Layered Chocolate Biscoff Fudge - Life made Sweeter.jpg

 

Have you been covered knee-deep in flour, butter, sugar, chocolate, wrapping paper, yarn and a toddler lately?

No? Just me? Lucky you ;)

Haha, just kidding – sort of.

Seriously though, if you are still wondering what to make or give to your friends and family for Christmas but feel like you are running low on time, homemade fudge makes a special treat and awesome gift.

This Easy Layered Chocolate Almond Biscoff Fudge with Cinnamon Chips tastes like pure indulgence.

The best part is, it doesn’t take too much of your time and both layers come together easily in the microwave.

That means no slaving over the stove with a candy thermometer that you can’t seem to find because your toddler decided to hide it ;)  Hehe, kidding again – but he tried to.

For each layer, just toss all the ingredients in a microwaveable bowl for 20-30 second increments and stir in between heating until everything has melted.

Spread the separate layers into a parchment or foil lined pan and chill for at least 2 hours.

Toss some cinnamon chips on top.  Or you can add some sprinkles or chopped nuts instead.  Feel free to dress it up anyway you like :)

I think the hardest part was waiting for this to set in the fridge.

While you’re waiting, you can finish up wrapping the gifts, address those Christmas cards, clean the house and make some more cookies. Yay!

Lift the fudge out using the foil or parchment paper and set the whole thing onto a cutting board. Cut into pieces using a sharp knife.

You can sneak in a few pieces here and there. Trust me, it will be hard to stop though.

Quickly package up the rest for your loved ones :)

Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone :)

Easy Layered Chocolate Almond Biscoff Fudge with Cinnamon Chips

This layered Chocolate and Biscoff layered fudge makes a great holiday gift for family and friends and a special treat to enjoy anytime.

Ingredients

    Chocolate Fudge Layer
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used a combination of Ghirardelli and Callebaut chips)
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I used Callebaut chips)
  • 1 14-oz can condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • *optional - 1/3 cup toasted chopped almonds or nuts of your choice
  • Biscoff Fudge Layer
  • 1 cup Biscoff spread
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • *1/3 cup cinnamon chips, sprinkles or chopped nuts - optional to sprinkle over the top

Instructions

    Chocolate Fudge Layer
  1. Line an 8x8 square pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large microwaveble bowl, combine the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. Microwave in 20-30 second increments until just melted, stirring well in between. Total time may vary usually around 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir well to ensure all the chocolate is melted, then add the vanilla and salt. Stir until the candy is smooth and well-mixed. Toss in chopped nuts and combine.
  4. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer and chill for 15 minutes IMG_0289.jpg IMG_0380.jpg
  5. Biscoff Fudge Layer
  6. Meanwhile, in a medium microwaveable bowl, microwave the butter and Biscoff in 20 second increments until melted, stirring in between. Total time may vary around 1-2 minutes.
  7. Stir in salt, vanilla and sugar and mix until combined.
  8. Pour into the prepared foil pan over the chocolate layer and spread until smooth with an off-set spatula.
  9. Toss some cinnamon chips, sprinkles or nuts on top. (optional)
  10. Chill the fudge in the refrigerator to set for at least 2 hours.
  11. Once set, using the parchment paper or foil handles, remove fudge from pan and cut into 1-inch squares and serve at room temperature.
  12. **Store excess fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator or cover in plastic wrap and freeze-able bags/containers and freeze for up to a month.

Notes

** The quality of your chocolate makes a difference in the fudge so be sure to try to use a good quality chocolate. ** Be careful not to heat the chocolate in the microwave for long increments as the chocolate may burn. Stir well in between.

**Store excess fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week or wrap in plastic wrap and freeze-able bags or containers and freeze for up to a month.

  1. This is so pretty and sounds delicious! I’m covered in a toddler right now! In fact, that’s a big reason why I am not gotten almost done for Christmas! I need to get going.

  2. I love homemade fudge, and if I don’t have to break out the candy thermometer all the better :D I have never tired to make it in a microwave before but like the idea of how easy it sounds. I’m all for an easier life and I am sure it was better for you being knee deep in paper, flour and a toddler running around :D

  3. Biscoff is awesome, and I can only imagine how glorious it must be in fudge! Thank you for posting a fudge recipe that doesn’t require a candy thermometer. For whatever reason, all of my fudges made with the thermometer have been busts… Have a great weekend, Kelly!

    • Thanks Eva, the biscoff layer was very dangerous. I had to package this up very quickly since it was so hard to stop snacking on it hehe. I find that happens to me a lot too when I make stove-top fudge – maybe my candy thermometer isn’t accurate? This microwave one set up really nicely though. Hope you have a wonderful weekend too Eva :)

  4. I love fudge and the idea of making it without having to get my candy thermometer out is always a good thing. I have never tried making it with a microwave before but you have definitely inspired me. Sounds so much easier especially if you are knee deep in wrapping paper, ribbon and a toddler! Have a great weekend :D

    • Hehe, thanks so much Emma :) This is super easy and a great fudge to start off with if you have never made fudge before, hope you get to try it and have a wonderful weekend :)

  5. I haven’t made fudge yet this holiday season! I need to fix that – I love that this version has a chocolate and a cookie butter layer!! I would love a piece right now! Have a great weekend Kelly : )

  6. I am obsessed with biscoff/cookie butter. And your fudge looks delicious with the 2 layers and the cute chocolate chips on top. Love this Kelly!

