Biscoff Cookie Bark

I wanted to make something easy, but yummy, to usher in the new year and remembered Trisha Yearwood's "Mama'a Sweet and Saltines"  recipe from last year.

I planned on using graham crackers instead of saltines, but when I went to my pantry there were no graham crackers to be found:( I peeked in further and spotted some Biscoff cookies:)  They would be a perfect substitute, maybe even better!

I was right!

I only had one package of cookies, so cut the recipe in half. It comes together in a snap and is dangerously delicious!  I just may have had to hide it from my husband:)

What could be better!?!  Biscoff cookies covered in a melted butter~brown sugar mixture(toffee-like), and a generous layer of melted choclate to top it off. Sprinkle with a colorful dose of confetti sprikles and you're ready to ring in the new year! 

Biscoff Bark
(Mama's Sweet and Saltines from Trisha Yearwood-adapted)

Yields: 10 servings

8.8 oz. package of Biscoff cookies (I had about 4 left over to munch on)
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup light-brown sugar
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
multi-colored confetti sprinkles 1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a large rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil and the cookies (I sectioned off half of a large jelly roll pan to accomodate only one pkg. of cookies).

2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar together and bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over cookies, covering them evenly. Put cookie sheet into oven and watch closely. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until just bubbly.

3. Remove from oven and pour chocolate chips over cookies. When chips begin to melt, spread them over ccookies with a knife. Transfer pan to freezer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until completely cold. The chocolate-covered cookies will form a solid sheet; break into pieces and store in an airtight container.


Happy New Year!!!


  1. Sue! I am not even kidding you that I made my own version of Biscoff Bark for a family gathering this weekend! We are sugar sisters!! ;)

  2. This is the second time this week I've see biscoff biscuits....but what the heck are they?? I've never seen them before! Hard to believe there is a cookie out there I haven't tried!
    I think I need to run to the store.
    (cause these look yummy and I need to try them!)

  3. This looks incredible. I love anything with toffee-like goodness. I have yet to try biscoff cookies but I hear Trader Joes has a similar cookie. I have a new recipe just up and a great giveaway so be sure to visit me again this week :)

  4. This is a delicious looking bark! If Trisha Yearwood saw it she just may decide that it's just as good (if not better) that Mama's Sweet and Saltines!

    Happy New Year Sue ~ wishing all the best for you and your family throughout 2012

  5. oh GOSH this looks so good. Makes me think of the oh so yummy biscoff cookie from delta airlines that everyone just loses their mind over when you want a cookie or pretzels...Seriously, do you have to even ask..COOKIE! Happy New YEar to you, Sue, you have been such a huge source of smiles here at my house if you only knew!

  21. This does look delicious! It just so happens I have just discovered these lovely biscoff cookies too. Can't wait to try this.

    I want the whole tray! I wish I could buy Biscoff in my supermarket...
    they don't sell it I would have to order online.
    It's probably better for my hips that they don't :)
