These puffy two toned Chocolate Biscoff Swirl Cookies have two different cookie doughs rolled into one awesome cookie. Chocolate cookie dough goes to another level when Biscoff is added to it.
You guys need these cookies in your life. Like yesterday.
This cookie will become your new favorite cookie for sure. We went through 3 batches in less than 5 days. Now part of that was me tweaking the recipe to get it just right to share with all of you.
The taste was exactly what I was looking for, but I needed to adjust flour to make them puffier, change baking temps, and play with cooking time.
The third time was the charm because look at those cookies. Soft and puffy with just the right amount of chocolate.
The idea for these cookies came from a picture I saw on Instagram. Someone shared a picture of a jar with chocolate and cookie butter swirled together. All I could think about was how that would make an awesome cookie.
It wasn’t very long before I headed into the kitchen to create a cookie with both flavors in it.
The first batch had the right flavor I was looking for. But when they came out of the oven, the Biscoff part of the cookie was flat. The cookies were very odd looking. It didn’t stop my kids from devouring them though.
I knew that just a little bit more flour would give the cookies the lift that I was looking for. So the next day, round two in the kitchen happened. My hubby made pizza right before I put the cookies in, and I totally forgot to check the oven temperature. #bakerfail
That batch of cookies came out still tasting awesome, but the edges were a little bit more brown than what I wanted. So now we have a batch of flat/puffy cookies and a batch of all puffy but brown edges sitting in the kitchen. My kids were in cookie heaven. They discovered the magic of microwaving cookies for 10 seconds. It turns a cold cookie into that fresh from the oven texture. Pure magic!
A few days later, I just couldn’t get those cookies out of my mind, so back to the kitchen for round 3.
My kids were so excited to hear that I was making another batch of these cookies. All three of them have unanimously voted these the #1 cookie ever!!!
What makes these cookies so special? These cookies have just the right blend of cookie butter with chocolate. Each side compliments the other so well.
The cookie starts as one cookie dough. You will remove 1 cup of the cookie dough and set it aside. This is where a little bit more flour gets added to the cookie dough. If you leave it out, the cookie will be very flat. A little more flour thickens it enough to give it the lift and puffiness that these cookies need. Roll the dough into 20 even balls and refrigerate.
Now take the extra cookie dough that we set aside and add some dark cocoa powder and chocolate chips to it. The extra cocoa powder is enough to thicken this cookie dough, so no extra flour is needed for these. Roll these into 20 even dough balls and refrigerate.
The dough needs to refrigerate for at least 30 minutes if you want thick, puffy cookies. You could bake the dough as soon as you make it, but the cookies will definitely spread more.
Another thing you can use for these cookies is a Silpat. The rubber mat also gives the cookies something to grab onto so they won’t spread as much. Again, it isn’t needed, but I definitely recommend it.
Now for the baking fun. Roll one dough ball of each flavor together. I found that putting the two balls together and slightly flattening them with my palms before rolling worked great. Each cookie will look completely different. Place the two toned balls on a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes.
Do not over bake the cookies!!! They will look underdone when you remove the pan, but that is totally normal. Leave them on the baking sheet for at least 2 minutes before moving to a piece of parchment paper on your counter. The cookies will still continue to bake while they sit on the cookies sheets for that extra time.
Now resist the urge to dive smash a cookie into your mouth for at least a few more minutes. Why? Because hot chocolate chips and cookie dough will burn your taste buds right off. Listen to me…I know!
One more thing to remember. These cookies are wonderful warmed up the next day. Pop in the microwave for about 10 seconds and the fresh from the oven texture comes right back. This makes them divine!!!
