Speculoos Spice Mix Gifting and Storing

You can put it in a jar and then give them an antique mold for gifting! And then the gift recipient can put it in *anything* you’d put pumpkin spice mix in! It is just delightful on top of oatmeal, or on top of apples with a little bit of peanut butter…yes. Ooooh, in pumpkin pie! The world is your Speculoos oyster!

What a weird word, right? There are rumors it derives from the Latin word “speculum” which means mirror and could refer to the stamp used to decorate speculaas. “Speculoos” is the Belgian spelling, in comparison to the Dutch “speculaas” and apparently spices were more expensive to import to Beligium so there are less spices in that mixture.
