Super rich and creamy pudding flavored with cookie butter and then topped with crumbled cookie butter cookies
I had nightmares about food during the first week of doing the Whole30 program. That happened three times. The nightmares were so vivid that I thought I was actually awake messing up with my Whole30 adventure by eating those delicious cakes and ice creams. When I am finally and completely awake, I was half relieved that it was just a bad dream and half unhappy that it was not true. Those look extremely delicious! I thought I am just the only one having those dreams, but I saw one video of a group of people trying out the Whole30 program and they also had food dreams. I am glad that I am not alone! 😀
Not only I had food nightmares during this adventure, but also a friend called Biscoff appeared in my dreams for nights and I can see it during the day. Well, not a ghost, but I can actually see a jar of Biscoff beside the microwave oven. I just ignore it as if I don’t see it standing (or sitting, whatever) there. But the sight of it is somehow ‘disturbing’. Why don’t I keep it where I can’t see it, you tell me? I will forget my friend forever and our relationship will be over! Sooooo, one day, Biscoff cornered me and zoomed in its date of expiry. That left me with no choice! Okayyyy, I will attend to the matter soon! Cookie butter going bad, whyyyyy? Well, when you were used to buying stuff in bulk and then you tell them “I am going on a Whole30 adventure. Unfortunately, I could not take you with me. Aha! I have an idea! Let’s give each other space, go through things and think if we still want to be in this relationship!“
Back to Biscoff leaving me with no choice, but to use it…
As I’ve said before, I am trying to refrain myself from spending a LOT on food. The buying in bulk thing happened before I’ve come to my senses, so I looked for a recipe that I have most (if not) of the ingredients. So here goes this delicious pudding…
I may have stirred the mixture for a long time that the texture became thicker than I expected. There were lumps, too. Overall, the end result was fantastic. Cookie butter pudding that is so rich in flavor and topped with Bicoff biscuits – what’s not to love??
Since I am taking a break from my Whole30, I’ve decided to bring something naughty at this week’s Fiesta Friday #188 where I and the talented Nimmi @ Adorable Life are co-hosting. Come and party with Angie and the rest of the gang! Click on the image below. 😉
Cookie Butter Pudding
- 3 cups full-fat milk
- 1 ¾ cup cookie butter
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 large egg yolks
- Cookie butter cookies (I used Biscoff)
- In a small bowl, combine cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
- In a large pot, add in milk and 1/3 cup cookie butter. Give it a good mix. Place on a stove with medium heat. Stir well.
- Add the powder mixture to the pot. Mix until well combined and until boiling. Keep mixing for about 3-5 minutes or just until mixture is smooth.
- In a small bowl, add in egg yolks. Add about ¼ cup of the pudding just to temper the eggs. Mix and place the yolk mixture back to the pot. Add the remaining cookie butter and mix until well combined.
- Transfer pudding into individual cups and top with chopped/crumbled cookie butter cookies.
