Cookie Butter Chocolate Cups

I am a big fan of chocolate cups.  These cookie butter cups are my latest creation.  I also have some pumpkin chocolate cups and some copycat Reese’s cups on the blog.  I used my homemade cookie butter to fill these cookie butter chocolate cups, but you can also use the store bought cookie butter too.  I used chocolate chips for the chocolate coating, but I am guess my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe could be used as well.

Cookie Butter Cups - My Whole Food Life

This yummy chocolate dessert is vegan, gluten free and paleo.  It’s also very easy to make.  I made mine in standard sized muffin cups, but I think making mini cups would be great too.  Then you could use them as an ice cream topping. 🙂  The gingerbread-like flavors of the cookie butter go so well with the chocolate.

Homemade Cookie Butter Recipe

Homemade Cookie Butter.  Have you tried cookie butter?  It’s traditionally made from Biscoff cookies.

I have never actually had the store bought version of cookie butter.  Mostly because I am afraid I would eat the entire jar in one sitting haha!

The store bought cookie butter also does not have a clean ingredient list.  So I sought out to make some homemade cookie butter.  This stuff is awesome!!

Homemade Cookie Butter - My Whole Food Life


I had to find something to mimic the buttery texture of the Biscoff cookies, so I chose cashews.  I have used cashews as a base in many of my flourless cookie recipes and it’s worked out great.

So I knew they would be great here.  This homemade cookie butter is vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  It contains no refined sugars.

I am thinking about using it in some upcoming dessert recipes.  Maybe truffles.  I also had some with my 5 minute banana ice cream today and it was amazing!
