Chocolate & Cookie Butter Bake

I’ve partnered with Sprouts Farmers Market to bring y’all this Chocolate & Cookie Butter Bake. As always, all opinions are my own. Thanks so much for supporting the brands that keep this Srilankan Runnin!

Chocolate & Cookie Butter Bake

While I might not be the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day, I am a huge fan of the happily-ever-after (even though it has eluded me thus far), and, the happy-ending. So, when 7 seasons of Gilmore Girl’s culminated in a finale that left my daughter and me with more questions than answers, saying we were miffed is putting it mildly!

There were hints as to what may be – but, we wanted more! By golly, we wanted answers! My daughter is convinced that we are a real life version of the Gilmore Girls (minus the pop tart and pizza habit) so she convinced me to buy all 7 seasons on DVD. And, just about every Christmas break, we watched and rewatched those episodes trying to get closure – but it eluded us!

So, when we heard that the Gilmore Girls will be back after a 9-year break – we were thrilled! Yes! Finally, we can have a happy ending to our questions – hopefully. Finally, we can find out if Luke and Lorelai have a happily-ever-after, after all!

Jim Carrey once said, “…isn’t it cool when the days that are supposed to feel good, actually do?” That pretty much summarized how we felt that day we found out about season 8 of the Gilmore girls.

Aaaaaannnd, since we are chasing that feel-good feeling – we have to talk about this layered Chocolate & Cookie Butter Bake in individual serving sizes!

I really don’t have words to describe this other than maybe “mmm mmm mmm!”

I started out wanting to make a souffle with the Cookie Butter I received from Sprouts Farmers Market, but I didn’t have any flour in the house. So, I figured I would try making something similar to the flour-less skillet cake I made awhile back.

Only, employing a different technique with the eggs. Instead of adding them in whole like I did when I made the skillet cake, I separated them – added the yolk into each the cookie butter layer and chocolate layer, whipped the whites separately and folded them into each layer. The result was a way fluffier version of that skillet cake. Don’t you love how a different technique can have such a different result – with the same ingredients?

@Tasteworkshop on Instagram suggested I call this a puff as it didn’t have the ingredients of a souffle, but, I wasn’t quite sure this was quite as puffy as some of the puffs I’ve seen – so I settled on calling it a Chocolate & Cookie Butter Bake.

Decorated with raspberries and melted chocolate and melted cookie butter, am thinking this would be a slightly better-for-you Valentine’s Day dessert for all of y’all celebrating it – for me – why it’s one of the foods to fuel me through 50% off chocolate sales on the 15th!

This little Chocolate and Cookie Butter bake only requires 5 ingredients, but is just so mind-blowingly tasty! Definitely worth a try!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate roughly chopped, I used 50% cacao

  1. First, butter 2 ramekins and then spread castor sugar to coat each ramekin, shaking out any extra. Then place ramekins in the fridge
  2. Preheat your oven to 350
  3. Grab 2 pans and 2 bowls
  4. In one pan, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1/2 cup chocolate and place over a very low flame until chocolate and coconut oil melt - whisking constantly (took me about 3 minutes) Please remove from heat before it gets super hot. Let come to room temperature.
  5. In the other pan, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1/2 cup cookie butter and place over a very low flame until cookie butter and coconut oil melt - whisking constantly (took me about 3 minutes) Please remove from heat before it gets super hot. Let come to room temperature.
  6. Separate the eggs, placing the egg whites into a bowl and the yolks into another.
  7. Using an electric hand mixer, whip the egg whites and 2 teaspoons sugar until stiff peaks form
  8. Place 1 yolk in the pan with cooled chocolate mix and whisk till well incorporated.
  9. Place the other yolk into the pan with cooled cookie butter mix and whisk till well incorporated.
  10. Fold 1/2 the whipped egg whites into the chocolate mix and the other 1/2 into the cookie butter mix with a spatula. Make sure to fold it and not whisk it.
  11. Take ramekins out of fridge and spoon cookie butter mix and then chocolate mix into each ramekin.
  12. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
  13. Garnish with raspberries, melted cookie butter and melted chocolate and enjoy.
  14. *BTW, I also made 2 and refrigerated them and reheated them the next day for 10 minutes at 325 and they were delicious - in case you want to store one.

I was introduced to cookie butter last week and I honestly can't get enough of it. I have bought so many containers of this stuff and I am now looking for different kinds of recipes to use it with. This chocolate cookie butter sounds so amazing and I can't wait to give it a try this weekend.

Thanks Lindsay! Unfortunately, wheat is listed as an ingredient in the Cookie butter :( But, I made this with 1/2 c almond butter and 2 tablespoons brown sugar and pinch of cinnamon for my daughter and she loved it!
