Ingredients

For the Biscoff Cupcakes:

  • 15.5 oz yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (or canola oil)
  • 1/2 cup creamy cookie butter

For the Filling:

  • 1/4 cup cookie butter

For the Biscoff Buttercream:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup creamy cookie butter
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 TBS vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4-5 TBS heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Biscoff cookies (optional)

Instructions

For the Biscoff Cupcakes:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two muffin tins with paper cupcake liners. Spray the liners lightly with cooking spray, and set aside.
  • Add the cupcake ingredients to a large bowl and whisk them together, or mix them with a stand mixer, or hand mixer, until combined.
  • Fill each cupcake liner evenly, just slightly above half full each.
  • Bake the cupcakes for about 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick can be inserted in the center and comes out clean.
  • Let the cupcakes cool for 10 minutes in the muffin pan, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

For the Filling:

  • Core the center of each cupcake using a small spoon, or a cupcake corer. Leave some of the cupcake still at the bottom.
  • Microwave the cookie butter for 10 to 15 seconds, or until it's pourable.
  • Spoon the cookie butter evenly into each of the hollow cupcakes, then set them aside.

For the Biscoff Buttercream:

  • Add the butter and cookie butter to the bowl of a large stand mixer, or another large bowl, and beat until smooth.
  • Add in the vanilla and a pinch of salt, and beat them in.
  • Add in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time until the mixture starts to thicken.
  • Then add in the heavy cream, 1 TBS at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Spread the buttercream onto the top of each cupcake, using a butterknife, or piping bag and tip. (Pictured is a 1M tip)
  • Drizzle remaining cookie butter over the top of the buttercream, and sprinkle with crushed Biscoff cookies, if desired.
