Chocolate Waffles with Speculoos Cream

Chocolate Waffles with Speculoos Cream

I made these chocolate waffles when I was going through my speculoos phase. I’m not really over it yet. I’ve been using it instead of peanut butter in a lot of recipes lately. It’s just so good! I like to eat it with a spoon straight from the jar. The smooth, spicy creaminess of the speculoos goes very well with the chocolate waffles.

Chocolate Waffles with Speculoos Cream

These were the first sticks I made with my waffle maker and they didn’t quite crisp up. I should have left them in a bit longer.  Popped in the toaster the next morning they still tasted good.

Speculoos Cream

2/3 cup Speculoos spread

1/4 cup whole milk

3 tbs sugar

1 cup whipping cream

Waffle Batter

1/2 cup chocolate chips

4 tbs unsalted butter

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups whole milk

2 tsp vanilla

1 3/4 cup plain flour

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tbs baking powder

1/2 tsp salt


  1. Place the chocolate chips and butter in a double boiler and stir until melted. Let cool for a few minutes.
  2. Make the cream. In a small saucepan cook the speculoos, milk and sugar until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl whip the cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold in the cooled speculoos mixture. Refrigerate until the waffles are ready.
  4. Make the waffle batter. In a medium bowl whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla and then stir into the chocolate mixture.
  5. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the chocolate mixture. Whisk until smooth.
  6. Pour into a preheated waffle maker and cook until crisp. Serve with the cold speculoos cream.


Speculoos spread can be replaced with creamy peanut butter.
