If Cookie Butter, Speculoos ice cream and Cookies and Creme cookie butter weren’t enough, Trader Joe’s has given us yet another reason to get that sugar high on: Dark Chocolate Speculoos Cookie Butter Cups. Think a peanut butter cup, but even better.

I know what you’re thinking right now. Is that even possible? The answer is yes, I promise.

Trader Joe’s has managed to combine the bitterness of dark chocolate with the gingerbread-y goodness of cookie butter…and it’s indescribably delicious. It’s one of those food combinations that seems so obvious in hindsight, like Oreos and peanut butter (thank God for The Parent Trap) or Nutella and that spoon you lick it off of when the bread and pretzels are too far away. Chocolate plus cookie butter? Duh! It even has the same silky texture as the filling of a peanut butter cup. But it’s cookie butter!

Next time you’re in Trader Joe’s, check out these treats. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
