Last week on this blog, my colleague Denise wrote about a very dramatic-looking Devil’s Food Cake. It was iced with a chocolate ganache flavored with a Belgian cookie spread, which Cenk Sönmezsoy, the cake’s creator, learned about in this post on David Lebovitz’s blog. That got my attention. What is this stuff of which they speak? I had to know, so I ordered some.

Biscoff spread (called Speculoos à Tartiner in France) looks exactly like peanut butter, but it tastes like a spice cookie. The texture is completely smooth and creamy. The first taste is surprising, and then after that, it dawns on you how weirdly delicious and potentially addictive it is.

You have to order two jars at a time, so now’s a good time to try it. You can keep one jar for yourself, and wrap the other one up as a gift for the foodie on your Christmas shopping list.

    I first tried this from the Wafels & Dinges truck in NYC. Had to order some and it went way too fast. Forget putting it on bread: best on a spoon right from jar.
