Chocolate Cupcakes with Biscoff Cream Cheese Icing

I absolutely love biscoff biscuits. Dipped into a hot cup of tea, they are just amazing and so addictive! When I saw the biscoff spread in shops and the biscoff recipes floating around the food blogs, I knew I had to try it out. And these cupcakes didn't disappoint! The chocolate coupled with the biscoff cream cheese and topped with a biscoff biscuit were one of the best flavour combinations I've ever made. I would definitely recommend making these, I don't know how anyone could not like these cupcakes! 



Recipe (makes about 8 cupcakes)

113g butter/margarine
113g caster sugar
2 eggs
90g self raising flour
30g cocoa powder

Biscoff Cream Cheese Icing
250g icing sugar
62g cream cheese
62g unsalted butter
1 tablespoon biscoff spread

& Biscoff biscuits to decorate


Firstly, preheat the oven to 160c. Mix together the margarine and caster sugar until light and fluffy.

Whisk in the eggs until combined.

Fold in the self raising flour and cocoa powder until mixed thoroughly. Pour into cupcake cases and bake for around 25 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.





Whilst the cupcakes are cooling, make the cream cheese icing. To do this, sieve the icing sugar to remove any lumps. Then whisk in the butter and cream cheese until just combined; be careful not to over whisk as this can create a watery icing. Add in a tablespoon of biscoff spread and mix in (I found this amount created the perfect subtle flavour of biscoff, but feel free to add more if you need to). 




Add this to a piping bag with a 2d nozzle and pipe onto the cupcakes. Then top with a biscoff biscuit and enjoy!
