Speculoos Spices

Print Friendly and PDF

The Dutch celebrate Sinterklaas on the evening of 5th December. This day has it's own set of sweets like the chocolate letters, kruidnootjes (speculoos biscuits/Biscoff biscuits) and pepernootjes. The ingredient that is nearly always present in these traditional sweets is speculoos. In the Netherlands you can buy the speculoos spices however I haven't yet found these spices in Melbourne. So to savour these typical Sinterklaas biscuits I prepared the spice mix myself.

  • a pinch of ground anise seeds
  • a pinch of grated nutmeg

  2. Use in any Sinterklaas recipes!
