Cookie Butter Truffle Brownies

cookie butter truffle brownies |pale yellowDo you know what day it is?  Yes, it is hump day, but that’s not what I’m talking about.  Today is my two year blog-o-versery!  TWO YEARS!  When I started this blog I hoped it would have longevity, but didn’t know how long I would last; sometimes my level of commitment isn’t so great.

cookie butter truffle brownies |pale yellowHere are some delightful brownies to hopefully ring in another 2 years of blogging!  These are probably the best brownies I’ve ever made!  There are 28 brownie/bar recipes on this site and I’m telling you, this one is definitely in the top 3!

http://paleyellow.net/category/browniesbars/The brownies are super rich and fudgy; not cake-like at all.  The cookie butter truffles are fantastic little nuggets to sink your teeth into! Confession time – I bought a jar chocolate/cookie butter swirl months ago from Trader Joe’s and have been eating it by the spoonful, I thought it was time for some appropriate adult behavior, so I used it all up here!  Please celebrate my blog-o-versery with me and bake these brownies!

Cookie Butter Truffle Brownies
Adapted from Bakergirl
Yield – 16 pieces

1/2 cup cookie butter (I used Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie & Cocoa Swirl)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
12 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup chocolate chunks + more for the top

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F and line an 8×8” pan with parchment paper.  Liberally spray the parchment paper with Baker’s Joy.
  2. Mix together the cookie butter and powdered sugar until no longer sticky.  Roll into 10 balls and place in the freezer until you’re ready to use.
  3. Brown the butter in a small saucepan on the stove.  The butter should be a deep amber color.  Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment beat together the browned butter, sugar, and cocoa powder until well combined.  Beat in the salt, water, and vanilla.  Beat in the eggs one at a time.  Scrape the bowl as needed.
  5. Turn the mixer off and add in the flour and chocolate chunks.  Beat on the lowest speed until just combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.  Place the cookie butter truffles throughout the dough and press down.  Sprinkle some more chocolate chunks on top.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minute or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  8. Cool completely before cutting.cookie butter truffle brownies |pale yellow
