What is Biscoff?
Biscoff is a cookie spread made from speculoos cookies. The speculoos biscuits are also called lotus biscoff cookies or biscoff cookies. It is flavored with warm spices and has a toasty caramel like taste. The spread comes in smooth or crunchy just like peanut butter. This recipe uses the Biscoff sandwich cookies and not the spread, however if you have the spread on hand you can use it to decorate the balls.

How do I make Biscoff Truffles
Start by taking out cream cheese so it is softened. Once softened you can get to work on the main part of this recipe.
Step 1: Crush the cookies
Place cookies in a food processor until they resemble fine crumbs, this is best done in a food processor. If you’re in a bind you can do this by hand by placing the Biscoff biscuits in a ziplock bag and bashing it with a rolling pin.
Step 2: Add the cream cheese
Set aside 1 tablespoon on cookies for decoration. Add the softened cream cheese into the crushed cookies. Mix and mix and mix until the cream cheese is completely incorporated and there are no white streaks.
Step 3: Roll into balls and place in the freezer
Take about a teaspoon of the mixture and roll into small balls. Place the biscoff balls onto a lined baking tray or cookie sheet. Continue to roll until all the mixture is finished. It should make approximately 36 balls. Place the tray into the freezer for 15 – 30 minutes so they can firm up which will make them easier to coat in the chocolate.
Step 4: Coat balls in chocolate
Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl (or glass) in the microwave in 30 second intervals until almost melted, mix well until the melts are smooth and silky. Add a teaspoon of non flavoured oil to smoothen out the chocolate further. Remove the Biscoff cookie balls from the freezer. Place a ball on a fork and dip the fork into the chocolate, remove once coated. Gently tap the fork on the edge of the glass to remove any excess chocolate coating. Set the coated ball back onto the tray to set at room temperature
Step 5: Decorate
Drizzle any left over melted chocolate onto the balls and sprinkle with the reserved crushed cookies to decorate. Alternatively you can use melted Biscoff to decorate.
Tips for making these easy Biscoff Truffles

Nope, they’re pretty easy for such an indulgent treat. You only need 3 main ingredients and you’re good to go.
Compound chocolate is chocolate that doesn’t contain cocoa butter. This means that it is not real chocolate and therefore does not need to be tempered. Tempering is a tricky process and definitely not needed for a quick and simple dessert like this one.
These can be stored in an airtight container for 1-2 days at room temperature or 3-4 days in the fridge. The chocolate may crack after the first day, however this doesn’t change the texture or flavour.