    • Thanks so much Chelsea, I’m so glad you like this :) Hehe, totally with you on the biscoff/cookie butter obsession, that’s the addictive/dangerous layer of this fudge :)

  7. Oh wait, wait, wait. Did I just read “microwave fudge”? “Chocolate and Biscoff”? “Cinnamon chips”?
    I don’t think this stuff could get any better! And the fact that it’s so easy and quick to make is great. I haven’t started gift baking yet, and I don’t think I’ll get to until next week, when all of my exams are over :–( So quick sweets like these are always welcome.
    Thanks for sharing and have a lovely weekend! xo

  8. Biscoff fudge sounds very “dangerous”, Kelly! I tried my first biscoff cookie in SF over the summer and it is good stuff. I’m trying to stay away from it and this won’t help. I love the duo layers here and it really couldn’t be easier, which is totally for me. I’ve made fudge similar to this before and it really is so nice and simple and since it’s so rich and lovely, a little goes a long way. Your version looks so special with the two layers. I’m sure anyone would feel the love receiving this from you! And PS – except for the toddler part, I’m totally with you. I am constantly replenishing my stash of butter! xo

    • Hehe, yes, the biscoff layer is super dangerous! I couldn’t stop snacking on this while I was cutting them into pieces so I quickly had to package them up for my neighbors and friend’s party this weekend.
      Thanks so much Monica, I’ll bet your fudge tastes incredible too :) Hehe, I hear you on the butter – I stocked up lots last time it was on sale and stuck a few in the freezer but still ran out. Happy baking and hope you have a wonderful weekend :) xo

  9. I NEED to get my hands on this magical Biscoff Spread. I’m going to NY this Christmas and I fear my suitcases will be packed with cinnamon chips, biscoff spread…all of these things I can’t get in Jamaica. This fudge looks SO good and sounds so easy to make! Pinning!

    • Thanks so much Jessica :) Hehe, Biscoff is so tasty but very dangerous – I had to package this fudge up so fast since I couldn’t stop snacking on it :) Thanks so much for the pin too and have a great weekend :)

  10. Oh, YUM! I made my first layered fudge last week…and now I must try yours!

    • Thanks Liz! Hehe, yes your peanut butter fudge looked incredible! I mentioned that I saw yours right after I finished packaging mine up for my neighbors and felt like I should unwrap them again since mine weren’t nearly as pretty. Yours were so perfect, I loved how evenly your layers and cut pieces were :)

  11. Looks way too delicious! I love biscoff.

  12. I’m not very good with making fudge. So thanks for a tasty and beautiful inspiration :) ela

  13. Oh my gosh, girl, I am sooooo with you! Knee deep in ALL the things! Hang in there, just a few more weeks and it’ll all be a happy memory! This fudge is gorgeous and you are some kind of superwoman for being able to stay on top of it all plus make such a super tasty and special treat! Keep up the great work, mama!

    • Hehe, yes just a a few more weeks :) Aaw thank you so much, you are too sweet Allie! I could say the same to you superwoman mama for all your gorgeous treats that you make and taking care of your family feasts too :) Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend sweetie :) xo

  14. this fudge looks so good! I love cookie butter; so addicting! Smells so good too! love your pic’s!

  15. I don’t have children but I can totally relate to being up to my eyeballs in ingredients, presents and paper! It’s nice to take a break and enjoy something different like looking at your gorgeous pics! Gosh these fudge squares look amazing!

  16. Ok, why didn’t I think of that? I made fudge last week and had the hardest time getting it out of the pan to cut!!! So doing the parchment paper thing next time. These look amazing Kelly! Can you believe I still haven’t tried cookie butter yet? I know… crazy. Pinning this to my Christmas Treats board! Thanks girl!

    • Krista, I’m warning you right now…the cookie butter is very addicting! (No lie.) I bought a jar very recently, thinking I was the only one left on this world that has not tried it. And, I ended up eating the whole jar– by myself!– in less than 48 hours!

    • Thanks so much Krista :) Totally not crazy, I just tried it last year too since it’s not sold everywhere and have been obsessed ever since. Hehe, like Gloria said, it’s super dangerous and addictive so you have to be careful if you do try it :) Thanks so much for the pin and hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend girl :)

  17. Easy recipes are a must when it’s Christmas time! I haven’t had fudge in so long but I love that you can do this one in the microwave. Where do you get the Biscoff? Can’t seem to find it in Winnipeg.

    • Thanks Katy :) We live close by to the US border so we go over often and grocery shop and stock up on things they don’t sell in Canada. I checked Biscoff’s site out and it says they offer it at some Safeway Foods, IGA Stores and London Drugs. I’d also be more than happy to send you some if you e-mail me your addy, it’s way too dangerous for me to keep that many jars in the house hehe ;) Stay warm Katy and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

      • I’ll check Safeway, for some reason I hadn’t thought to check there yet! Maybe Costco as well. Thanks for the offer Kelly I’ll let you know if I have any luck! :)

  18. I need to buy some Biscoff and make this fudge! I can never get enough of fudge this time of the year. Have a great weekend, Kelly!

