Move Over, Nutella: No-Machine Cookie Butter Ice Cream

For a while, Nutella was the star. But Nutella’s time in the spotlight has been diminishing (although I’ll always love you the same, Nutella). We’ve all kown it was coming. Yes. I’m talking about Cookie Butter basically taking Nutella’s ever growing kingdom of fans and converting them to be on Cookie Butter’s side. Cookie Butter, you are evil. But anyway enough with some crazy story of mine, time to make ice cream for you! What could be a better combo than cookie butter and ice cream? I mean, you’ve got an ice cream that is packed with the speculoos cookie flavor, that warm, cinnamony, spicy cookie that everyone loves. And, this recipe only contains 5 ingredients and takes basically no time to whip up (it’s no-machine!).

We Love You Trader Joe’s: Molten Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter Microwave Mug Cake

Just yesterday I raided Trader Joe’s of all the pumpkin foods they have for pumpkin season! And the greatest thing ever created I finally found (I know, I’m pretty behind in the world’s advances). It was like it was slow motion. The wind blew in my hair, an angelic light made my face glow. It was just me and … Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter? Yes. Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter. For those of you who don’t know (but I’m pretty sure you do know), Trader Joe’s cookie butter is like heaven. It is sweet, creamy and just plain dreamy. But they outdid themselves. Trader Joe’s has sprinkled that pumpkin spice magic all over their already perfect cookie butter and made it perhaps one of the best things that will ever hit your tongue. If you have ever tried the Pumpkin Spice Oreos, this cookie butter tastes legit exactly like the filling. So go. Buy it. Now. And naturally, as soon as I laid my eyes on this Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter, the first thing that popped into my mind was “mug cake.” So here it is, Molten Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter Microwave Mug Cake.
