I fell in love with Biscoff Cookies many years ago when I was on an airplane, just like I'm sure many of you did. I'd never had one of the crispy speculoos cookies so I wasn't expecting much when I opened the little 2-cookie package that the flight attendant gave me. Wow, was I surprised when bit into the rectangle cookie. It was seriously, love at first bite.
The texture of the cookie was crunchy and felt dry but it sort of melted in my mouth and the flavor of caramel, cinnamon, and gingerbread lingered on my tongue. I fell into a bit of a food trance and before I knew it my cookies were gone.
I studied the packaging looking for the name of the manufacturer so that I could look them up as soon as I had a chance. I knew I couldn't wait until I flew again to have another one of these treats.
Happily, a few years later the Biscoff Cookies started making appearances in my local grocery stores. Then not too long after that the Biscoff Cookie Butter hit the shelves.
A while back I showed you have to make Biscoff Butterscotch Basketballs. The recipe was wonderful but I realized that unless you are looking for basketball-themed treats you might not have even noticed this dessert recipe on my site.
The recipe that I used to make the basketballs was simply Biscoff Cookie Butter mixed with Butterscotch Chips. When I decided to make these Biscoff Truffles, I chose to use white chocolate chips instead and love these even more than the original recipe.
What are Biscoff Cookies?
- They are delicately crunchy cookies flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves.
- This type of cookie is known as a speculoos cookie or speculaas and originated in the Netherlands. These spiced shortbread cookies were traditionally served on St. Nicholas' day but have become an everyday treat.
- Many people enjoy the cookies dunked in coffee or tea but they are a perfect snack right out of the package.
- Lotus Biscoff Cookies are a brand of store-bought cookies. You may use any speculoos cookies you like to make these cookie butter truffles.
What is Biscoff Cookie Butter?
- Cookie butter is a creamy (or crunchy) food paste made by combining speculoos cookie crumbs with condensed milk, butter, or vegetable oil and sugar. Sometimes flour is added too.
- It is spreadable like peanut butter and can be used in place of peanut butter on toast or in recipes like Biscoff Fudge.
- Biscoff Cookie Spread has NO preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or GMO ingredients.
- It is even vegan friendly.
- There are other brands of speculoos cookie spread and you can use any brand you like.
Making the cookie butter truffles
6 ounces white chocolate chips (about 1 cup )
10 ounces creamy Biscoff Cookie Butter*
6 Biscoff Cookies
*If you don't have a scale you can measure the Cookie Spread in a dry measuring cup (1-cup) and overfill it just slightly.
- Pour your white chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl.
- Heat on high power, for 30 seconds, then remove and stir.
- Heat for two more 30-second bursts on high power, stirring after each.
- Let the white chocolate sit for 2 minutes then stir again.
- If not completely melted, heat for 10-20 more seconds.
- Alternatively, you can melt the white chocolate in a double boiler (set over 1 inch of water) on the stove over low heat, stirring often, until melted.
- Stir in the Biscoff Cookie Spread.
- Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the mixture and set aside for several hours until firm.
- Optionally, you can place the mixture in the refrigerator for about an hour then let sit on your counter until soft enough to scoop.
- I much prefer to allow the truffle mixture to cool at room temperature. The texture will be nice and creamy.
- Meanwhile, crush 6 Biscoff Cookies into fine crumbs using a rolling pin or a food processor.
- Scoop out twenty-six 2-teaspoon size scoops and set on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- I used the OXO Good Grips small scoop and it works beautifully to make evenly sized truffles.
- If you use a scoop, fill it with the truffle mixture then scrape the edge to ensure all your truffles are the same size .
- Roll one scoop into a ball then immediately roll it into the Cookie Crumbs.
- You want the truffles to be a bit sticky so that the cookie crumbs stick to them.
- If you roll all of the truffles first then begin rolling them in the cookies the crumbs will not stick.
- Repeat, rolling and coating all the truffles in cookie crumbs.
- Be careful to melt your white chocolate on short bursts of power otherwise you might burn the candy.
- You can use any white chocolate you like, including white chocolate chips, bars, or even Candy Melts.
- Use a small OXO scoop to create perfectly sized Biscoff Truffles.
How to store truffles?
- These truffles will stay fresh for about a month if kept in an airtight container set at room temperature.
- You can freeze the truffles if you wrap them really well in plastic wrap and place them in a zip-top bag.
- To thaw, the truffles remove them from the freezer and let them sit in their packaging on the counter overnight. Then remove from the packaging and serve.

In one of your posts, you referenced using invert sugar and glucose when making professional truffles. I purchasedsome of each of those products but now can't find a recipe that calls for them (one, yes, but not both). Can you steer me in the right direction? I'd like to try making a few truffles to sell during the holidays.
You can find a recipe for chocolate ganache using both invert sugar and glucose on the Callebaut website here - https://www.callebaut.com/en-US/chocolate-recipe/1517/trilogy
I don't have any recipes here on my website as these ingredients are not readily available or necessary for a home cook.
I hope you have fun making your truffles for the holiday season.
Can you use milk chocolate instead of white? Thank you
You can swap out milk chocolate for white chocolate in a truffle recipe but the ratios of chocolate to, in this case, Biscoff Spread, will be slightly different. Milk chocolate is not quite as soft as white chocolate so you'll need to use a bit less of it in order for your truffles to have the same texture. I have not made this recipe using milk chocolate but based on the ratios of dark/milk/white chocolate that I use to make traditional chocolate truffles using heavy whipping cream, you will need to use 5 ounces of milk chocolate instead of 6 ounces of white chocolate in this recipe. That doesn't seem like it would make much difference but it could make your Biscoff Truffles a bit too firm.
One other thing to note is that the milk chocolate will mute (or soften) the flavor of the Biscoff Spread. Taste the mixture while it's warm and add a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, or cloves if you want to bring more of those flavors out.

How do you store these please?
Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks. You can freeze them then allow them to thaw overnight in the refrigerator then allow them to sit at room temperature for a few hours before opening the package. This will help to keep them from getting sticky with condensation.
How do you get the balls so perfectly round without the chocolate/biscoff mixture melting and sticking to your hands? Also, how do you get the crumbs to completely stick to the balls? Love the recipe, I just tried making a ton as gifts and part of an office holiday treat.
Hi LT, if you use an ice cream scoop this really helps to shape the truffles into balls then you need to roll them in your hands. I find rolling them around in my finger area versus in the palm of my hand helps to make them more round but this won't be true for everyone. It will depend on the shape of your hand.
Being these truffles are made using white chocolate they will definitely begin to melt in your hands a bit and if you notice in the video they do stick a little to my gloves. I love to wear food handling gloves when making truffles so that I don't have to continually wash my hands. Once the truffles do get a bit soft and sticky the cookie crumbs should stick well so you actually need to have them melt a bit.
I hope this helps. I'm so glad you enjoyed the flavor of these Biscoff Truffles.
