A hot chocolate that tastes like buttery cinnamon Biscoff cookies? Yes please! Biscoff hot chocolate is made with Biscoff cookies melted in milk. If you love them, you’ll love this Biscoff hot drink, too! Perfect on a winter day with a generous portion of whipped cream and more speculoos cookie crumbs!
I love Lotus Biscoff cookies. Their flavour is so unique! And the amazing thing is that they are so sweet that they go wonderfully with a cup of black coffee. But my true weakness is speculoos cookies and warm milk. I drown them in my milk and stir them in, and they melt so wonderfully and make my milk taste like sweet cinnamon cookies. I love it!
So this is why I thought – why not add cocoa and see where this goes? After all, it’s what I had also done when I first made Biscoff panna cotta. Well, the result is this recipe. Biscoff hot chocolate is as good as you imagine and it really only requires what I just described above. So simple.
For detailed quantities please see the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
How to make Biscoff hot chocolate
- Heat the milk until it steams and almost reaches boiling temperature but remove from the heat before it boils. You can also heat the milk in the microwave if you prefer.
- Add the Biscoff cookies to the milk and stir in order to plunge them in the warm milk to soften. Add cocoa powder and blend until smooth.
This hot chocolate drink is very filling since it contains blended cookies in it! 200 ml of milk may seem like a single portion but the final product is for two. Serve this hot chocolate in small cups.
You can top your Biscoff hot chocolate with whipped cream and a sprinkle of powdered cinnamon or some Biscoff crumbs. I have a true weakness for whipped cream and I can’t imagine hot chocolate without it.
There is no need to add sugar as the cookies are already supplying it. Biscoff cookies are particularly sweet so despite adding unsweetened cocoa powder there really is no need for extra sugar. However if you want your hot drink sweeter you can add some.
Keep the (Biscoff) mood
Biscoff cookies are so awesome they do a great job as cheesecake base, too! Pair them with a spiced filling like this gingerbread cheesecake on Biscoff base.
For a delicious dessert idea try Biscoff panna cotta. It’s made in a similar way to this hot drink: with the speculoos cookies melted in the milk and cream mixture.
Same same but different? Swedish ginger thins are spiced biscuits that are quite similar to Biscoff but more on the ginger side.
And lastly, if you like hot chocolate you need to try thick Italian hot chocolate! But top it with Italian cookies, like amaretti for example.
