Cookie Butter Bruschetta Recipe

I recently found my latest snack craze, compliments to Trader Joes. I am a regular at their grocery store and I am constantly picking up new things to try whether it is an interesting seasonal vegetable, a new cracker flavor that looks appealing, or one of their WAY too many candy and cookie selections. I had heard through the foodie grapevine that Speculoos Cookie Butter from Trader Joes was a must try item. After trying not to give in to the temptation for months  I finally caved. It wasn’t the original Speculoos Cookie Butter flavor that trapped me…it was the Speculoos Cookie and Cocoa Swirl.

The cookie part has a flavor similar to gingerbread and the cocoa spread is like Nutella (although I think the hazelnut is less apparent in this spread). I mean… what is not to love about this?! I soon was spreading it on fruit, pretzels, graham crackers etc. And that’s when a fun recipe idea sparked that would work as a snack, dessert, or even breakfast (I can’t lie…I happily ate mine for breakfast).

Here’s some serving ideas for Cookie Butter Bruschetta:

  • Bring to your next Brunch with friends
  • Make for dessert after a nice Italian meal
  • Plate up as snacks when impromptu guests arrive at your house
