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.

    Just wondering if it’s ok to double or triple this recipe or does it need to be done in small batches?
    Thanks!

    I’ve been making this recipe for years now and it is always a huge success. I make one slight change, I add a 1/2 teaspoon of espresso powder at the sugar stage and I love how it brings out the chocolate to a different level.

      Oh that’s a great change. I’ve never tried adding espresso powder to my chocolate chip cookies. I’m going to have to try that next time for sure!
