Biscoff might be crack and Biscoff Cheesecake Ice Cream

I have a confession to make: Before a few weeks ago, I had never tried Biscoff spread. Never ever. (I know, I know…) But now I have. And I estimate that in about three months I’ll probably weigh somewhere around 400 pounds. Thanks in advance, Biscoff.

Now, I know that Biscoff cannot legally list “crack” as an ingredient on the jar, but who are they kidding? There must be crack in this product. Why else have I dipped anything and everything straight into the jar, including, but not limited to, spoons, knives, and my fingers.

Biscoff spread has been consuming my brain and I’ve been thinking about ways to use it in a dessert, although as previously discussed, straight out of the jar does not hurt my feelings one bit. But I took the plunge and added a large amount of Biscoff into my cheesecake ice cream base, which resulted in a heavenly frozen concoction that I could eat all day, every day. The texture here is more like semifreddo than typical ice cream and about 9 zillion times better.

Biscoff Cheesecake Ice Cream

Makes about 1 quart

8 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup Biscoff spread
1/2 cup frozen whipped topping
1/4 cup milk
2-4 Biscoff cookies

Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in an electric mixer until smooth. Mix in Biscoff spread, then add frozen whipped topping and milk. Lastly, crumble 2-4 cookies (depending on how much crunch you want) into the mixer and run until incorporated.
Pour into a container and freeze until set. Let soften for several minutes prior to scooping.

Do I really even need to say anything else about this ice cream? If a recipe has “Biscoff” and “cheesecake” in its name, you should just go make it…really soon. 


  1. I think I might have to try this biscoff/crack cheescake ice cream recipe. :-)

  2. You crack me up...pun intended ;D Now this does sound heavenly! I have to find my ice cream maker! Licking my lips already!

  3. Oh, I am afraid....very afraid! Where do you get this Biscoff stuff. I've never heard of it? I'm off to Googleland! I thought I was bad with Hagen Daus Dulce de Leche....this is really scary!

  4. Yes, Karen...that stuff IS crack in a jar! I tend to eat it by the spoonful straight from the jar when I buy it. I picked up a jar at the market last week...and sighed and put it back on the shelf. Perhaps Biscoff and I will meet again in my kitchen when it's not bathing suit season :)! BTW? The crunchy is even more addictive if you can believe that!

    1. Wicked good is what Biscoff spread is. And the crunchy version is even better. Nutella is right up there as well. Alas, all I've done so far is to eat with a spoon and a large glass of skim milk (hangs head in shame.) This looks delicious, and since making a cheesecake tomorrow, perhaps I'll restrain myself and put a swirl of crunchy Biscoff in.

  5. Isn't Biscoff just grand? I fell in love with it, too, when I discovered it! Your ice cream looks out of this world insane! I've still got many cookie packs left so I'm going to try this recipe out. Because sharing is caring, here's my Biscoff Tiramisu recipe ;-)

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I forgive you for not knowing about Biscoff. This ice cream clearly makes up for any hurt feelings. Lovely!

  7. I haven't had the pleasure of Biscoff yet. Honestly, I'm excited and terrified at the same time. This could me an addiction and you are so not playing fair with those gorgeous pictures!

  8. Amazingly I have yet to try Biscoff spread. But considering that I cannot keep either peanut butter or Nutella in the house due to my complete willpower failure, I'm assuming that the Biscoff crack jar would be added to that list. Sigh. I wonder, are there a lot of fashionable clothing choices in the 400lb. size range?

  9. Oh, how did I miss this? I've yet to try the spread but I have had the cookies on the plane. In fact, I liked them so much that I convinced Dudette that she wouldn't and took hers too, getting her pretzels when the guy came back.

    Now I HAVE to go buy some because you've put it in cheesecake ice cream. Wow, oh wow.

  10. cheesecake ice creams are my favorite! Adding biscoff is just genius! :)

  11. I made your cheesecake ice cream last night. It is even better than it looks! It is our new favorite!

  12. I made this yesterday. It was good but very rich and sweet. You only need a small amount to satisfy your sweet tooth. The texture threw me off at first - more like a cheesecake than an ice cream. I got the Biscoff (spread and cookies) at Cost Plus World Market. I still can't figure out how Biscoff tastes so much like peanut butter but there are no nuts listed in the of those "How did they do that?" mysteries. Thanks for your always great photos, descriptions and recipes and for sharing a little bit of your life with us, Karen.
