Biscoff Fudge, baby!

IMG_9315

I have shared my love for Biscoff cookies with you before. Remember these cheesecake bars I made with a certain cookie crust? Delta gives these cookies out on their flights and when the flight attendants make their way down the aisle, I get excited like a little kid waiting for a snack. It’s gotten to where one little two-pack isn’t enough when I’m traveling so sometimes I even buy my own package to bring along. It’s a problem.

Recently I tried them dipped in coffee for the first time.

Oh. My. Cookies.

I don’t really drink coffee unless it’s with dessert, but I may have to start a new habit just so I have something to dip these cookies in.

If you haven’t tried it before. Don’t. And save yourself a little addiction.

Speaking of new addictions, Biscoff also makes a spread that tastes like their cookies.

I’ve tried to avoid it for my waistline’s sake, but it finally got me.

And, it’s so good. I think I’m in trouble. Big Biscoffy trouble.

I decided to try making some fudge with it the other day so I wouldn’t end up eating the entire jar in one sitting,

I usually make Peanut Butter Fudge during the holidays, but I thought it would be fun to try this kind. too.

Off to a good start.

IMG_9254

Getting better.

IMG_9264

Full rolling boil. Beautiful.

IMG_9260

And the star of the show.

Biscoff spread.

You can see why I thought it would be a great replacement for peanut butter.

IMG_9281

Creamy. Dreamy.

IMG_9284

And on it’s way to delicious.

IMG_9289

Throw in some marshmallow creme.

IMG_9290

Mix it all together…

IMG_9294

And throw it in the pan.

IMG_9296

Spread it right away because it doesn’t take long to set.

IMG_9298

And, if you want a little crunch, throw in some crumbled Biscoff cookies for good measure.

IMG_9303

Or just do half if you’re indecisive like me.

Press the cookie pieces in pretty good or they will fall off.

Yum! Yum!

Biscoff Fudge. Make some.

1 1/2 cups sugar
6 Tablespoons margarine
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup Biscoff spread
3.5 oz. or half a jar of Marshmallow Creme

  1. Combine sugar, margarine and evaporated milk in a medium pot.
  2. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling for 4 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in Biscoff spread until melted.
  5. Add marshmallow creme and vanilla. Use a mixer to beat in the pot until well blended.
  6. Pour into greased 8 X 8 pan.
  7. Let cool and cut into small squares.

If the fudge gives you any trouble, it’s usually one of a couple of things for me. Getting the sugar mixture too hot and the fudge turns out kinda crumbly or not hot enough and it doesn’t quite set as firm. I’ve had both happen on occasion. You also want to make sure you have the right amount of marshmallow creme. I usually eyeball it. These are borderline crumbly, but still so good. I suspect I got it too hot, but I also wonder if it has something to do with the Biscoff itself. Guess I’ll have to make it again one day soon to see.

I do have to admit, the Peanut Butter Fudge is still probably my favorite, but these are good for a change.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have an opened jar of Biscoff and a spoon waiting for me in the kitchen.

Who’s with me?

  3. Oh my gosh, that sounds amazing! I’m totally hooked on the Biscoff Spread, don’t know why it didn’t occur to me put it in fudge! Will definitely be giving this a try!

  4. I “found” the Biscoff cookies on a flight to Hawaii this summer..instantly hooked! I LOVE that you made fudge with this!! Thanks for all the great ideas Bakerella! Happy New Year :o)

  5. Clearly I need to fly Delta more often! :) Thanks for the recipe; looks amazing!

  6. I used to be a flight attendant for a Dekta connection carrier. I would carry whole packs of these cookies in my flight bag!! I’ve seen the spread, but I’m afraid to even go there!!

  7. Bakerella, you MUST try Biscoff cookies with Nutella! I made up this concoction one day when I was craving something sweet and it’s my new guilty pleasure. DELISH! Totally gonna try your Biscoff fudge recipe – yum!

  8. Trader Joe’s is now selling “Speculoos Cookie Butter” “A deliciously unusual spread reminiscent of gingerbread and made with crushed biscuits.” The product is made in The Netherlands.

