biscoff cupcakes with biscoff buttercream recipeI 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.

    Love, love, love these! I’m definitely on the bandwagon, I can’t get enough. These are stunning photos too, Bree!

  4. I have yet to try Biscoff. Colorado doesn’t seem to have biscoff anywhere, and believe me I checked multiple places. However, down here in the south I was able to find some, in every grocery store too! So I have picked up a jar and now it’s sitting here, taunting me because I have too many recipes stacked up to not know what to make first :P

    And I love the little fall candies on top of your cupcakes. I’m so in the mood for fall I can’t wait :)

    The icing calls for cream, what cream exactly?

  27. Brooke says:

    For people who are searching for Biscoff in Europe, they are called Lotus cookies there. Not sure if the spread is available there yet or not. But the cookies have been around for ages.

  28. Actually, Biscoff sells all of their products from their own website. http://www.shopbiscoff.com/ and they ship anywhere in the USA, but not internationally. It’s under $10 for 2 jars or $22 for a 3 1/2 POUND JAR… for serious cookie butter eaters!