  19. Oh yum!! This looks so tasty!! Gotta love fudge… perfect for the Christmas season!! :)

  20. I have only just discovered how great fudge is. This looks SO good!

  21. I am so so so so happy you used some biscoff in this fudge! My new favorite addiction. These pieces of fudge are really gorgeous!

    • Aaw, thanks so much Gloria, so glad you like it :) Hehe, yes biscoff can be so addictive and a little bit too dangerous for me to keep that many jars around the house ;) Enjoy the rest of the weekend Gloria :)

  22. Great looking fudge and I love how easy you made it seem to make! I’m swooning and wishing I had some right now!

  23. I’m one of those people who feels they are running low on time. I’m loving everything about this fudge. Biscoff, yes please, Cinnamon chips, pretty please! You got a great gift here and I wish I was on that list of yours! ;) Pinned sweetie. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. :)

    • Aaw, you’re too sweet Anne – you are always welcome on my list :) Same here, I wish I was your neighbor since they always get to try out your wonderful treats :) Thank you so much for the pin sweetie and hope you get caught up with the holiday errands and enjoy the rest of the weekend :) xo

  24. That’s too kind of you Kelly,
    i guess i wan’t share any of it then, to damn delicious for gift……
    Shame on me, but great job fot you my friend!

  25. I loved how you used the cinnamon chips to make a fudge!!!! Just can’t go wrong with cookies, fudge, and cinnamon :)

  26. These are so stinking beautiful and I’m sure delicious. I need to try these cinnamon chips soon.

  27. This fudge looks so flavorful!! I’ve actually never tried Biscoff. Might have to go find a jar to try on this fudge!!

    • Biscoff is really good but highly addictive so be careful if you do find it hehe :) Thanks for stopping by Renee and hope you have a great week!

  28. Your fudge looks wonderful! I love fudge, make it all year around, not just at the holidays!

    I am a woodworker but I also enjoy cooking, baking and grilling, check out my blog sometime.

  29. WOW – What a gorgeous looking fudge and it is so easy to make! Kelly – this is a brilliant gift idea!

  30. Dogcatcher Al says:

    I will tell you what….I made up a batch of those chocolate almond layer goody things and fed them to the pups at the pound and you should have heard the din them dogz raised when they started to get the sugar buzz. They were truly excellent. I suggest taking one and dipping it in a tot of rum – then toss that rum back and stomp like Ho Ha the Bandit…when the burn stops off, grab that Biscoff Fudge and eat it right up!. Keep ‘em coming, Kel!

  31. Kelly, this looks so amazing with those lovely layers! I love Biscoff, and it’s been in my pantry calling my name for a while. I would love to make this, and maybe give some away. Maybe.

    • Thanks Marcie :) Haha, they are so addictive – I had to stop myself after stuffing too many in my mouth and had to force myself to quickly pack them away :)

  32. Wow, this fudge looks so good! I think it just said it wants to be my new best friend in the world of sweets! Great recipe, Kelly. Pinned!

  33. Hi Kelly,

    I miss eating Biscoff. I bought 3 large packs from my recent US trip and they are all gone now… Sadly, we can’t find any Biscoff in Australia… sob sob!!!

    I can imagine that your Biscoff fudge must be very delicious….Sadly, I can only think of them but can’t make and eat any of them :(

    Zoe

    • Hehe, I know, Biscoff is so addictive and I can finish a jar myself really quickly too if I’m not careful. Aaw, sorry to hear that, I haven’t been able to find them in Canada either but we live near the US border so we stock up on goodies like this every time we go over. Thanks for stopping by though and hope you enjoy the rest of the week :)

  34. This fudge looks amazing, Kelly! :) I am such a cookie butter addict too.

    Thank you so much for sharing at Marvelous Mondays this week- Pinned!

    • Thanks so much Carrie – cookie butter is so addictive hehe. Thanks so much for hosting again the party and pinning and enjoy the rest of the week :)

  35. I love this easy fudge and have discovered that cookie butter makes absolutely everything better!! Love your fudge, Kelly, and pinned it!

    • Thanks Paula and so glad to hear you like this :) I love your cookie butter truffles and thanks so much for pinning these :) Hope you enjoy the rest of the week!

  36. I love Biscoff, they are so good on its own or on toast! I’ve seen loads of them in Paris, too yesterday! Have you used them as holiday gifts for friends, neighbors and families yet? :)

    • No, I haven’t tried giving away just the Biscoff jars but that’s a great gift idea since most of my friends and family have never tried it. It’s hard to find in Canada so I usually stock up when we shop in the US :) Hope you have a great week Rika :)

  37. I feel you about being knee deep in cooking, gift-wrapping and toddlers! UGH! lol! This is seriously the prettiest fudge I’ve ever seen! I am totally going to try this! Thanks for sharing at Saturday Night Fever – pinning this now!
