Double Dipped Stroopwafels (Syrup Waffles)

 I couldn't think of a better way to use an old egg carton then to have it hold yummy delicious double dipped stroopwafels. The idea is not really so new. Just a few months ago I saw Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen do the same thing with graham crackers for a quick holiday treat.

The stroopwafel is not really equavalent to a graham cracker though... it is so much better. It's really one of the best cookies to come out of the Netherlands. You can find them everywhere here. Every grocery store carries them in many different price ranges. And there is a difference. That "E" brand that is really cheap - really sucks. The brand from the Lidl is a great price and one of the best tasting ones I've found. They have them made with real butter or with glucose-syrup. I personally like the real butter caramel flavored ones. Yum-yum.

A stroopwafel is simply translated as syrup waffle. It's a thin waffle like cookie with syrup in the middle... much better than an Oreo... okay, guess it depends what you're in the mood for.


Oh my, just look at those layers - this really was the best stroop wafel I ever had in my entire life. I ate two whole cookies all to myself... then I gave the rest away... geez, I'm so nice ;)


Want to know how I did it? Easy peasy, just melt your favorite chocolate in a bowl. I used about 200 grams dark chocolate and a bit less for the white chocolate. I melted it the microwave method way - after 30 second intervals stir - done within 1 minute. Let cool slightly then dip halfway up the cookie. Let dry before you apply the second dipping/drizzle of chocolate - then top off with candy sprinkles, chopped nuts, Speculoos hagel - wish I would have used that!
Let stand upright so that the chocolate doesn't stick to the surface - that's why I used the egg carton. Let stand overnight or many many hours before you stack them side by side. Better yet, put some parchment paper between each cookie, just to be on the safe side.

This one looks like an ice cream cone turned on it's side.

I've heard that they sell stroopwafels at Wal*mart and Costco... so if they are new to you - I highly recommend picking some up. I promise that you will not be disappointed.

I also really like to break them up and eat them with chocolate pudding and whipped cream. Just Heavenly - really was my most favorite treat during my last pregnancy :)

Waffle cookies with syrup inside sound amazing! Dipping them in chocolate would be even better. I wonder if I can find stroopwafels anywhere in the states...

I studied in Maastricht and lived on these! They're still hard to find in the U.S. and I miss them terribly! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
