Okay, I’m going to be up front. I figured this was a throwaway since the original recipe where I saw the Speculoos Cookie Butter Frosting had a chocolate cupcake. It just wasn’t going to be as good, but not everyone at work likes chocolate. Yeah, I know. Kind of dumb. But I worry when I do flavour pairings. Let’s be honest though, vanilla goes with almost everything.
I don’t even know why I bothered worrying, or in fact sourcing the recipe. I used Speculoos spread, that’s true. I used um, a jar? Well, a little less. And margarine and almond milk. And I didn’t measure the powdered sugar. So yeah. I guess follow the recipe as a guide to start. Add way more cookie butter than called for because wow, they taste fantastic.
The coworkers inhaled them. They were really great. The texture was not super pretty with the piping nib I picked out so I melted a few tablespoons of spread and drizzled it over the top. I didn’t have any cookies to crush up or that would have been cute too.
