3 of the best ingredients around are joyously singing as they come together in this FANTASTIC dessert. And I on the other hand, am joyously singing as I’m shoving these into my mouth.

So yeah, it’s only obvious to use COOKIE BUTTER! Woohoo!

These are guilt free in my book as they have greek yogurt (protein!), dark chocolate (antioxidants!) and cookie butter (yumminess!). Oh, and they only take 10 minutes to make, 20 minutes of patience, and 2 seconds to devour. They literally melt in your mouth 🙂 Om nom nom …
