  • 1/2 cup biscoff or cookie butter (125 grams)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder 31 grams
  • 4 cups powdered sugar 500 grams
  • 2 to 4 tbsp milk or water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Chocolate Cupcakes

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
  3. On another bowl, or measuring cup, mix the egg, milk, oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the sifted dry ingredients.
  5. Whisk until incorporated.
  6. Pour the hot coffee (or hot water) over the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into cupcake tins, filling up only halfway.
  8. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 18 minutes, until you can touch the surface of a cupcake with your finger and it springs right back, or an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the cupcakes cool.

Chocolate Biscoff Buttercream

  1. Whip the butter with an electric mixer for 1 to 2 minutes until fluffy and creamy.
  2. Add the cookie butter and mix to combine.
  3. Add the cocoa powder and powdered sugar, mix on low to combine.
  4. Raise the speed and cream on medium high.
  5. If the buttercream is dry, add some milk or water to it. If the buttercream is too runny, add more powdered sugar to make it stiffer.
  6. Finally add the vanilla and mix to combine.
  7. Place the Chocolate Biscoff Frosting in a piping bag fitted with the tip of choice.

To assemble

  1. Remove the center of each cupcake using a spoon, a knife or an apple corer.
  2. Place the cookie butter in a piping bag and pipe it in the middle of the cupcakes, or use a spoon to place some cookie butter in the center of each cupcake.
  3. Replace the cupcakes with the bit of cake you removed earlier.
  4. Top with the decorations if desired.

Decorations

  1. Melt the chocolate or chocolate melts and spoon them on the bottom of the silicone molds. I used heart molds.
  2. Spread the chocolate up the sides of the molds and place it in the fridge for 5 to 10 minute.
  3. Then pipe or spoon some cookie butter in the middle of the molds.
  4. Top with more chocolate to fill up the mold.
  5. Place the mold back in the fridge until completely solid.
  6. I also did mini chocolate bars but didn’t fill those with cookie butter because they are too thin.
  7. For the cherries, I dipped them in the leftover melted chocolate and set them on a plate to dry completely.
  8. Once the chocolate cherries were dry, I dipped them in a container of gold luster dust.

Storage

  1. Store the cupcakes in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.

Recipe Notes

Edible Gold Leaf- I used Genuine Edible Gold Leaf to decorate the hearts and chocolate bars.

Luster Dust- For the cherries, I used HomeHere Gold Luster Dust Edible Cake.

Heart Mold- I used this Heart Shaped Silicone Mold to make the chocolate hearts.

Mini Chocolate Bars- For the mini chocolate bars, I used the mini molds included in this Chocolate Molds set.

Chocolate- If you choose to use chocolate instead of chocolate melts to make the hearts, make sure to temper the chocolate first. Here is a good article about how to temper chocolate.

Piping tip- I used a Wilton 6B Decorating Tip to pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes.
