Speculoos Barks

6 Dec 2016


One of Belgium's favourite biscuits in a delicious chocolate bark.


Speculoos were traditionally made for special occasions, including weddings, births, and to celebrate St. Nicholas’ Fest on December 6th. Belgium’s talented bakers would decorate their speculoos in elaborately carved patterns. The
original recipe remains and makes the speculoos an instant favourite in Europe’s famous cafés. Speculoos continues to hold a lofty position in Belgian culture – every fifth cookie enjoyed in Belgium is a Speculoos.
