Chocolate Cookie Butter Blossoms is a twist on a peanut butter blossom by using cookie butter instead. It gives this classic cookie a whole new taste.
Day 2 in my big 12 days of cookies! I am getting great feedback on Cookie 1, the Lemon Pomegranate Cookies. However, will admit, I am a little trouble with that cookie. Why? Because I recently installed a new social share tool and it got me into trouble.
Long story short, I installed MassPlanner on the advice of another food blogger. I do love it. It is really helping me with engagement on my social sites like Instagram and Facebook. With the tool, I can schedule shares to the Facebook groups.
That was when I got into trouble. I’m in Facebook jail for 5 days. I can not post to groups. Posting to groups is vital for a food blog on Facebook. I didn’t realize I set the group option so soon together. You see it uses seconds instead of minutes. It was posting every 30 seconds to 150 groups. It looks like I was a spammer.
Once my sentence comes off on Tuesday the 6th, I will set the tool up correctly and share these cookies. So I can not wait. Other than that mishap, I do love this tool.
Chocolate Cookie Butter Blossoms
I have been doing my grocery shopping in Sandusky Ohio. Most know Sandusky because it is the home of Cedar Point. Anyway, there is a Meijers there and I love shopping there. I have an APP for Meijers on my phone, and it lets you clip and use coupons that when I check out all I need to do is put in my phone number. If I clipped the coupon on the APP, it takes the coupon off. So easy and I love it.
So, there was a coupon for cookie butter. Personally, I never heard of cookie butter, so I had to do a little research on it. They had three kinds and the chocolate cookie butter sounded the best to me.
So I bought it since I had the coupon. Flash forward to me coming up with this Chocolate Cookie Butter Blossoms recipe. I had asked my co-workers what cookies they liked. One said “Peanut Butter Blossoms.”
That was when I started thinking. I have that chocolate cookie butter. What if I substituted that cookie butter for peanut butter? Would that work? Well you never know until you try, right?
I decided let’s do this. I substitution, and the Chocolate Cookie Butter Blossoms was born! They are simply amazing. It really gives the classic peanut butter blossom cookie a whole new taste.
