Ah, Biscoff…it has a cult following for a reason. If they’re not eating the stuff out of the jar like us, people are throwing it into all sorts of inventive recipes on social media, from Biscoff Lasagnes (yes, really) to Biscoff iced lattes.
But now that summer is coming, we might have just found a new favourite Biscoff trend of all time.
Biscoff ice cream sandwiches are sweeping TikTok at the moment, and they look like a literal dream.
Now, we’re not always advocates of following TikTok recipes here at Twisted (we’ve learnt the hard way that some work better than others), but the beauty of the Biscoff ice cream sandwich is that it’s super easy, and suitable for any cooking ability.
There are loads of recipes on the video sharing app, but one of the most popular comes from user @youukneesx. In fact, her take on the creation has now reached more than three million people, and has almost 350,000 likes.
You can head to her page for the full recipe, but all you need is all purpose cream, condensed milk, Biscoff spread and Biscoff biscuits.
Whip the cream until it’s super fluffy then add condensed milk and Biscoff spread, then layer the cream and the Biscoff so that the cream is in-between two evenly aligned biscuits and pop in the freezer overnight.
The next morning, you just have to chop up your individual ice cream sandwiches and you’re good to go.
If you’re feeling lazy, you can also substitute half of this recipe for a tub of pre-made Biscoff Ice Cream, which you can buy from several UK supermarkets. This saves the overnight part of the recipe.
The only difference here is that your ice cream sandwich will be a lot less smooth than if you’ve set it yourself (rustic, if you will).
Of course, we’d be remiss not to offer you a few tips to take your ice cream sandwich to the next level, too.
If you’re feeling extra fancy, why not channel your inner Twisted chef and dunk your ice cream sarnie in chocolate or melted Biscoff spread before you set it in the fridge.
Feeling even more inventive? Why not switch the Biscoff biscuits for slabs of Biscoff brownie or even Biscoff cookies?
The humble ice cream sandwich really is whatever you make it, and that’s why it’s a thing of beauty.
With the addition of Lotus Biscoff, we can’t think of a better recipe to whack out during the summer months.
