No-Bake Cookie Butter Bars
Three easy layers make up these fun no-bake cookie butter bars. The bottom layer is buttery coconut biscoff cookie heaven that gives a sturdy base with a fabulous crunch. Next comes the middle layer of whipped biscoff cookie buttercream frosting. It’s smooth, sweet, and gloriously scrumptious. Last, but not least, is the top layer of white chocolate cookie butter ganache. Rich, decadent, and utterly delicious. It’s the perfect way to finish off these easy no-bake dessert bars.
Bottom Biscoff Base Layer
Every good no-bake bar needs a solid base structure. It holds everything together and gives us something to grab onto. These cookie butter bars start off much like a Nanaimo Bar with butter, coconut, graham cracker crumbs, and biscoff cookies all mixed together.
Simply melt the butter in a pan or a microwave-safe bowl and mix the remaining base ingredients in. An extra pinch of salt to balance and sweet and you’ve just created a heavenly no-bake base.
The key to this base layer is pressing the mixture firmly into the pan. A crumbly square I do not want, so I spread the mixture in the pan evenly, press down with my spatula, and then I go over it with a heavy-bottomed glass. Using a bit of muscle, press down firmly on the glass as you move it around the pan. Throw that no-bake base into the fridge while you prepare the next layer.
Middle Biscoff Buttercream Layer
Y’all this biscoff buttercream frosting layer is to die for. It’s smooth and sweet and completely addicting. You are going to want to lick the beaters, bowl, and spatula clean. Using the exact same recipe that’s in my Dairy-Free Biscoff Cookie Butter cake, I’ve reduced the measurements to make the amount these no-bake bars need.
Using an offset spatula or butter knife, spread the whipped biscoff frosting on top of the chilled no-bake biscoff cookie base. Try to make it as even and as smooth as possible. We want to create a level surface for that next and final layer. Back into the fridge, these no-bake cookie butter bars go!
Top White Chocolate Cookie Butter Ganache Layer
The piece de resistance. The grand finale. The cherry on top. This last, but certainly not least, layer to these no-bake cookie butter bars is the white chocolate cookie butter ganache. I mean come on…even reading that makes my mouth water! It’s silky, glossy, and so completely delish!
Combine the white chocolate chips and cookie butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30-second increments until fully melted and smooth. Pour this heavenly ganache over the chilled cookie butter bars and again, spread evenly. Back into the fridge for a final chill and soon you’ll be slicing up these bad boy no-bake bars in no time.
