Why KJ Loves
Cookie Butter Monster Cookies
This is Christmas in a cookie! It’s hard to not be jolly after taking a bite of one of these cookies – perfect for the holiday season!
What makes this a holiday monster cookie?
These monster cookies get a Christmas twist with cookie butter.
Cookie butter is a spread made with ground-up speculoos cookies. These spiced cookies are traditional holiday treats often made in the winter in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
Cookie butter has become popular in the US—and I’m not mad about it! It has a slightly gingerbread-like flavor with a smooth, peanut butter-like texture.
The only thing better than eating cookie butter with a spoon is eating it in these Christmas monster cookies.
I get my cookie butter at Trader Joe’s. But you can also usually find it at other local grocery stores. It may be labeled “speculoos cookie butter.”
A Decorative Touch
Make these monster cookies extra-festive by using holiday-colored M&Ms and some white chocolate.
I’d highly recommend saving some extra M&Ms and white chocolate to top off the cookie dough balls before they go in the oven.
The holiday colors will have you singing Christmas songs all day. I can’t help but hum “Holly Jolly Christmas” with these in the oven.
