Biscoff Cookie Butter Chocolate Cupcakes

I have a delicious recipe for you! Cookie Butter Chocolate Cupcakes!  I’m assuming by now you’ve tried cookie butter. AKA Biscoff spread. AKA cookie in a tub.  It’s really yummy.  If you haven’t had had a Biscoff cookie, they taste like… brown sugar, caramel, with a hint of spice. The first time I had one was from American Airlines years ago. Anyway…

The chocolate cupcake recipe is not mine. It’s from Niner Bakes. 

Chocolate Cupcakes


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup hot boiling water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line your cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  2. In your mixer bowl, mix together eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract. Beat together.
  3. In a separate bowl, add sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and salt.  Mix together.  
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix.
  5. Carefully pour in boiling water then mix.  *start mixing slowly at first so you don’t get burned!*
  6. Pour the very thin batter into the cupcake pan, filling the liners 2/3 full.
  7. Bake for 20-24 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  8. Let cupcakes cool completely before frosting. (If you don’t, your frosting will look like mine in the pictures!)

Biscoff Cookie Butter Frosting


  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup cookie butter spread (can use the crunchy or smooth spread)
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup milk (skim or low fat is fine)


  1. Put all ingredients into a bowl. Mix together.  **Note, if it’s not the right consistency, you may add more powdered sugar.
  2. Frost once cupcakes are cool. If not, the frosting runs (like in my pictures! Hey, I was hungry!)

If you would like to substitute peanut butter instead of biscoff cookie butter in the frosting, you can. I did. It’s really easy.  Then you have peanut butter cupcakes.
