Salted Chocolate Cookie Butter Cups

This is a special treat that my older son made when we spent a week at my mom’s for Thanksgiving.  Although his major has changed from Culinary Arts to Journalism, he still has a knack for baking and it’s always something I look forward to whenever I see him or he comes over our place.  The recipe can yield 24 cookie butter cups…but these bite-size goodness sure didn’t last long, not whilst his little brother was around.  Moreover, they are delicious with a cup of coffee or tea!  Good Eats…-gcc

  • Approximately 1/2 cup of Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter
