But first, let us tell you a little more about the history of StroopWafels
Stroopwafels are a traditional Dutch sweet treat that originated in the Netherlands. They are made up of two thin waffles that have a layer of caramel syrup in between. The waffles themselves are crispy and lightly sweetened, while the syrup is thick and gooey, with a rich caramel flavor.
Historically, stroopwafels dates back to the late 18th century in the Dutch town of Gouda. It is said that a baker there came up with the idea of sandwiching leftover cookie crumbs and syrup between two thin waffles, creating the first stroopwafel. Since then, stroopwafels have become a beloved Dutch treat, with numerous bakeries and vendors specializing in their production and sale.
There are various ways to savor stroopwafels, as they can make for a delectable snack on their own or paired with coffee or tea. The Waffle Mill team suggests 6 ways to relish their stroopwafels:
1. The traditional method
The traditional way to eat the stroopwafel is to place it on top of a cup of hot coffee, tea or chocolate. This steam heats up the waffle and slightly softens the syrup making the waffle soft on one side and slightly crispy on the other.
2. Heat it up
Stroopwafels are best enjoyed warm. To heat them up, you can place them in the microwave for a few seconds. This will help soften the caramel syrup in the center and make them even more delicious.
3. Dip Them In Chocolate
If you’re feeling indulgent, you can dip your stroopwafels in melted chocolate. Simply melt some chocolate in a bowl over a pot of boiling water and dip your stroopwafels in it. This will add an extra layer of richness and decadence to your snack.
4. Pair Them With Ice Cream
Stroopwafels make a great pairing with ice cream. Simply crumble them up and sprinkle them over your favorite flavor of ice cream. The combination of the crunchy waffles and the creamy ice cream is a match made in heaven.
5. Spread Them With Nutella
If you’re a fan of Nutella, you can spread it over your stroopwafels for an extra layer of sweetness. Simply spread a generous amount of Nutella on one half of the stroopwafel, and then place the other half on top.
6. Make A Sandwich
For a more substantial snack, you can make a stroopwafel sandwich. Simply place your favorite filling between two stroopwafels. Some great fillings include whipped cream, peanut butter, or sliced bananas.
