Homemade 'Cookie Butter' - Oh Yeah Ya Hear me!

Blogland can sometimes get you into a whole heap of trouble.  Over at A Trifle Rushed I read about 'Popcorn Treats'.  Euan and I found a fantastic 'Ducky Popcorn' maker in a charity shop for £3.00.

 It uses hot air to pop the corn and make delicious Popcorn in minutes with no mess at all.  Air Popped corn makes a delicious healthy snack.  A small amount of corn goes a very long way and a small 'Ducky' hat full makes a huge bowl of Popcorn.  It is fun to use 'Ducky' to pop corn too.  Perfect for TV or Movie night snacking.  I read Jude's post about 'Cookie Butter coated Popcorn' and became obsessed with the idea.  I had never heard of such an invention as 'Cookie Butter'.  I set about some research immediately.  I found a recipe Here and adapted it quite a lot.  I have never heard of Spekulatius Cookies either but tracked some down in a 'German' Supermarket as they are Seasonal and eaten accross Europe for 'The Feast Of Saint Nicholas' on December 5th.

  My version of 'Cookie Butter' goes something like this:

600g of Spekulatius Biscuits  (Speculoos)  These are a delicious, seasonal, spiced biscuit.
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 tsp of Vanilla Essence
4 Tsp of Ground Cinnamon (well it is nearly Christmas)
2 tsp of Mixed Ground Spice
Approximately a Mug of Vegetable Oil
Approximately half a mug of skimmed milk
(I pretty much guessed quantities and whizzed with my hand blender until I go the taste and consistency that I wanted.  Oooops it took a lot of taste testing to get it just right)!

Oh Yes...Just right! 

I made one great big jar full and a teacup full.  I will be making some more next week and putting it into smaller jars for Christmas gifts.
               Euan thinks it is absolutely delicious too and has had it spread on crackers.  He said he would like it in sandwiches too.  I fancy it in my porridge or on rice pudding or toast or maybe just with a spoon!  Of course we must try it on freshly popped corn too.  For now we have eaten quite enough though as it sure aint Weight Watchery!  It is a lovely Spiced Festive treat though.  You really must give it a go.


  1. Oh my, that looks yummy! Dayle's family made "chocolate popcorn" when he was growing up. They mixed cocoa powder and butter and sugar and water and Karo syrup and boiled it until softball stage and poured it over popcorn. Yummy!