  9. Looks delicious. Will have to find these cookies and spread! Of course will have to make the fudge too!

  10. Oh my, that fudge looks divine!! I have been buying biscoff in the cookie aisle at Walmart for quite some time. They are my snack before bed, lol. And now I am going to have to look for the spread…..

  11. this looks sooooooo delish never heard of these cookies or spread where can u buy them at in anaheim,ca???

  12. Say what?!?! I have GOT to try this. I’ve recently become addicted and I’ve also gotten my husband hooked. This has to be awesome!

  13. What do you use for lighting your pictures?? I need something!!!

  14. Jen – I’ve found both at the grocery store, but you can also order online.

    http://www.biscoff.com/DirectionsWEB/webcart_category.php?catid=BALL&pcatid=BISCOFF

    Annie – I shot these at night. I have two Lowel Ego tabletop lights that I use when natural light isn’t around.

  15. So I told myself after my great Christmas baking extravaganza that I would abstain from the kitchen for awhile….this recipe is not going to let that happen…..

  16. Holy crap! Biscoff comes in a freaking jar????

  17. That looks delicious! Have you ever tried it with nutella? It would probably be sooooo good!

  18. You can buy these cookies at Walgreens, google tells me…gotta go try them!

  19. I am guilty of having ordered the cookies by the case from the online store. They really are delicious! I have never heard of the spread and I can’t wait to buy some and try the fudge! What a brilliant idea!

    Thanks for all of the inspiration! You are amazing!

  20. I made white chocolate fudge with pieces of Biscoff cookies. It was a total hit with everyone & they all constantly ask me to make more.

  21. Here In the Netherlands we have a lot of ‘speculaas’ but I don’t know where I can find marshmallow Cream. Do you know something I can use instead? I really like making these kind of cookies!!!

  22. I’ve never heard of these cookies, let alone the spread….I’m curious now….haha. I’ll have to look them up and try them for sure! And then the fudge. Looks Delicious!

  23. Dear Bakerella,
    That really looks delicious! Here in Belgium and The Netherlands we know these cookies as “speculaas” (that’s actually their real name, Biscoff is the American name) and the spread is known as “speculaaspasta”. It comes in two varieties: the normal one and a crunchy one, with little bits of cookies in it. It is truly very addictive and once you start eating them, it’s impossible to stop! What harm can one more cookie do? ;-)
    For your information: the spread was invented by a woman and shown for the very first time on a television show “the inventors”. It immediately became a hit and since Lotus decided to help her, you can find it in every store in Belgium and the Netherlands!
    Also, speculaas is our Sinterklaas cookie, so around the fifth of december you’ll find them even more:)
    Enjoy your speculaas Fudge!

  24. Hey Bakerella, I’m honoured by your love for these cookies coming from my country of origine (Belgium)! The fudge looks gorgeous! mmm…

  25. hello, ? am from cyrus and unfortunately it is not possible to find marshmallow cream in here. Do you know something I can use instead? I am really drooling for these fudge!!

  26. To everyone in the Netherlands wondering about Marshmellow fluff, you can buy it at the Jumbo and AH XL. It should be in the same section as the speculoos paste :)

  27. OMG it looks sooo good!

  28. Biscoff? I really thought there were no cookies I have not tried. Must buy these! The fudge looks amazing.

  29. I am ! In France and in Europe we call those “speculoos” ! I was surprised to see that you could buy some in the US !
    Happy new year, may you have a very good 2012 year with success, love and happiness !
    Delphine

  30. WalMart sell the speculos and they are on sale for $1.50 a pkg! Heading there today and making this treat for New Years brunch, thanks Bakerella!

  31. And that unopened jar of Cookie Butter just found a home, love this! Happy New Year:-)

  32. This stuff is so going on my list for our next trip to the states, it sound so good.

  33. I first tried these cookies years ago during my 6 month stay in France. HIGHLY addictive. Recently stumbled across them in my local Stop & Shop of all places (YUM!)! Now to find it comes in a spread? Oh my goodness. Thanks for all the wonderful baking ideas. This looks divine. Wishing you a Happy New Year!

