Fun with Biscoff Spread!

This summer, my friend Bridget over at Bake at 350 got me hooked on the new Biscoff Spread! I've always loved Biscoff Cookies (I even served them at my wedding!) so you can imagine how excited I was when Biscoff put all that luscious taste into a creamy spread!!
Since then, we've had a great time making all kinds of fun recipes, here are my kids' two current favorite creations...Little H loves these sweet treats because they taste like a decadent dessert (but are packed with all kinds of "good for you" stuff!)

Biscoff Energy Balls
makes 24
½ c light corn syrup
½ c light brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ c sliced almonds
½ c dried cherries (optional)
½ c ground flax seed
1 ½ granola cereal
¾ c Biscoff Spread
½ c white chocolate chips

Directions: In a medium saucepan, combine corn syrup and brown sugar over medium heat until bubbly then cook an additional 30 seconds, stirring often. Remove from heat and stir in all other ingredients except chocolate chips. Let sit for 10 minutes until cool enough to handle. Roll into 1” balls and place on wax paper. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over balls and let set completely, about 10 minutes. Store in airtight container up to 1 week.

This is Little C's current favorite lunch staple! She loves to whip them up herself and always feels special when she gets out her fancy chopsticks and "Bushi" (Biscoff and Sushi;)) at lunchtime. :)

Biscoff "Bushi" Rolls
2 slices bread, any flavor
2 Tablespoons Biscoff spread
4 teaspoons cherry jelly

Roll one slice bread flat with a rolling pin and cut off crusts (optional). Spread 1 tablespoon Biscoff spread on bread, covering 2/3 of the bread. Spread 2 teaspoons jelly on top of the Biscoff spread. Roll up bread, starting at the end covered with Biscoff spread. Cut into slices with a sharp knife and place in container. Repeat steps with second slice of bread. (optional: garnish with fake “sushi grass” and serve with chopsticks).

We entered these two recipes in Biscoff's Lunch Envy Challenge! Go here to check it out and join in on the fun!
