Speculoos Cookie Butter Brownies Recipe

I had a jar of Speculoos Cookie Butter at home that nobody was touching. Nikko's household basically had healthy-eating, anti-sugar folks and wouldn't even have a bit of the sick, sugary potion. Since I didn't want to be finishing it all by myself, I came up with the idea of converting it to brownie toppings -- just in time for celebrating one of my friends' baby shower around early June.

I basically adapted Lauren's Latest's Speculoos Brownie recipe, doubled the quantities and tweaked it a bit.

Here are the ingredients for the batter:

For the topping:

With a little help from my mamita, here's how I did it:

1) Melt the butter, chocolate chips and cocoa powder in a small pot over low heat. Once smooth, remove from heat.
One bar of Anchor Butter is just about right
A pack of Van Houten's Semi-Sweet chocolate chips

2) Stir in 1 Cup granulated sugar, four eggs, 1.5 tsp vanilla extract, baking powder, salt and all purpose flour.

3) Stir until smooth.

4) Pour into a 9x13 pan.

4) Toss in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Start checking every minute thereafter using the toothpick test on the sides. This will make for a gooier brownie. I made the mistake of going up to 19 minutes -- take note that darker / insulated pans cook faster.

6) While baking, start mixing 6 tbsp butter, 6 tbsp Speculoos Cookie Butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 tbsp milk in a bowl.

7) Mix until even.

Here's my slightly overdone brownie :( I should have checked starting 15 minutes onwards.

8) Trim the edges and spread the topping across the top. ( I left about 1/4 of the toppings in the bowl, worrying it might make the brownies too sweet)

9) Toss a couple of handfuls of walnuts for fun.

Voila! The flavours were heavenly, really chocolatey and not too sweet. The only thing that could be improved was the gooeyness of the cake. Take my cue to check starting the 15 minute mark, especially if you're using a dark pan Not bad for my first time at baking!

We divided everything to 32 portions:

And here's the shocking approximate Caloric and Sugar content per cube. *faints*. I think I had around 10 pcs of these all to myself!
