Irresistibly Adorable Biscoff Kisses


Thanks to the sponsorship of Biscoff, I'm able to bring you irresistibly tasty & irresistibly adorable Biscoff Kisses!

I was first introduced to Biscoff Spread almost exactly two years ago during a demonstration cooking class I took, and let me just tell ya ... it was love at first sight!  Or, maybe I should say, love at first taste.  Well however I say it, the bottom line is I love this stuff.

We're talking an eat-it-in-huge-globs-straight-from-the-jar kind of love.  Or, slather-it-on-a-marshmallow-with-a-little-piece-of-chocolate kind of love ... you know, like a little mini s'more.

That's a lot of love.

Now, back when I first found out about Biscoff Spread, there was only one specialty foods store in my area in which it was available.  But now ... lucky for us ... it's available in the peanut butter aisle of most grocery stores nationwide.  I remember how excited I was the first time I found it on the shelf of my local 'everyday shopping' grocery store!  It was a happy day.  And I *may* have just done a teeny-tiny happy dance right there in the grocery store aisle.  Let's just hope there were no cameras.  {If you're not sure where to buy Biscoff Spread in your area, the very nice folks at Biscoff have a handy-dandy 'Where to Buy Biscoff Products' helper for us.  They're sweet like that.}


So, what exactly is Biscoff Spread?  Well it's a scrumptiously-delicious spreadable treat made in Belgium from Biscoff Cookies ... that get all crushed up and mixed with brown sugar and other yummy all-natural ingredients.  Think the consistency of peanut butter.  But the taste of a cookie.  A super yummy cookie.

When Biscoff asked me to get creative with Biscoff Spread and create a recipe with it, I jumped at the chance.  I mean, you already know how much I adore the stuff.  So off developing these cute little Biscoff Kisses I went!


Aren't they adorable?

Just pop them in your mouth for an irresistible little Biscoff sweet treat.

And here's how you can make your very own.

Simply start by melting some white chocolate chips and Biscoff Spread together in a saucepan.  Then add some confectioners sugar and a tiny bit of salt and stir it together until it's smooth.  The mixture will be really liquidy and run off a spoon in a pretty steady stream, like this:


Set the mixture aside to cool until it firms up and no longer runs off the spoon.  This will take a while, but it will firm up!  See?


Place the Biscoff mixture in a piping bag and pipe out cute little kisses!  Oh, I just love the curly little tops on them.  Don't you?


Okay, now truth be told, it did take me a few tries to get the piping of these little kisses 'right.'  Starting with three different sizes of star tips, I decided I didn't like the look of the result ... so I moved on to working with a large round tip (Wilton 12, to be exact) ...


Much better!


I found piping to be about the size of a penny worked well.  And then I found that kind of lifting the tip up as I piped, and releasing some pressure each time I lifted, created a kind of bubbly layered look I liked ...


But sometimes ... oh, sometimes the top didn't want to cooperate.  No worries!  A little bit of coaxing with a toothpick did the trick!


Once done piping out all these little cuties, pop them in the refrigerator for a bit to set.  And then pop them in your mouth to enjoy the yummy Biscoff Kiss goodness!


Mmmmmm.  Irresistibly tasty.  And irresistibly adorable.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 c. creamy Biscoff Spread
  • 1 c. white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
  • 1/16 tsp. salt
Directions
  1. Combine Biscoff Spread and white chocolate chips in a small saucepan. Melt together over medium-low heat until the white chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add confectioners' sugar and salt; stir until smooth. Set aside to cool until mixture firms up and no longer runs off a spoon, about 1 hour.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Spoon Biscoff mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip (I used Wilton #12). Pipe approximately penny-sized dollops onto the prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to set.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Makes about 60 kisses.
Enjoy!
