These delicious Chocolate Biscoff Cups are an easy candy recipe to make! They have a chocolate shell with creamy Biscoff Spread on the inside!
We just got back from our summer vacation which lasted most of July and ended in Duluth, MN. We stayed down in Canal Park and did lots of walking. We saw huge ships come into port, fed the seagulls, climbed on the rocks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the time we woke up until our heads hit our pillows at night. There are so many great shops to visit in Canal Park and one of our favorites is a chocolate shop. Between me, my two friends and all of our kids we bought everything from caramel apples to fudge to chocolate dipped gummy bears. While looking at all of the delectable chocolate choices, I became inspired to make some of my own chocolate candy treats. I knew that I had a shipment of Biscoff Spread waiting for me at home and I decided to use it to make Chocolate Biscoff Cups.
Have you ever tried Biscoff Spread? This was my first time and I’ve got to admit that it is delicious! Biscoff Spread is Biscoff cookies in a spread form instead of a cookie form. It comes in creamy and crunchy and is an Eurporean alternative to peanut butter. Biscoff Spread is made in Belgium and like all Biscoff products it has all-natural ingredients, is preservative-free, is free of trans fat and cholesterol, is made without genetically modified ingredients or artificial colors, is vegan and does not contain nuts! Awesome, right? People enjoy using Biscoff Spread on toast, with apple slices, in sandwiches, in recipes and straight from the jar (yes, we most certainly tried it that way and love it). Want more ideas? Check out the Biscoff Pinterest Page! Biscoff Spread is available in the peanut butter aisle at retail, club, drug stores nationwide and at Biscoff.com. Check here for a list of stores.
These Chocolate Biscoff Cups are really easy to make. Melt chocolate candy coating in the microwave. Using a knife, the back of a spoon or a kitchen brush, add melted chocolate to the sides of mini foil baking cups. They need to be foil so that they can be peeled away when ready to eat.
Allow the chocolate to harden. Then, recoat the sides with chocolate and cover the bottom of the mini foil muffin cup.
Allow the chocolate to harden, again. Then, add 1 teaspoon of Biscoff Spread to the center of each cup, smoothing it out on top.
Cover the Biscoff Spread with more melted chocolate.
Once the chocolate has hardened, peel away the foil cup and enjoy!
Doesn’t that look blissful?
If you have some Chocolate Biscoff Cups left over, you can wrap them and tie them with baker’s twine to share with others. I am going to be adding these to my holiday baking this year because they are so easy to make and will be fun to as gifts!
The Biscoff Spread Story:
Biscoff Cookies (known in Europe as Lotus Speculoos cookies) first made their way to America as in-flight treats. Starting in the 1980s, Biscoff treats have been paired with mid-air morning coffee in flights throughout the United States.
In 2007, as part of a television show called “De Bedenkers” (“The Inventors”), Els Scheppers, a culinary enthusiast, created a recipe that converted Lotus Speculoos cookies into a creamy spread. Her recipe was chosen as a finalist on the show and soon after the show was over, Lotus Bakeries contacted Els and worked together to perfect her inspired creation. Just three hours after its initial release in Belgium, the product sold out and a culinary phenomenon was born.
