Biscoff-Stuffed White Chocolate Chunk Lava Cookies - made August 29, 2012
Remember the Nutella-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies? I enjoyed those so much I had to come up with an excuse to make them again. Or at least another version of it. When a friend came over for our Fantasy Football draft last week, I had the perfect excuse. But since I'd rather experiment than make the same thing over again, this time, instead of nutella, I used biscoff spread for the lava part. I also swapped out the milk chocolate chunks for white chocolate chunks, using the only block of white chocolate I had bought in Europe for just such an occasion.
Let me set modesty aside for a sec. Because really, who are we kidding? This thing rocks. I mean, serious goodness. As in, yeah, I'll go run a half marathon so I can eat this kind of stuff. Or, er, maybe a 5K. Don't make me choose between this version or the nutella version though. They were both good.
To make this version, start with the cookie recipe in the link for the Nutella-Stuffed chocolate chip lava cookies above, substitute white chocolate chunks or chips for the milk chocolate and use biscoff spread instead of nutella. Trader Joe's Speculoos Cookie Butter Spread is a good alternative if you don't have biscoff spread. For lava cookies, I'd recommend baking this in ramekins - line the bottom third of the ramekin with the cookie dough, drop a spoonful of biscoff spread in the middle, and cover completely with more cookie dough, filling the ramekin up to 3/4 full. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (if you can last that long) then bake at 350 degrees until golden brown on top, about 10-12 minutes.
