Belgian Waffles with Speculoos Cookie Butter

I have finally crossed over to the dark side. I found Speculoos Cookie Butter when I was at Trader Joe’s, and I had to buy it to see if it lived up to all the hype. I decided to take a small taste straight out of the jar to see what it was like, and let me tell you – it is beyond amazing. It tastes like gingersnaps in butter form. Of course, I ate a quarter of the jar right then and there put it back in the cabinet until I knew what else to do with it. My husband took it upon himself to make a batch of our favorite Belgian waffles for breakfast, and we spread the Speculoos Cookie Butter on top of them. They didn’t need anything else – they were divine! This could be a very dangerous discovery…
