Biscoff Caramel Latte
Wednesday, 14 August 2013
I’ve been hearing about Biscoff Spread on other food blogs for years. A creamy spread (like peanut butter) made out of cookies – this stuff sounded dangerous. I kept putting off buying it because I just knew i wouldn’t be able to stop eating it. I finally caved in last week and yeah…the jar is gone. I think Russ tried a small spoonful. So let’s just blame him and not my insatiable cravings for this stuff.
If you’re wondering what this cookie butter heck this stuff is, below there is a close up shot. It’s the consistency of very creamy peanut butter, but it tastes like Biscoff, a cookie that’s most famous here for being served on Delta Airlines flights. Biscoff is the brand name for speculoos cookies, which are buttery, brown sugar and spice-flavored cookies that are similar to gingersnaps and popular in Europe. Since the spread is made from just Biscoff cookies, it happens to be vegan and nut-free. It also doesn’t have any trans fat, preservatives, genetically modified ingredients or artificial colors. (That makes me feel slightly better about eating the whole jar.)
While you can definitely enjoy this spread straight from the jar (ahem, like me), or spread on toast or apples, I created a very easy coffee drink that is just as irresistible as the spread itself. Take a spoonful of Biscoff, a spoonful of my easy 7 minute caramel sauce, and add it to your coffee/espresso and milk for a creamy, spiced and sweet latte.
