Biscoff Truffle Ingredients
- Cookie butter – Biscoff cookie butter.
- Butter – Unsalted butter, softened to room temperature. If you use salted butter, skip adding the salt later in the recipe.
- Vanilla – Real vanilla extract.
- Salt – If you use salted butter, you’ll want to skip this ingredient.
- Sugar – Powdered sugar, also called confectioners’ sugar or icing sugar.
- White chocolate – We used white chocolate chips but you could also candy melts, almond bark, or traditional milk or semi-sweet chocolate.
- Shortening – Creates a smoother and more manageable consistency than melted chocolate alone. Adding shortening helps make a more evenly coated cookie butter ball.
- Biscoff cookies – Smashed/ground.

How do you dip a cookie butter ball?
To dip the balls, first shape them into spheres – this is best done by rolling them in your hands. Then place them in the refrigerator for a few hours, or into the freezer for about 30 minutes to set. You want them to be firm so they won’t melt in the hot white chocolate mixture.
Next, spear a ball about halfway through with a toothpick, and then dip or swirl it in your melted chocolate. Place the white chocolate covered cookie butter ball on a parchment lined baking sheet and remove the toothpick, and gently smooth chocolate over any holes or bubbles that may have been created.
How do you keep the truffles from melting?
Make sure the balls are chilled until firm before dipping in the hot melted white chocolate. Place in the refrigerator for a few hours, or in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
If you are doubling the recipe (or more), remove the balls from refrigeration in small batches so they stay cold and firm.
How long are biscoff truffles good for? (Storage recommendations)
At Room Temperature
Our biscoff truffles recipe can be stored for several days at room temperature in a cool dry place. Make sure it is kept in a well-sealed container. Do not store them unrefrigerated in a warm or hot climate.
In the Refrigerator
They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Again, you’ll want to make sure the balls are in a sealed container so they don’t take on the smell or flavor of other items in your fridge.
In the Freezer
My favorite way to these is in the freezer! They will last for several months, so you can make a big batch ahead of time and just pull out what you need in the moment.
Tips and tricks
✅ It is important that you have added enough powdered sugar so that you achieve a workable cookie butter dough, but not so much that it becomes crumbly. If your dough is too runny, add additional powdered sugar in small increments.
✅ Make sure to chill your dough balls for a sufficient amount of time between forming them and dipping them to make sure they will keep their shape and stay on the toothpick while you are dipping.
✅ When storing your biscoff balls, use parchment paper between the layers to keep them from sticking to one another.
✅ Prepare a double batch, because these go fast!
