Speculoos is a type of thin spiced biscuits, traditionally baked for St Nicholas’ Day in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. I have been obsessed with them long before they were on sale in UK. I used to “smuggle” the biscuits and the Speculoos cream to London from Brussels! When I came across a recipe idea to make easy chocolate truffles with a cookie and cream cheese filling (thank you Pinterest!), I immediately thought about using Speculoos.

Speculoos truffles taste very much like the Speculoos Cake Pops I made a few years ago, although this new recipe is much easier. What I love about it, is that it requires only three ingredients and no baking. Whenever you need a simple and quick dessert, this is your go-to recipe!

You can make truffles using cream cheese with any biscuit crumble of your choice and any type of chocolate. I made a white chocolate shell, but you can use milk or dark chocolate if you like. Whichever flavour you go for, these truffles are the perfect treats to gift to your friends and family during the holiday season.

Ingredients

Yield around 20 truffles.

  • 150g cream cheese
  • 300g speculoos biscuits
  • 200g white chocolate

Preparation

Place the speculoos biscuits in a food processor and pulse too fine crumbs (alternately place the biscuits in a large resealable bag, seal bag and crush with a rolling pin until finely crushed). Pour the crushed biscuits into the bowl of a stand mixer along with cream cheese and mix on low speed until well combined. Scoop the mixture out, about one tablespoon at a time, and form 1-inch balls. Place them on a plate lined with baking paper and freeze for at least 20-30 minutes. It’s very important that the cake balls are cold to achieve a smooth chocolate shell.

Melt the chocolate in a bainmarie or in the microwave. Remove the truffles from freezer and dip in melted chocolate. I used toothsticks to lift and dip the truffles.

Place the truffles on clean baking paper and immediately sprinkle the top with sprinkles or crushed speculoos biscuits. You could also drizzle dark chocolate on the top. Store the truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days.

    That looks really simple and delicious, just how I love recipes! I love speculoos, it’s one of my favorite “flavours”. Have you tried Haagen Dazs’ Speculoos ice cream? Lovely!

    • Yes, I have tried it! But even better is homemade speculoos ice cream (with custard). I made it a few summers ago! :)

    Oh my gosh, this is brilliant. Speculoos is one of my favorite flavors as well! I recently made gingerbread truffles, and these seem like they’d be right up my alley. Where did you get the sprinkles for your truffles? I really love that shade!

    • The sprinkles are from Waitrose supermarket. Sorry for the late reply!

  • These were so good! I didn’t catch the cream cheese when I tried it last but might have to try making it myself. Thanks for the tasters!