  34. Yum! I have biscoff spread in my pantry, and I just got some biscoff cookies in my stocking for Christmas! :)

  35. these cookies are extremely well-known in my country, but we call them speculaas. if you ever get your hands on the speculaas-flavoured icecream, don’t hesitate!

    on the fifth of december, a man called sinterklaas (who later became your santa claus) visits the homes of belgian children and leaves oranges, marzipan, chocolate and speculaas. my favourite sandwich at that time of the year? whole grain bread, marzipan, speculaas and blueberry jam (with whole blueberries in it). it’s like a winter party in your mouth!

  36. Well, dang! Just when I thought I had my Biscoff addiction under control you go and do this to me. I thought we were friends?

  37. Oh Angie! I NEED this!!

  38. Gorgeous!! Love this idea.

  39. Oh…have you tried the “Crunchy” Biscoff spread? It’s delish, too. Both it and the creamy are big sellers in our coffee shop.

  40. Oh, Bakerella, I love you! We lived in Italy for 5 years (thank you U.S. Air Force) and one of my favorite things was Speculoos. (Biscoff spread) It wasn’t readily available, but every month or two a man from Belgium would come down to our base to sell things and this was one of them. I would buy jars and jars. I even bought a bunch to bring when we moved back to the states last year. It, of course, is LONG gone, so I’m SO happy to hear it’s available here…I just hope I can find it!
    And fudge? You made fudge with it??? I HAVE to try it!

  41. P.S. It cost me about 9Euro a jar (about $12!!) and I bought it anyway!!

  42. ooh, this looks fantastic! My grandfather absolutely loves biscoff, I think I should make a batch for him!

  43. This looks awesome! I recently tried the spread for the first time and was amazed. I made a cookie recipe I saw on a blog I follow and they were delicious! Hooray for Biscoff!

  44. Discovered Biscoff spread this summer. Have found different brands, the original Biscoff (the best), Trader Joe’s and Belgium Treasures. We have been using the spread on everything–waffles, english muffins, panninis (with banana, oh my) and of course, by the spoon. SOOO GOOD!!! Definitely going to make the fudge tonight for a girls’ sleepover!

  45. Oh. My. Word. This fudge looks *incredible*…. I don’t know if I can get the Biscoff spread where I am, I’ve never seen it before! But I may have to go on a hunt to my local World Market and see if I can’t dig some up to make this.
    I love your pics as you’re cooking! It makes cooking/baking look like the lovely art that it is. Yum.

  46. Oh I bet these are so delicious! I’ve never had Biscoff!

  47. These look awesome. I have nutella fudge in the fridge at home, but as soon as it is gone…

  48. I had never heard of biscofff before moving my brother home from college, last semester. He had some that he was going to throw away. I tried it, and the rest is history. I actually used it in a baking recipe as well (:

  49. i’m totally with you! i love biscoff too! can’t wait to try this!

  50. I LOVE Biscoff. So addicting. I am in trouble now that I know about their spread. Gee thanks…. :) Looks soo good. Happy New Year!

    ~Bettie

  51. Why did you do this? I had decided that there are somethings that I don’t need to know … like how good Biscoff is. Now I have to try it … so many temptations.

  52. absoloutly amazing!!!!!!! My mom once made blackberry blondies..

  53. I have heard and seen all the hype about these cookies and the new spread but I have yet to try it yet! I think that I have to find some soon!

  54. OMG!!! I love Biscoff. My mom loves it even more. I never knew there was a Biscoff spread though.
    I may have to try to make this for her. My mom reads your blog too though, so it may not be a surprise.

    Geez, annet there is ice cream?? Wow that is amazing. Might have to see if I can find it.

    Thanks Bakerella & Have A Happy New Year!!!

  55. I love biscoff! Your fudge looks absolutely perfect!

  56. Haha – those little cookies are good :)
    When I saw that you could order them online I remembered your posting from a while back! This sounds great, too. Thanks!

  57. I recently discovered this spread myself. My daughter has severe allergies, and I was excited to try it. I meant to try buckeyes with it this Christmas, but I got busy. Now I have two recipes to try. I love have peanut butter alternatives!! Thank you for sharing!

  58. Yummy fudgy goodness :D

  59. I use Biscoff spread (speculoos paste here in Belgium) as a substitute for peanut butter in your dark chocolate chip comfort cookies and they are just fabulous. I really want to try this recipe as well, but I’m not sure I can find the marshmellow creme over here.

