This recipe was created when my four-year-old daughter asked to make peanut butter cups and I had to tell her we were out of peanut butter. She said, That's ok, let's just use speculoos spread! Brilliant. Speculoos cookies are a traditional cookie common here in Belgium, as well as Holland and Germany. You can find them in America with a bit of searching. Trader Joe's® and Amazon sell both speculoos cookies and spread (which they call cookie butter).

  • Scoop 1 1/2 teaspoon melted chocolate into 12 silicone or paper cupcake liners; spread evenly around the bottom and partway up the sides with a spoon. Chill until set, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Mix cookie butter and crushed cookies together in a small bowl to make filling.

  • Drop teaspoonfuls of the filling over the chilled chocolate. Cover with remaining melted chocolate, smoothing the tops with a spoon. Chill until set, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you like things to have a bit of crunch, do not crush the cookies as finely as you might otherwise.

You can use whatever chocolate is your personal favorite!

I made these for a party and everyone loved them. I made both dark chocolate and milk chocolate and dark is definitely the way to go it gives just a bit more balance which suprised me since I usually dont like dark chocolate at all. The milk chocolate cups came out very sweet. I may try a semi sweet chocolate next time but for now I am pleased Read More

We are huge fans of cookie butter so we loved this recipe! The crushed up cookies gave the cookie butter a wonderful crunch! I would think you could also buy the crunchy cookie butter and omit adding the cookies to the smooth. Don t sub out the dark chocolate because it worked perfectly with the cookie butter. Read More

You can buy this in the USA and other places as well. They call the cookies Biscoff it is not unique to Europe at all and is very misleading. Other than that I added slightly less cookie for what was called for in the recipe. Read More
