Cookie butter is oh so addicting and yummy. This cannot be good for me. Seriously. I found a Cookie Butter Funfetti Triple Chip Bar recipe and I was instantly curious. Cookie in a jar? This was invented in Europe, right? Why couldn’t I have been born there????
I’m a little sad to acknowledge I am so late to the cookie butter party. How could I have just found out about cookie spread in a jar a few weeks ago?
So off we went to Trader Joe’s to buy some Speculoos, the Trader Joe’s name for cookie butter. Are the employees there paid more to get excited or is this truly “Addicting. It’s crack in a jar.” Yes, the guy at check out compared it to a drug addiction.
I went home and got cracking on these cookie butter bars. Yum. They are gooey, sweet, a little crunchy, a little smooth. Everything blends beautifully together. The Funfetti cake layer isn’t too thick. There’s sweet coconut flakes to add a crunch. Three types of chips add another layer of crunch. It’s all topped off with a sweet layer of cookie butter mixed with condensed milk.
Perfect dessert for a severe sweet tooth.
Cookie Butter Funfetti Triple Chip Bars
- 1 box of cake mix (Funfetti is recommended)
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut flakes
- 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup butterscotch chips
- 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
- 1-14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup cookie butter
- Preheat oven to 350F and line 9 x 13 inch pan with aluminum foil. Grease foil.
- In large bowl, combine cake mix, butter, egg and vanilla. Knead with hands and add a little water if too thick.
- Press dough evenly into bottom of pan.
- Sprinkle coconut and chips over dough. Be sure to even everything out.
- Combine condensed milk and cookie butter.
- Spread cookie butter mixture over chips/coconut evenly.
- Bake for 23-27 minutes for gooey bars.Bake for a few additional minutes if drier bar is desired. I recommend the gooey bars. The middle of the cake may not appear set but that's okay. Cake will fully set when cooled. It's recommended to allow cookie butter bars to fully cool before slicing. Easier said than done.
