I’ve been on an intense search for Biscoff Spread the past two months.
It all started when I was reading a food blog and read about Trader Joe’s “Cookie Butter” about two months ago. I was intrigued, so I went to the nearest Trader Joe’s (which is about 30 minutes away). My search was cut short when they told me the had just run out of their newest shipment. My hopes weren’t completely shot; I kept looking online and realized pretty much everyone’s store was sold out.
That’s when I found out about Biscoff Spread because they’re pretty much the same thing- peanut butter, only not. Lol. It’s just a spread that can be used for all of the same things peanut butter is used for and it’s made up mostly of cookies, so it’s definitely not a health food like peanut butter, but it’s worth the health risks!
Anyway, I looked everywhere for Biscoff Spread only to be disappointed again and again.
I’ve actually been looking for the last month and have probably checked a total of 10 stores for this stuff. I live in a bigger city now, so I obviously checked here, but I also checked in my podunk little hometown.
I went home this weekend to go to see a comedy show– Josh Wolf and Colin Jost– which was amazing, but that’s a story for another post…ANYWAY, I went home and I was at the store getting ingredients to make a mock Biscoff spread, and Kellen and I turned the corner and Kellen said “Look!” and I screamed (embarrassing) because:
…there it was!
Thank you, LORD! What are the odds of that happening? I grabbed two, and it’s been one day and half of the jar is gone. I’ve had it on oatmeal, ice cream, bananas, and pretzels. I’m pretty obsessed, and that’s saying a lot because my standards for this stuff were extremely high. There ya have it, my unpaid Biscoff review.
I still wanted to recreate this for anyone who was like me two days ago (poor, poor people… I can sympathize), but I failed.
Don’t be sad though, because I came up with an even better idea– cake batter butter!
If you’re looking for Biscoff Spread, this is not it, but it is still super delicious. It tastes like it sounds…awesome and cake batter-y. I made mine with cinnamon almonds and gluten free cake batter, but you can use any combination you want. Let your imagination soar! I’ve been going back and forth between this almond butter and Biscoff Spread all day. I’m gonna overdose, probably.
Cake Batter Almond (or any other nut) Butter
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup cake mix
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Super simple- mix all ingredients in a food processor until smooth and creamy.
