For chocolate cupcakes:

  • 1 box chocolate fudge or devil's food cake mix
  • 3.4 oz. box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup whole or 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 cup Biscoff spread or similar cookie butter spread

For cookie butter frosting:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups Biscoff spread or similar cookie butter spread
  • 4 - 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 12 Biscoff cookies, broken in half optional garnish
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips optional garnish


For chocolate cupcakes:

  1. In a large bowl, stir together cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water, milk, and oil.

  2. Line 24 regular-sized muffin cups with paper liners.

  3. Fill muffin cups halfway with batter.

  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until tops appear set, and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

  5. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

  6. Using a teaspoon or small spoon (a grapefruit spoon works best!), hollow out a 1-inch ball in the center of each cupcake. Set aside cake crumbs for another use (cake balls, maybe?).

  7. Spoon a rounded teaspoonful of cookie butter into the center of each cupcake. The easiest way to do this is with a small cookie scoop!

For cookie butter frosting:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and cookie butter until smooth.

  2. Add 4 cups powdered sugar, beating until combined.

  3. Add heavy cream, beating until combined.

  4. Add additional powdered sugar, if needed, to achieve a thick, but fluffy frosting. It should be pipable.

  5. Pipe or spread onto cupcakes. I use a piping bag fitted with a large star tip, Wilton 1M!

  6. If desired, garnish by sticking 1/2 a Biscoff cookie into the frosting of each cupcake, and top with a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips.
