Rich Chocolate Cupcakes topped with a creamy, homemade Biscoff Frosting! This nut free chocolate cupcake recipe will be the hit of any party or bake sale.
Why this Recipe Works
Who else here is head-over-heels for Biscoff spread? If you’ve never had it before, you need to head to your nearest well stocked grocery store and pick up a jar or two or three.
It’s hard to describe the taste experience if you’ve never had a Biscoff cookie–velvety and smooth with a flavor that’s somewhere between a graham cracker and a gingersnap. You just need to try it!
- I paired my favorite chocolate cupcake recipe with a Biscoff buttercream frosting. The Biscoff and the chocolate are a perfect match.
- As a huge bonus, they are also totally nut free so I can share them with my friends who have allergies to peanuts and tree nuts.
My new motto: In a world full of chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting, dare to be a Chocolate Cupcake with Biscoff frosting.
Inspirational, I know. At the very least, I hope you’re inspired to make some Chocolate Biscoff Cupcakes!
Homemade biscoff buttercream is no more difficult than making a traditional vanilla buttercream frosting.
In this recipe, I used just four ingredients:
- Powdered sugar
- Milk (to achieve the perfect consistency)
All you have to do is beat everything together until it reaches fluffy frosting perfection.
I LOVE that Biscoff Frosting is not too thick, so it’s easy to spread, but it still has that creamy rich consistency I crave in my buttercream!
I took a little extra Biscoff, put it in a small glass bowl, and drizzled it over the top of the frosted cupcakes. SO GOOD.
Tips & Tricks
- Make sure to use creamy Biscoff in the frosting, not the crunchy variety.
- Can’t find Biscoff? In some stores it’s labeled as Speculoos spread or Cookie Butter. They’re all the same thing and will work perfectly here.
- Garnish ideas: I love to decorate cupcakes with chocolate sprinkles! If you can get Biscoff cookies, those also make a great topping for these. Cut them in half to stick in the mound of frosting on top or break them into crumbs for Biscoff sprinkles.
- Store cupcakes in a covered container at room temperature. They will keep well for a couple of days.
- Chocolate cupcakes freeze beautifully! Store them in the freezer unfrosted in a freezer safe container, then thaw and whip up a fresh batch of Biscoff frosting when you’re ready to enjoy them.
- Biscoff frosting isn’t just for cupcakes! Use it on full sized white cake, cake balls, spread on our easy chocolate cake, or use as a filling in whoopie pies, you name it.
