Chocolate Biscoff Cupcakes

by aimee @ shugarysweets on August 2, 2012

My love for Biscoff is never-ending. I paired my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe with Biscoff buttercream frosting.

The Biscoff and the chocolate are a perfect match.

I made these for my perfect bloggie bestie match…

I recently had a playdate with one of my favorite bloggers, Jocelyn, from Inside BruCrew Life. We began our “date” at Ikea, made a stop at Jungle Jims, and then spent HOURS hanging out at my house. All the while our kids got to know eachother as well. I don’t know about her, but mine are begging to do it again soon! I would have to agree with them.

How often do you get to talk with someone who completely “gets you.” We talked bloggy stuff all afternoon, into the evening. At one point my sweet hubby looked at us and said, “now I get it. I understand how you feel when I talk about my work and it goes over your head.”

Anyways, Jocelyn is just as adorable as she looks and sounds on her blog. I love that we both showed up in sparkly tank tops :)

 But, back to the cupcakes. I knew I had to make her cupcakes. And I desperately wanted to make something with Biscoff. These were so good, and I sent her home with a bunch too, because I would have eaten them all myself.

I’m glad I sent them away too. In return she gave me samples of these krispie treats and these cheesecake brownies! YUM.

    Averie @ Averie Cooks August 2, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    perfect looking cupcakes! love that recipe for the cupcakes – half cup of coffee in the batter is pretty significant! But these are awesome! And what a great meetup for you two and your kiddos – that’s fabulous!!


    Aimee August 2, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    You can always substitute milk or water for the coffee….I love how the coffee brings out the flavor of the dark chocolate cocoa!


    Ellen B Cookery August 2, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Looks like I’m going to have to get me some biscoff. These cupcakes are to drool for!


    Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust August 2, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    I always click on your posts through linky parties Aimee, too funny! Although by now, I usually can tell it’s you. I’m still super jealous you got to get together with Jocelyn! I super love these cupcakes too. I just saw in my walmart add that they now have Cruncy – I cannot wait to get my hands on a jar.


    Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel August 2, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    I have one container of biscoff at home…what to make, what to make!? It’s between these, the whoopie pies and the cream pie – might have to get another jar, soon.


    Aimee August 2, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    TheMoonAndMe August 2, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    I’d never had Biscoff until a few weeks ago. Oh my, they are so yummy! Now I’m rethinking the s’mores cupcakes I was gonna make for a bbq this weekend. HMMMM.


    sally @ sallys baking addiction August 2, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    These are amazing! Cute picture of the two of you!


    Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious August 3, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    These might be the best cupcakes ever! I’m a recent Biscoff spread addict so you know I’ll be making these ASAP!


    Jen Laceda | Tartine and Apron Strings August 4, 2012 at 5:01 am

    Hi, I found your blog through a mutual Pinterest group board…I’m glad I came :)

    We don’t get Biscoff here in Canada (or maybe I haven’t been looking hard enough). Is this like Nutella? The cupcakes look delish and I just want to lick the frosting!


    Aimee August 5, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Nope, not like Nutella. It tastes more like a smashed up graham cracker/gingersnap combo. You can substitute peanut butter or nutella, but it won’t taste the same at all! You can also order it online, at if you’d like. Worth it. Every cent.


    Becky August 4, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    How fun that you got to hang out with a fellow blogger. I recently got to meet Christiane from Taking on the Magazines, and we had a lot of fun, too.

    Your cupcakes are amazing, especially with the Biscoff Spread. I have to get some soon.


    Dusti August 4, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Yum – I love biscoff – can’t wait to try this.


    Kristen - Dine & Dish August 6, 2012 at 4:21 am

    Anything with Biscoff in it makes me happy! These look fantastic!


    Robyn August 6, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    These look amazing. I’ll take a dozen!


    Michelles Tasty Creations August 7, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    These look and sound amazing! I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing at Creative Thursday each week. I appreciate YOU! Can’t wait to see what you link up next :)


    Didee May August 8, 2012 at 8:13 am

    Those cupcakes look divine! Looks like I will have to order Biscoff Spread on Amazon if I am to get it here in Australia though. I love Anna’s thins which we can buy in our supermarkets so I’m very keen to try this spread.


    Cheryl April 25, 2014 at 6:42 am

    So funny to find this recipe today as I bought my first jar of Biscoff a few days ago …. and of course, after trying it, 2 thoughts immediately came to mind. One, where has this been all my life?, and two, this just might be what stands between me and a bathing suit this summer! Wow! I will definitely be trying this recipe!
