I have been trying to come up with new combos for my pumpkin recipes. Biscoff Spread seemed like a good idea. When is Biscoff ever a bad idea. We all love it in this household.
I also added a little surprise in the middle. I put a Hershey’s Kiss with Caramel in each cupcake.
I was a little disappointed that the caramel oozed out of the Kisses, but it still made for a yummy center. The cupcakes themselves were so full of flavor. The pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices really played well with the sweetness of the Biscoff. Spicy and sweet, another great match. I am on a roll.
