Original Pin Here but it doesn't link to the original baker/blogger so if you want to check out the photos and step by step, go here:

I kid you not, I am eating one of these cupcakes as I write this blogpost.  They are delicious.  If you're a fan of Biscoff spread or cookies, then you'll be a fan of Spekuloos Spread.  My friend recently went to NY and brought me back some Wafels and Dinges Spekuloos spread.  Normally you would have some of the spread on top of waffles but I decided to look for a recipe to make them into cupcakes!  I ended up making them for my brother for his birthday rather quickly so I didn't stop to do step by step photos.  

However, I believe Bree did a fantastic job of the step by step process and this was too good not to share.  This is the perfect fall cupcake to have at your Halloween parties so be sure to check it out! Don't have Spekuloo? Use biscoff spread like they did in the original recipe. Also try checking at Trader Joes in your area if you have one. 

*Edit* Adding the recipe below for conveinence.
