Two ingredients are all you need to make this addictive, creamy candy! It’s like a “cheater” fudge, and all you need is two ingredients, a microwave and 5-minutes. So easy. So simple. Does it get any better than that?!
So what is cookie butter you may ask??? Well, cookie butter is a decadent treat that is typically made from pulverized spice cookies, a fat (usually vegetable oil, sometimes condensed milk), flour and a whole lot of sugar, until it’s spreadable like nut butter. If you have never tried cookie butter, then run. Now. To the grocery store and grab yourself a few jars (you can find it next to the peanut butter).
You can bake with cookie butter, spread it on anything that you would put peanut butter on and when added to melted almond bark, cookie butter creates a creamy, melt in your mouth candy. One of the most popular recipes on the blog is my 2 Ingredient Peanut Butter Candy. I took that recipe and swapped out the peanut butter for cookie butter. Why have I never done this before?!
2 Ingredient Cookie Butter CandyPrint Recipe
- 1 (24-ounce) package White Almond Bark or Candi-Quik, chopped into chunks
- 1 (14-ounce) jar of cookie butter (creamy or crunchy)
- pinch of salt
Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Set aside.
In a large microwave safe bowl, add the entire package of almond bark or Candi-Quik. Chopping it into chunks first will speed up the melting time. Melt the almond bark in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, checking and stirring every 20-seconds. Remove from the microwave once the almond bark is melted. You don't want to over heat the almond bark or it will scorch. Immediately add the entire jar of cookie butter and pinch of salt to the melted almond bark. Stir until ingredients are completely incorporated. Pour mixture into prepared pan and spread it evenly in the pan. Let set on the counter to cool for 10-minutes, then transfer to the refrigerator to finish cooling.
Once candy is completely cooled, cut into desired sized squares.
Store candy in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Candy stays fresh for 7 days.
