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.

  1. Aimee,
    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 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Can’t wait to try these. Just wondering what you drizzled on the top?  Is it caramel sauce?  Or do you usually leave it plain with just the frosting?
