In the last few months, my teenager and I have secretly become obsessed with cookie butter. It’s our little share time. We each grab a spoon and the jar of Biscoff or Cookie Butter, and we meet in secret somewhere in the house. We have a little snack together, without my younger two kids knowing about it. We are sneaky like that!
I can’t find Biscoff in any of our local grocery stores for weeks now! Has anyone else noticed this? Unfortunately, the nearest Trader Joe’s is about an hour’s drive. Cookie Butter is deliciously amazing, but I’m not driving two hours round trip for it.
The other day I got this idea to make cookie butter with graham crackers. I’ve been loving the new graham cracker squares (as opposed to the rectangles) I found at the store. I can’t break those rectangular ones in half if my life depended on it. The squares are perfect for my littlest one when she wants a cookie.
I was giving her a graham cracker while she was convincing me she needed three, and I thought graham cracker cookie butter sounded kinda good. I actually went and looked on Pinterest for a recipe, and believe it or not, I could not find any graham cracker cookie butter. What has the world come to?
This is a simple and easy recipe that takes just minutes to whip up. Mine also has a super secret ingredient — no one will guess what it is. Can you guess? It’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Coconut oil, graham crackers, sugar, and peanut butter cups. My 5 yr old wanted to call it Butter Cup Butter. She’s been really into naming recipes lately.
I used my food processor instead of my high powered blender that would have pulverized the crackers, so it has a little grainy texture to it. I like it! It definitely satisfies my cookie butter craving. My 5 yr old loves it. She kept stealing my spatula for “just a taste, momma.”Print

Once you transfer it to a jar, place in the fridge for 30 minutes so it’s not so runny. If you store it in the fridge, microwave it for 30 seconds at a time to make it spreadable. When I left it overnight in the fridge, I microwaved it for 30 seconds and stirred and then an additional 15 second, and it was immediately spreadable again. It still tasted the same as when I had just made it fresh.
Stay tuned because I have a new recipe coming that uses this Graham Cracker Butter for a traditional summer treat!
This is going to be my new thing goodness it looks good and my son would flip. I don’t have to buy that reeses in the store anymore to put on stuff we can just make our own thing.
I can find Biscoff around here, but they are too expensive. Making your own sounds like a great idea and I didn’t know you could do that with graham crackers. I can’t wait to make this.
Why have I never thought of this! My husband would LOVE this LOL
Question, how long does it last after you make it? Does it store well in the refrigerator?
Don’t laugh but I’ve never heard of cookie butter before but I think I want to make some now! This looks amazing. I can’t believe you used graham crackers and reese’s peanut butter cups. Such an amazing combination that I would have never even thought of.
The whole time I am reading this my mind is screaming that I need to have this butter on some vanilla ice cream. Also, I like the fact that it can be stored for awhile, which allows your to try on other items. This will probably be good with celery sticks for the kids.
I have never heard of this before. It looks and sounds great. As soon as I saw the reese cups I KNEW I would love this though, I’m going to have to give it a try. It looks tasty, and it’s different than what we are used to I’m sure my kiddos would love it too! Yum
Wow! I’ve never even heard of this before and it sounds amazing! Who doesn’t love graham crackers and peanut butter? We love reece’s at our house and like trying new little snacks, so I will definitely have to give this one a try next time we’re feeling snacky.
I don’t like cookie butter (I KNOW!) but this sounds super delicious! I love the addition of the peanut butter cups because they are one of my favorite treats!! How necessary is the additional sugar?
You can skip it. Just based on taste, I thought it needed a little extra sweetness.
Oh my this looks amazing! I am gluten free so I am now on the hunt for gluten free graham crackers because this sounds so yummy! What a creative recipe, thanks so much for sharing it with us!
I remember seeing this on FB. I knew I had to stop by to see how to do this. I LOVE only Honeymaid’s Graham crackers and this would so fit into my life perfectly. Honeymaid’s are hard to find over here though, so if I get them, my mom has to ship a box. 🙂 When my next shipment arrives, I will try this out but without the Reese because I don’t like peanut butter.
Another recipe to try! Though I’m not a fan of cookie butter, this recipe would come handy once the holiday season kicks in. It would be a nice giveaway to neighbors and even to relatives during a family reunion on Christmas day. 🙂
