Biscoff Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Biscoff Ice Cream

If Americans love Oreos…then Europeans love Biscoff.

1 in 5 cookies eaten in Belgium are these crisp caramel flavor cookies (source: Biscoff)

And 1 in 3 cookies eaten by me are these crisp caramel flavor cookies, and I’m not even Belgian.

They’re good, people. They’re really good.

Biscoff Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Haven’t had Biscoff cookies before?

Well maybe you’ve had Biscoff spread (aka Speculoos).

…you know…cookie spread.

That’s right, you can now spread your cookies.

On toast.

Or eat it by the spoonful.

OR…swirl it into ice cream.

That’s what I did.

Biscoff Spread Ice Cream

The stuff spreads like smooth peanut butter but tastes like you’re eating a creamy cinnamon graham cracker.

But my ice cream wouldn’t be complete with just the Biscoff spread.

I had to put crumbled Biscoff cookies in there too:

Biscoff Cookie Ice Cream

Add some chocolate chunks in there too and you’ve got my absolute favorite ice cream.

The stuff is magical.

Biscoff Speculoos Ice Cream

So break out those ice cream makers (!!! They now have pink ice cream makers???), because summer is coming to a close!

Biscoff Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Yield: Serves 6-8

Ingredients:

2 cups milk
4 tsp cornstarch
1.25 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
3 tbsp cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp Biscoff spread
10 Biscoff cookies, crumbled
2 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate

Directions:

Whisk to blend 1/4 cup of the milk with the cornstarch to make a slurry. Set it aside.

In a 4-quart saucepan, bring the rest of the milk, the heavy cream, sugar, corn syrup, and sea salt to a boil over medium high heat. Whisk the bottom occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn. Once the mixture reaches a boil, cook the mixture for 4 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch slurry, and bring the mixture to a boil again, then cook for 2 more minutes, until the cornstarch has worked its magic and the liquid has thickened.

Place the cream cheese in a bowl, and whisk 1/4 cup of the milk cream mixture to it. Whisk until the cream cheese has dissolved a bit and has evenly dispersed. Then, whisk in the remainder of the hot ice cream liquid.

Pour the mixture into a plastic bag, and seal it up nice and tight. Immerse the bag in ice water, until thoroughly chilled, which will take about 15 minutes.

Pour the chilled ice cream mixture into your prepared ice cream maker, and add the biscoff spread spoonfuls, crumbled biscoff cookies, and chopped bittersweet chocolate. Spin the ice cream for about 15 minutes, then scoop into a container and freeze for another couple hours or so. Enjoy!!!!

The base of this recipe is from Jeni Britton Bauer's ice cream base of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams.

    I’ve never had Biscoff cookies before but you are tempting me to try them with this ice cream, I just want to grab a spoon and eat my computer screen!

    I loved Biscoff before it was cool! This ice cream is genius and looks fabulous! I made a biscoff gelato a while back and it was heavenly. I can only imagine how good it is with the addition of crumbled cookies and chocolate.

    I’ve never tasted Biscoff spread…which is probably a good thing for my waistline’s future. :) But I do love cookies crushed up into ice cream. This looks divine!

    This sounds amazing. Biscoff is getting some serious blog love lately. It’s time to try it!

    That looks super tasty. I must seek out those biscuits.

    Wow that looks so delicious! I have had both the Biscoff cookies and spread but I can’t wait to make some ice cream with a ton of Biscoff yummy-ness!

    Well, that just looks amazing. I had Biscoff cookies for the first time while visiting San Francisco in May! The coffeeshop where my boyfriend grabbed a drink offered free cookies with each beverage, and we were fighting over those things in two seconds flat!

    This is amazing!! I love Biscoff flavored anything, and this ice cream looks heavenly!

    After seeing so many ice cream recipes over the course of this summer, I think I’ll have to get one. This looks good.

    I love biscoff cookies and putting them in ice cream is one of the best ideas ever, so i just had to include in my ice cream round up. Happy Fourth of July!

      Thanks Cassie! I hope you’re enjoying working for CCC and more!

    Hi Joanne, is this possible without using an icecream maker? Are there alternatives? I don’t have icecream maker at home… sad…

    My family and I lived in Belgium for four years. We love speculoos! There was an ice cream shop in the village that we lived in that made speculoos ice cream. Since moving back to the states we make our own speculoos ice cream by adding either crushed Biscoff cookies or the Biscoff spread to vanilla ice cream. But I think we will have to purchase an ice cream maker to try your homemade recipe (it sounds amazing). I love the addition of chocolate chunks. My favorite speculoos cookies are the ones with a layer of chocolate on the back.

    • Joanne Ozug replied on March 2nd, 2014 at 5:22 pm

      That’s really neat! I have never seen speculoos with chocolate on the back. And where in Belgium? My husband and I are thinking of vacationing there in April or May…maybe Bruges or Brussels. We’ll see!

      • Angie replied on March 2nd, 2014 at 8:19 pm

        We lived in the Wallonia region the closest town was Mons (20 minutes away). I would go to both Brussels and Bruges. Both are amazing. Have a Liege waffle. There are small waffle shops around the Grande Place (one is on the rue toward the Mannequin Pis) in Brussels, they sell the Brussels waffles and Liege waffles. The Brussels waffles are good but oh my the Liege waffles are amazing. You can get them with chocolate, strawberries and Chantilly cream but they are wonderful plain. If you get a chance to go to a Carrefour (local grocery store) you can find the speculoos with chocolate on the back they are made by Lotus (the same company that makes Biscoff). One final tip. On the weekends (Friday evening through Sunday evening) round trip train tickets within Belgium are half price, but only on round trip and the ticket must be used the same weekend. That way if you decide to stay Brussels you can still take an inexpensive day trip to Bruges. Safe travels…love your blog!
