We love big, thick, gooey brownies. This recipe delivers that and more, with a spicy, addictive finish and crispy crunchy Biscoff cookies in each bite. Best of all, you can make this in 1 hour flat, so you can go from craving to indulging in decadent scratch brownies in the time it takes to watch a show on Netflix.


          • Preheat oven to 325F.
          • Rub butter across bottom and sides of baking dish, making sure to evenly coat the entire surface.
          • In a large bowl, whisk together Spicy Chocolate Cinnamon Cane Sugar, Gingerbread Cane Sugar, powdered sugar, California Sea Salt, and flour.
          • In a food processor, pulse about 25 of the Biscoff cookies several times, until crumbly but not a paste, and add to the bowl, again whisking to combine.
          • In a medium bowl, beat together canola oil, water, and eggs,
          • Pour into dry mixture, and stir together with wooden spoon for several minutes until fully incorporated.
          • Spoon mixture into your baking dish, and use the spoon to smooth the surface.
          • Break remaining Biscoff cookies into large chunks, and press down slightly onto the top of the brownie mix.
          • Pop in the oven and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
          • Allow to cool for 30 minutes.
          • Cut out some generous squares, serve with a big 'ol scoop of French vanilla ice cream, and devour.
