I love a good cookie – no denying that. So naturally, the idea of taking cookies and blending them into a smooth, creamy, peanut-butter like spread is pure GENIUS in my mind. This particular genius idea is called Biscoff, folks. And it is literally made of blended up cookies – cinnamon-y, caramelized Biscoff cookies.
Biscoff is kind of a new thing in the food world; it’s like peanut butter’s older and more sophisticated cousin. I mean, it’s made in Belgium, which is totally worldly and sophisticated, right?! I’ve seen Biscoff popping up more and more in recipes these days, but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I actually got my hands on a jar to try it for myself. The first bite was like dipping into a bowl of the creamiest-ever gingerbread cookie dough… delicious and decadent.
As such, I just decided to go ahead and make it more decadent by combining it with marshmallows, graham crackers, and a soft and buttery loaf of bread to make some intense Biscoff S’mores Stuffed French Toast. Oh yes, you read that right. ;) It’s an all-out take on French Toast that’s rich and sweet but also craaaazy good – loaded with Biscoff and marshmallows on the inside, and crusted with cinnamon-y graham crackers on the outside.
If you already have some Biscoff in your pantry, you’re gonna want to pull it out and cook up some of this french toast ASAP. And if you don’t have any Biscoff around, can you fix that? Please? Whether you end up baking with it, slathering it on toast, or eating spoonfuls of it from the jar (whoops!), the point is you WILL be diggin’ in – no doubt. Besides, it just happens to be all-natural, vegan, nut-free, and trans fat and cholesterol-free, so really, why not?
I think it’s time to get that warm, custardy, Biscoff-smothered French Toast cooking, am I right?

Biscoff S’mores Stuffed French Toast
This graham cracker-crusted French Toast oozing with cinnamon-y Biscoff and mini marshmallows is an indulgent treat!
- Cook Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 2 french toast sandwiches 1x
- 3/4 ounce (1/4 cup) hand-crushed graham cracker crumbs*
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch of cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 4 thick slices soft white bread (brioche or challah, e.g.)
- 1 tablespoon butter, for cooking
Biscoff and Marshmallow Filling:
- 3 5/8 ounces (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons) Creamy Biscoff Spread
- 40 mini marshmallows
- Place graham cracker crumbs in/on a small dish that can fit a slice of bread (like a rectangular container or plate). Spread out the crumbs in a flat layer.
- In another small and shallow rectangular container, whisk together the egg, cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until smooth.
- Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons Biscoff on each slice of bread. Divide the 40 marshmallows between two of the slices (20 per sandwich). Assemble sandwiches.
- Heat a small skillet over medium heat with 1/2 tablespoon butter. Dunk one sandwich in the egg mixture for 30 seconds per side, gently pressing into the liquid so it seeps up through the bread. Dip each side in graham cracker crumbs to coat.
- Place assembled french toast on warm skillet and cook for a few minutes per side, until golden as desired, using a flat spatula to flip the french toast. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for a minute or two longer to ensure that french toast is warm all the way through to the center. Repeat with remaining french toast sandwich and serve immediately.
*Crush the graham cracker crumbs by hand so you have a mixture of finer and coarser pieces.
Be careful when handling the french toast sandwiches, since a good, soft white bread will also be quite fragile.
