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.

    Congrats on your first “real” yule log. I wasn’t crazy about the buttercream either, though I did like the coffee flavor!

    I went for raspberry inside too – and agree that chocolate frosting would be tastier. Good job!

    Very pretty! I thought this one was harder than the “Buche” I made in French class too.

    Job well done. I made it with chocolate buttercream and I think it would have gone lovely with raspberry.

    As worldly as I thought I was at the time, I never could have attempted anything this complex in high school. You did a great job with your… it looks luscious!

    I hope you had a joyous holiday, and that 2008 brings you health and happiness, laughter and love.
