Penotti Cookie Butters and Spreads

The Penotti line of hazelnut spreads and cookie butters is going to be new to many readers but the Dutch company has been around since 1970. Depending on the ingredients used, the products are certified organic, GMO-free with no artificial colours & flavours or preservatives. The ingredients are also sustainably sourced, including some Fair Trade ingredients.

My absolute favourite was the Cookie Notti, a cookie butter made from Belgian Speculoos Cookies. It was caramel-y flavoured with a texture much like peanut butter. I was hooked. I found myself sneaking a spoonful and eating it straight from the spoon each night after dinner. My 17 year old son loved it as much as I did.

For this recipe I set out to use the Penotti Cookies and Milk variety in a sandwich cookie but truthfully any of your Penotti favourites will work. I like how a little barrier of chocolate hides the yummy, creamy surprise inside. 

Selected Penotti products can be found in various grocery stores across Canada including Loblaws, Sobeys, Metro, Thrifty Foods, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, Buy Low Market, H.Y. Louie, Co-Op, Walmart and Whole Foods.
