Chocolate Biscoff Cupcakes

Have you noticed all the recipes recently popping up with Biscoff Spread? I had the chance to sample some that came in my TechMUNCH goodie bag. I gobbled up my samples by dipping apples in them, but I knew I needed to jump on this baking with Biscoff spread bandwagon.

When I recently saw a jar at my local grocery store, I grabbed one. Hubby was intrigued and after tasting a bit, I was worried he’d start eating it by the spoonful. I needed to use it ASAP!

If you haven’t tried the spread, it literally tastes just like the Biscoff cookies that we’ve all enjoyed on Delta flights. In fact, the first ingredient is Biscoff cookies. If you’ve never had a Biscoff cookie, the spread has a caramely flavor.

Since the spread is relatively new to the US, there aren’t a whole lot of recipes out there. I decided to pair it with a chocolate cupcake.

I frosted the cupcake with a Biscoff cream cheese frosting and filled it with straight Biscoff spread. Knowing that the spread is pretty sweet, I added a heavy pinch of salt to the filling as well. The salt in these cupcakes really take them to the next level. They’re seriously delicious.

Chocolate Biscoff Cupcakes

Ingredients:

For the Frosting
1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Biscoff Spread
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the Cupcakes
12 of your favorite chocolate cupcakes, completely cooled - I used this recipe
1 batch Biscoff frosting
Biscoff spread
Sea salt

Directions:

For the Frosting
Beat the cream cheese in a mixer for 2 minutes until smooth.

Add the Biscoff spread and beat until completely combined.

Add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Turn the mixer on the lowest setting until powdered sugar is mostly mixed in. Turn mixer up to med and beat for 1-2 minutes. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.

For the Cupcakes
Once cupcakes are completely cooled, use the cone method to remove a portion of the cupcake.

Scoop ~1 tsp of Biscoff spread into each cupcake. Sprinkle a scant 1/8 tsp of sea salt (or a heavy pinch) on top of the spread. Replace the top of the cupcake.

Pipe Biscoff frosting on top of cupcakes. Store in fridge.

    I love white chocolate! It tastes especially good in cheesecake (and blondies, too). Can’t wait to try this recipe.

      I haven’t made a white chocolate cheesecake yet, but I bet the subtleness would be great in cheesecake.

    I never realized blondies had white chocolate! These look so good! I looove white chocolate but love it even more with a burst of semi-sweet too.

      Not all blondies are created equal. Some have white chocolate and some don’t. I think from now on, I’m going to use this recipe for my base recipe for blondies.

    Oooooh these look great! I’m in the same boat with white chocolate. I loooove dark, and always get a little turned off by the “fakeness” of white chocolate, but lately, it’s been a welcome addition.

    ok, so i’m wondering if my appeal to a middle of the road crowd could be semisweet chocolate? what do you think?

      I think semi-sweet would work just fine.
