Giant Chocolate Biscoff Cookie Butter Cups. Vegan.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a delicious chocolate treat that would be perfect for sharing in the upcoming festive season.

Say hello to the Giant Chocolate Biscoff Cookie Butter Cup…

Chocolate Biskoff Butter Cup

This mix of melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate and biscoff cookies in butter form is a match made in heaven. Whether you’re vegan yourself, or looking for a chocolatey gift for a vegan/dairy-free loved one, these cups are bound to impress. And the fact that you made them yourself is sure to win you extra brownie points.

I have always loved those little Lotus Speculoos biscuits that that you get with a cup of coffee on continental Europe (known to our US friends as ‘Biscoff Cookies’). That crisp snap as you bite into it and that unique flavour are two reasons why I’m so fond of it. The fact that it happens to be vegan makes me love it even more.

So you can imagine how excited I was when I spotted Lotus Biscuit Spread (aka Biscoff Cookie Butter) in Waitrose (next to the peanut butter jars). My favourite coffee biscuit… in butter form AND it’s suitable for vegans!!!

Okay, so I know it’s not a health product, but I’m not adverse to the occasional sugary treat especially in the festive season.  And I was intrigued to see how it tastes. As soon as I got home, I stuck my spoon in to test it and, oh my word, it tastes JUST like the biscuit!!! A smooth, creamy version of the biscuit 😍

And I knew the perfect recipe to use it in…

Chocolate Biskoff Butter Cups

… a nut-free alternative to my giant peanut butter cups!

They are so easy to make! It’s simply a case of melting dark chocolate, pouring it into a silicone cupcake mould (or paper cases) and filling it with the biscoff cookie butter. The hardest bit is waiting for them to set before you can tuck in.

I’ve made two batches so far this week and they’ve been a big hit with everyone that’s tried them. These treats will definitely have wide appeal. They’d also make a great home-made Christmas gift, packaged in a chocolate box or in a festive cellophane bag. If you really want to go for the ‘wow’ factor, you could use a shaped mould, like the heart-shaped one I use for my peanut butter cups.

    Yum! They probably need a health warning cos they’re so good. Eat responsibly as part of a balanced diet…

  2. I love Biscoff spread…my kids love to put it as a spread on pancakes and waffles…or on a spoon and straight to their mouths…can’t say I blame them.

    What a fantastic idea to put in a chocolate cup….I don’t know if I have the patience for them to set up, but perhaps I will try (I just have to hide the spread first).

  3. Ooooh these look sooo yummy! I first tried speculoos when a blogger friend from Belgium sent me some. They were soo good! A year or so later, I think it was my mom who spotted speculoos butter on a trip to the US at Trader Joe’s. She brought it home and I devoured it….I can only imagine how amazing it would be surrounded in chocolate! I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for a similar ‘butter’!

  4. Oh. My. Glob.

    Marry me, Sharon!

    I discovered Biscoff when I was in Britain in April, and was instantly hooked. I’m going over again in 10 days – I need to re-stock!

    These look amazing but I’m not convinced there’d be enough to give away to other people though. Oink oink!

    I have a feeling they may well become a regular at Casa Nico… at least until January, when I realise how tight my jeans have become! Thank you heaps for sharing this. Omnomnom!

  5. That stuff is positively dangerous. I can’t stop tucking into it with a spoon. Fab idea to use it in a filing for chocolate cups. I’ve made cashew nut butter cups with great success, but I can see how well this would work.

  6. Ooooh great idea to use the Biscoff spread in these. I have some in the cupboard and never know what to do with it!

  7. These look so droolworthy and you are right they would make delicious gifts.

  8. What a fantastic – and delicious! – idea!