  60. Trader joes sells it as ‘Speculoos Cookie Butter’… fantastic.

    safeway and albertsons sell the cookies…

  61. They make crunchy Biscoff spread as well but you can only get it on the website. The creamy spread they started to sell in stores.

    My husband is from Belgium, so we had the speculoos spread there and we all loved it SO much, I was thrilled to find out Lotus sold it in the states as well. Trader Joe’s is also selling cookie butter but I don’t think it is as good as the Biscoff. We tried the TJ’s spread but it was way too sweet for us.

    The other nice thing you can get if you order Biscoff from the website are waffles- both plain and chocolate dipped- YUM!

  62. This looks INCREDIBLE! I can’t wait to make this next weekend ;)

  63. Biscoff spread has been my secret guilty pleasure for ages! My favorite way to indulge is just with a scoop of ice cream. Or by the spoonful. Whichever.

  64. Oh my cookies. Those look amazing!!! YUMMIES!!!!

  65. My hairdresser got me hooked on the spread earlier this year! So so good!

  66. The qusetion I have isn’t really on this topics but I’ll ask it anyways. I was making cake pops and you say you make 48 pops. I only made 29. How do you make 48 but still make them 1 1/4 inch?

  67. No. Freaking.Way. Biscoff spread is amazing this looks incredible!! CANNOT wait to try! :)

  68. OMG I LOVE Biscoff cookies! I recently found a local store that sells packages of them. I thought I was in heaven then, but now I’m on the lookout for the spread. Yum!

  69. Do I need to go to Belgium to get the Speculoos? I found another brand at a New Orleans Big Lots, but it was limited to a few jars. Unable to find the original or the other brand in the U.S. since. It would be a money maker if sold here. There would have to be some good marketing due to the name, but it would sell.

  70. My family loves the Biscoff cookies! This fudge sounds really good…. my nieces would definitely get into this! :)

  71. Have you ever had stroopwafels? I was eating some biscoff cookies on a plane just last week and I thought to myself how much they taste like stroopwafels. My husband actually agreed with me so I must not be nuts!

  72. Once the new year diet is over I MUST make these!

  73. I love Biscoff cookies — and I can’t believe you had never had them with coffee before! One of my favorite things! I have trouble finding Biscoff cookies, so i snap them up whenever I do. I’ve definitely never seen the spread before….

  74. To all Biscoff/speculoos (spreand inculded) lovers :

    Cut a puff pastry pie crust in quarters. Spread the Biscoff/speculoos paste over it leavind an inch clear on the boarder. Wrap half a skinned pear completely with the puff pastry. Lay on a cooking sheet, with the pastry seams underneath. Brush with table cream (yes, cream) and sprinkle with sugar.
    Bake for 20 minutes and enjoy!

  75. WOW!!! I’ve been on a fudge making binge lately, including experimenting with different cookies as mix ins. I had Biscoffs on my list. I’ve never seen the spread, though. I will have to look for it. I also was thinking about using a hand mixer to mix the fudge, so thank you for sharing that. On my next trip to the store, I’ll be leaving with Biscoff cookies…and the spread if they have it. Thanks, and happy new year!

  76. @Lisette, I am and American living in the Netherlands and just thought I would let you know that you can now get Marshmallow Fluff at Albert Heijn and I have also seen it a Jumbo. In both places it is sold near the peanut butter and the Speculoos Spread by Lotus (what it is called in in Holland).
    Hope that helps!!
    Can’t wait to try this recipe! My husband and I are obsessed with Speculoos and the Crunchy Speculoos and will be moving back to the States in the near future and I thought I was going to have to ship back many jars of this. So I am thrilled it is now available in the US. :)

  77. Oh my, I fell in love with Biscoff on a Delta flight as well! I hadn’t ever looked or them in a store but this post got me moving! I found both the cookies and the spread at World Market (Cost Plus).

