Biscoff Rice Krispie Treats

New Adventures in the World of Biscoff

'What the devil is Biscoff?', you ask.  For that answer, we can go straight to the Biscoff site.

Biscoff is the name given to Lotus Bakeries Speculoos Cookies in North America. It is derived from the words BIScuits & COFFee.

For this first adventure into baking with Biscoff Spread...hold on....

Biscoff Spread is a new spreadable, sweet treat made from Biscoff Cookies. Biscoff Spread tastes just like Biscoff Cookies because more than half of the jar is made up of crushed Biscoff Cookies. Biscoff Spread has the consistency of peanut butter and can be enjoyed on toast, with apples, as a secret ingredient in recipes or straight out of the jar!

That's all for today's little lesson.  If you have never tried the speculoos cookies and you like a spice cookie, you need to find these.  Seriously!!  And if you know what they are and love them, then you need to find the Biscoff Spread.  Seriously!!

I was lucky enough to find the Biscoff Spread at my favourite kitchen place (Grace in the Kitchen).  And I wasn't even looking for it! (She typed in a high pitched voice font.)   We (hubbie and I) were just looking around the store....I had to go in to buy a fine mesh sieve (for my ice cream making) and I always like to look around, as there is always something interesting in that store.  But I totally wasn't expecting to see Biscoff Spread!!!  They have probably always sold it, but I had never seen it.  (There is a lot to see in that store.)  And some (my hubbie) may say that I was way to excited when I found this jar of Biscoff Spread....and to that I say Biscoff!! 

Anyhoo.  I have been looking on the interwebs for something to make with the Biscoff Spread.  I have had the jar for a total of three day and I just need to use it!!!!  I wanted to try something easy and quick.....'cause sometimes easy and quick is good....umm in baking....


Interesting recipe.  I feel like I should have used more marshmallows to make the squares, as I like them more chewy.  But I do like the flavour of the biscoff.  Can't wait to try another recipe with this spread and continue on this biscoff baking adventure!

Slightly Adapted from Shugary Sweets.

  1. I used the Trader Joe's version in the Two Peas and a Pod granola bar recipe and wasn't so impressed (with the recipe)... Was thinking about subbing it in the Baked peanut butter cookies to see what happens... Could be amazing! I eat the stuff out of the jar, not gonna lie. :)
