I have not been able to eat chocolate for the better part of a year. The reason? I’m still nursing Kellan and for the longest time every single time I would eat chocolate, he would break out in eczema. It took me a while to figure out that is what it was but when I did it was just a little devastating. I would try every few months to see if he could tolerate it and each time more eczema. Until a few weeks ago. Yep. I can finally eat chocolate again. These cookies are the first way I decided to enjoy it. And enjoy it I did. About 3 dozen times.
Alright, 3 dozen is a bit of an exaggeration. But not much. These are in one word: addicting. So addicting in fact that, I’ve made them every week since I first tried the recipe. Ryan loves them. I love them and Kellan loves them. They are chewy. Chocolaty. And Biscoffy.
What is biscoffy you ask? Well it’s a word that I just made up about 30 seconds ago that means that these cookies are loaded with Biscoff spread. Luscious, creamy, dreamy Biscoff spread. It’s all the loveliness of spiced Biscoff cookies but in spread form. It’s heaven I tell you. Heaven.
Biscoff and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Chewy, chocolaty, Biscoffy cookies.
Makes 3 dozen
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 (12 ounce) bag dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup Biscoff spread
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together until fluffy. About 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time. Scraping down the sides of the bowl after each egg. Beat in vanilla extract.
- In another bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly beat flour mixture into egg mixture. Mix well. Fold in dark chocolate chips and Biscoff spread.
- Roll out tablespoonfuls of dough and place them on cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until edges have started to brown. Note: when baked for 10 minutes these are chewy cookies. Baked for 12 minutes they get a bit crispy.
