Speculoos Cups

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"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)."

  1. Place chocolate in top of a double boiler over simmering water; heat, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Mix cookie butter and crushed cookies together in a small bowl to make filling.
  4. 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!
