ever tried the Speculoos Cookie Butter from Trader Joes? If not, I suggest you try it out. I’ve used it on toasted banana bread, or
straight from the jar. It’s just that

Combine the cocoa, salt and baking powder, set
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low
heat. Turn off the heat; add the sugar and stir to combine. Return
to the heat until it’s hot again, but not bubbling.

placed it all in my KitchenAid stand mixer because I am lazy .:lol:.)
