Triple Chocolate Biscoff Blondies

Have you heard of this stuff? Biscoff? I've seen all these recipes recently that use this as an ingredient and I hadn't even heard of it! Maybe it's hitting the coasts first and is taking a while to get to the Midwest . . . Who knows?

Anyway, the point is that it's delicious. I found some at our local HyVee the other day, but so far haven't seen it anywhere else. I'm assuming it'll be like Nutella - it's hard to find at first, but once it catches on you can find it pretty much everywhere. Biscoff spread has the consistency of peanut butter, but it's made out of cookies - it almost tastes like graham cracker butter instead of peanut butter. It's clearly really hard to describe, as you can probably tell by my bumbling through this post.

I saw a recipe for Biscoff stuffed cookies, but didn't want to spend the time scooping, stuffing, and baking all the cookies. So, I made some minor adjustments to the recipe and turned them into bars . . . Mmm, mmm, good. They were still slightly gooey in the middle from the Biscoff, and they stay nice and soft. Just how I like 'em!

Triple Chocolate Biscoff Blondies (original recipe can be found here)
1 c. softened butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
3 c. flour
1 c. white chocolate chips
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. milk chocolate chips
2/3-3/4 c. Biscoff spread
1. Preheat oven to 350, and grease a 9x13 inch pan.
2. Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
3. Add eggs, vanilla, salt, and soda and beat for another 2-3 minutes.
4. Slowly stir in flour and chocolate chips.
5. Spread 1/3 to 1/2 the batter in the prepared pan. Gently spread Biscoff over the top of it, followed by the remaining batter. It might not be completely smooth, but that's okay. Just cover it as best as possible.
6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, and allow to cool.

 You can see the Biscoff oozing down the side . . . so delicious!






Certainly feel free to substitute peanut butter or Nutella if you can't find the Biscoff. I'm sure either would taste ridiculously good!

Hugs and cookies,
