I am so late to the Biscoff party. And for that, I deeply apologize.
A few months ago, you couldn’t go anywhere in the food blog world and not see Biscoff something or other. What is Biscoff you ask? It is like peanut butter in consistency, but it a spread made from ground cookies. If you have ever flown Delta, it is the spicy cookie that they give you with your Diet Coke. It is sort of like what peanut butter is to Americans, and nutella is to Italians. It is called Speculoos in some European countries, you can call it whatever you want, I just call it heaven in a jar.
I have found it in my regular grocery store, but Traders Joes makes a speculoos spread, and I always have been able to get it at World Market. If you have never tried it, do yourself a favor and pick up a jar.
These cupcakes are a great way to showcase this delicious product. These cupcakes are unique in that the tops harden a bit like a cookie, while the bottom is soft like a cupcake. I found these cute fall colored chocolate candies at Cracker Barrel of all places, and have been puttin them on everything to get into the mood for fall.
