Chocolate Chip Biscoff Blondies
This is an ode to a little store known as Trader Joe's......if you're lucky enough to have one in your area, you love it.......if you're not, you're envious of those that do have one (my parents and my sister would fall into this category, living in Texas and Vermont). Lucky for me........since they originated in Southern California, we've got a bunch of them around here! And it has become my main grocery store these days......I only go to the big grocery stores for the stuff that Trader Joe's doesn't carry. Well, one of the things that Trader Joe's didn't carry was Biscoff spread.....that ooey gooey super duper yummy spread made of crushed Biscoff cookies. The only place I had found it around here was at Cost Plus. Then I spied this on a recent trip to Trader Joe's (look at the jar on the right)......
What? Are you kidding me?? Same size jar and everything.....almost identical taste! (Almost, because I think the Biscoff spread was a tad more sweet?) And that's not it.....check out what else I found.....
Could it be?? Could they have Biscoff cookies as well as the spread? Could this be the awesomest store in the entire world? Check it out......
Oh yeah! The look the same! And taste? Taste was exactly the same to me.....the original Biscoff was maybe a tad crispier.....but otherwise, you would never know the difference. Happy happy joy joy! So I got home and had to find something to do with these, before I just started dunking the cookies directly into the spread!
I remembered seeing a Biscoff blondie recipe from Mother Thyme a couple of weeks ago, and I figured that would be a great one to try because it uses both the spread AND the cookies. You actually make a cookie crust out of crushed Biscoff cookies, and then top it off with a yummy chocolate chip blondie batter that has a whole cup of Biscoff spread in it! Yum! These were delicious! The hubby took them to work, and they disappeared (my favorite kind of dessert!). I definitely will make these again!
Check out Mother Thyme for the recipe....and Enjoy!!
