And at the very least, this ice cream cake certainly is, and it should go on the very top of your to-try list.
My friend, Beth, made it for a party we had last weekend. It is creamy. Rich. And just downright pure deliciousness. Like the kind that you have to pace yourself with, ‘lest you inhale a much larger slice than you’ll work off on the treadmill.
If you know what I mean.
If you haven’t yet discovered Biscoff spread, do seek it out. It’s a creamy spread that is made from speculoos cookies, which are a caramelized cookie that originated in Belgium some 80 years ago. Buttery, brown sugary, with a slightly similar flavor profile to gingersnaps. Although it used to be harder to find, most grocery stores now carry it in the peanut butter and Nutella section (and Amazon carries a huge assortment of Biscoff products).
Now once you get yourself hooked on the sinful deliciousness that is Biscoff (assuming it’s new to you), there are a ton of recipes you can make with it … and, likewise, there are a ton of Pinterest boards dedicated just to Biscoff right here – dig in!
