Put an international twist on s’mores this summer with Belgian S’mores!  Pair Belgian Speculoos cookies with Belgian chocolate and a toasted marshmallow for a s’more you’ll never forget.


Welcome to the Multicultural Kids Blogs “World Cup for Kids!”  Growing Up Gabel is the official home of Belgium for the series.

Today is the first match for Belgium in the World Cup as they take on Algeria.   I thought we’d start our series with a Belgian twist on an American classic – the s’more.

World Cup For Kids


Belgian S’mores Recipe

Chocolate is a cornerstone of s’mores and Belgium is famous for it’s chocolate.  There are over 2,000 chocolatiers located in Belgium.

By law, chocolate made in Belgium may not possess less than 35% pure cocoa.  Belgian chocolate is also known to be very fine and smooth in texture.


It isn’t hard to find Belgian chocolate in the States. I was able to find several different varieties at Trader Joe’s.

I of course grabbed the largest bar of dark chocolate I could find, but the chocolate is a tad thick for s’mores.  So go for the smaller bars and just buy lots of them.


In place of the traditional graham cracker, I used Speculoos, a Belgian spiced cookie.   If you aren’t near a Trader Joe’s, Speculoos remind me of the windmill cookies I ate as a kid at about every classroom party we had.  Those would definitely work and make bigger s’mores.

Speculoos are also the foundation of Biscoff, the famous cookie butter which is also a Belgian invention.

You know what to do once you have your Belgian chocolate and Speculoos cookies.  I always set up  the cookies and chocolate first so they are ready for the perfectly puffed and roasted marshmallows.

We have a major debate in our family over whether marshmallows should be burned or not.  I opt for the not, but sometimes, it happens.   Put the marshmallow right on top of that huge chunk of Belgian chocolate.

Take second Speculoos cookie and mush it all together.  I usually like the chocolate to melt a little, but these chunks weren’t going anywhere so we just ate them as such and they were so delicious!

Belgian style s’mores are definitely a fun way to celebrate a World Cup victory (we hope)!

    Holy cow! This is brilliant! I’m madly in love with speculoos cookies and well s’mores are pretty awesome, combine the two and that sounds amazing. Good call on the Belgian chocolate–American chocolate tends to be overly sweet and artificial for my taste.