  78. Me being from Canada, I have never heard of Biscoff. Skippy, anyone? Anyways, these look delish! (I was also super excited when I got a BabyCakes cake pop maker for Christmas… :D)

  79. @ Beth : do you have any recipes including crunchy speculoos spread? I tried some but it never keeps the crunchiness…

  80. I ! I am with you with this Biscoff addiction … On this part of the world (I’m writing you from France and my english is not brilliant, sorry) it calls SPECULOOS … and I looove this belgian cookies since I was … since I was too young to remember. I use speculoos to make the crust when I bake a key lime pie (with lime not from the keys) ou my “new york art” cheesecake. I’m reading you this morning for the first time (from Sweetapolita’s blog), I can’t believe you have kept your so beautiful smile during this difficult moments (and I cannot tell you exactly what I feel with my few words in english) … I wish you a very happy new year, with love, with chance, with success, with happiness and with health.
    Kiss,
    virginie

  81. @Beth thanks a lot for your answer, I’ll have a look at AH this week…..I didn’t know we already have that marsmellow stuff thing here in Holland :D thanks!

  82. Few weeks ago, I discovered your site. I look forward to testing some of your recipes when I would have found products because i’m living in France.

    Léa

  83. I’m so excited that I’m not the only person to get excited when they come around with the beverage cart and COOKIES! And now a spread too, oh me oh my! So glad 2011 turned out happy for you Bakerella!

  84. i’ve never heard of these before reading this entry, so I got curious and had to find them. found the cookies this morning and they’re just as good and addicting as you said. thanks. I think. LOL

  85. i have TWO opened jars of Biscoff spread in my panty…TWO! I think I need to make this fudge.

    PS…I used to work for Delta. Can I tell you how many packs of those cookies *accidentally* got left in my apron pockets? Um, a few.

  86. If I didn’t have to cross the boarder from Canada to the US just to get Cookie Butter ( trader joes version of Biscoff spread) I would be in giant trouble. This is honestly making my mouth water and it’s only 9:30 am.

  87. we have speculoos here in France as well as speculoo spreads. We have speculoo syrup and speculoo ice cream! Now if I could just get a jar of fluff I could make this wonderful fudge.

  88. i went to their website and placed a 2 pk order which just came via the UPS man….OMG! i’m glad i have to order and it’s not in my grocery store…NOW i must make me some fudge! of course I opened the crunch 1st….that’s yum!

  89. Just made this today, too decadent!!! Bakerella have you ever made fudge using Nutella?

  90. Love Biscoff!! and yes it started with the cookies on a delta flight! The spread rivals Nutella! Put some of the spread on the cookies- to die for!! Of course there is none in my cupboard- it is too addicting!! I only buy it occasionally, otherwise I woulds eat it everyday!

  91. I used the spred on a dessert pizza. Instead of Nutella, because I dont care for it, and it turned out great! I just baked a sugar cookie crust, spread on Biscoff and topped with cruched oreo’s, reese cups, chocolate chips, you name it…it was delicious!

  92. Actyally I’m from Belgium and those little cookies are from here! We call them Speculoos and it’s very yummy :p I love them with dark chocolate (belgium of course) and never tried on fudge before! It looks very tastful thank you for all your ideas bakerella is the best paestry site on the world!!! ;)

  93. OMG! I just jumped for joy! Not only do I LOVE your blog and Biscoff cookies (I gave them away as gifts for Christmas) BUT Biscoff spread is a NUT FREE alternative to peanut butter! My child has life threatening allergies to nuts and has never had fudge or anything like a pb & j! This will change his life! LOL. I would not have ever known about the spread if it were not for your blog! Thanks for everything you do!

  94. Hi bakkarella…
    I’m from Belgium. And the biscoff ( SPECULOOS the right name ) is a belgian speciality. The childrens received it on 6th december for “Saint nicolas”, a old man who become for the nice childrens to give some sweets and toys with him helper and donkey.The choldren let a mug of milk for the old man and a carrot for the donkey. I can give you some recept. It’s a wonderfuul product. If you want you can go to see it on my web site I use it this week end…
    Take care of you miss

  95. That’s so funny! We have the same stuff in Holland, but here we call it Speculoos. It’s the Belgian version of the Dutch speculaas cookie. Never thought of making fudge with those, it’s really creative!

  96. If you want another variation with biscoff cookies,
    Try tiramisu with biscoff cookies instead off the others.
    And if you want to make it kid friendly use chocolate milk instead off coffee!

  97. Hey Bakerella,
    Come to SF in California! We have a whole Biscoff store at Fisherman’s Wharf!
