Watch out, sweets lovers – you’re about to fall in love with the thickest, richest Cookie Butter Hot Chocolate on the planet! It’s perfect for cookie dippin’ and just plain sippin’, too.
In the world of hot winter drinks, I will usually lean toward the coffee.
UNLESS. Unless there’s chocolat chaud to be had (that’s French hot cocoa, friends.) Because there is little to nothing better in life than a dark chocolate bar melted in a mug and called a beverage.
And when you throw some of Belgium’s finest store-bought cookies into the mix, I’m so done.
Cookie Butter Hot Chocolate
This may be the messiest, richest, most satisfying mug of cocoa ever.
I’ve had an obsession with cookie butter since my first ever fateful trip to Trader Joe’s back in my baby blogging days (aka summer of ’14.) Having always been a fan of nut butter, I spooned it into my mouth upon purchase with no hesitation. And then later, with no abandon.
It’s essentially ground up gingerbread cookies in coconut oil. What could be bad about that?
In lieu of driving an hour to get a jar (Sorry TJ’s,) I actually made my own cookie butter for this Cookie Butter Hot Chocolate recipe out of half a package of Biscoff.
And this week seemed like the perfect time to share it – since a bunch of blogger friends and myself are celebrating The Sweetest Season 2017! And you get to come along for the ride!
(Don’t worry, you’ve got actual cookies coming your way the rest of the week!)
BUT since this recipe involves cookies, I thought a soft opening with some ridiculously decadent hot cocoa recipe might be fun!
…And also hopefully might be a good way to soften you up to ask you to make a donation to our friends at Cookies for Kids’ Cancer this holiday season. We’re raising money throughout the entire month of December, so hopefully, by the time we’ve drowned you in cookie goodness, you’ll be ready to help out our little buddies!
(I’ll be sharing more info about CFKC later this week!)
