What is it in these biscuits and the spread that makes them so hard to resist?
Yes they are sweet (probably too sweet) and taste sort of toasted and caramel, but so are other products.
However, Biscoff seems to me like the baked goods equivalent of crack cocaine.
Get thee behind me!

I know and my hairdresser gets chocolate covered ones in!

When I made pancakes last week I spread them with biscoff spread and sliced banana

Have you tried a Biscoff crispy creme doughnut?

Oh wow

Get in my belly

Had one for my birthday yesterday

It was the only thing that salvaged a completely rubbish day

Had them with a coffee for my birthday today haha they are so yummy why I don’t know they do literally melt in your mouth though

Apparently, the ice cream and lollies are the best. I can't eat them as they contain gluten.

Sorry you had a rubbish birthday VioletSky. sad Hope things improve soon.

I keep individually wrapped ones in my's handbag for the GC my mum always did for my DD along with the little packets of sugar. Just one and a cappuccino and you've had a big treat.

There are often recipes on FB using Biscoff spread - cheesecakes and the like. I've never tried it, but maybe I will now.

Doodledog Sat 04-Mar-23 17:54:24

Ooh. It's on offer at Sainsbury's. You lot are a terrible influence grin. I've added a tub to my next delivery order.

I'd eat Biscoff spread right off a spoon. Love it, but not during Lent. sad

Mollygo Sat 04-Mar-23 18:06:04

Got one in my handbag. I’d never heard of the spread till now. Something to try!

I make cupcakes and decorate with Biscoff buttercream. Yummy!!

Callistemon21 Sat 04-Mar-23 23:02:42

What am I missing?
Are these the biscuits you sometimes get in twos with a tea or coffee?
I've never seen a whole packet! I rarely buy biscuits because I'd eat them.

Doughnuts? Spread? Where?

Callistemon21 Sat 04-Mar-23 23:04:14

Ooh, Biscoff Easter egg!

There's a café down our way that sells Biscoff flapjacks.

What about muffins too?

Redhead56 Sun 05-Mar-23 00:26:00

I have used them to make the base of a cheesecake my DD and I are addicted to them.

Ooh, I give them a try too.

Thank goodness this is one treat I don’t like. It ranks along with Nutella and Cadbury Crème eggs - just as well really, or they’d be in my basket every week!

Blondiescot Mon 06-Mar-23 09:27:02

I made Biscoff cheesecake at xmas and it was delicious (even if I do say so myself!) My GS loves the little biscuits - he calls them tea biscuits (I've no idea why). The ice cream and lollies are lovely too - I've sampled them, solely in the interests of research, you understand?

Doodledog Tue 14-Mar-23 23:13:21

I don't suppose you have the recipe, Blondiescot? I bought a jar of spread as FB kept sending me videos of cheesecakes, but of course they haven't sent any since I got it.

SpringyChicken Tue 14-Mar-23 23:22:09

Am I the only person in the world who doesn’t like them? They taste burnt to me.

Mollygo Tue 14-Mar-23 23:49:37

SpringyChicken, I do like them, but I sympathise.
I dislike so many biscuits - custard creams, bourbons etc that I’m relieved I don’t have to buy them. At least if you’ve tasted them and found you don’t like them, you won’t feel the need to buy any of the Biscoff flavoured things mentioned on here.
