t know what cookie butter is? Or maybe you know it as Biscoff spread. Basically it tastes like the best graham cracker you’ve ever eaten, but in a spread form. Flipping amazing.
The brownie base is my favorite and you’ve seen it a million times on my site like these peanut butter frosted brownies, cookies and cream brownies, s’mores brownies, cheesecake and many more. They are so chewy, gooey and ultra chocolate-y due to the addition of dark cocoa powder which lends such a nice, deep chocolate flavor. It’s the only brownie recipe I use! If you are more of a cakey brownie person, these brownies probably won’t be for you so feel free to substitute your favorite brownie recipe or even a box mix if that’s your thing.
Next up is the cookie butter truffle layer which is so soft and silky smooth. I can’t get enough of cookie butter on it’s own but when it’s made into a truffle consistency I just cannot even be trusted around it! Side note: you can make cookie butter truffles out of this mixture by mixing it up and chilling it for at least fifteen minutes in the refrigerator then dip them in chocolate. You better believe that is happening in my very near future.
The top layer is just a layer of melted chocolate with some shortening to keep the chocolate a little on the soft side once it sets. Since it’s on top of softer layers, it would be hard to bite into a hard chocolate coating and it’ll probably crack all over the place too while cutting them.
These cookie butter truffle brownies are the end all of all desserts. Don’t believe me? I bet there won’t be a crumb left!
