I thought they would be Belgian. Seems they are not. Still stroopwafels stay one of my favorite sweets. Simply delicious. Just crunchy enough, sweet enough, caramel, a perfect combination. If only they would not be such calorie filled bombs!And because I am on the subject of this Dutch delicacy, did anyone try to make stroopwafels at home? Successfully? If so I’d love to have a fool proof recipe. Dank u.

    oh yes, we used to eat so many of these with our Dutch friends living with us in Boston. You bring back fun memories of them falling in our tea (because do you know that you have to place them on top of your warm cup of tea or coffee so that the caramel melts a little?)

    rosa i will let you know.
    trini, they are not as doughy as waffles.
    daelmans, loved the video.
    bea, i know the coffee trick. have never seen them served like that in Holland though (perhaps been to the wrong places!).

  • I always stock up at Schiphol. Starbucks in the UK sell them at obscene prices, I don’t know if this extends to North America.

    My absolute favorite cookies. I love eating them fresh at the markets in the Netherlands (you can smell them a mile away!). And I really like the ubiquitous Albert Heijn (Dutch supermarket) version–so cheap and really pretty good.

  • M, i found them fresh very heavy (but delicious). love the AH version as well a lot (where do you think the storage box came from?)

  • angela

    Last time I was at Costco (Washington state) I saw these little lovers. You know how they are always changing products so I suggest checking ASAP. This was as of December, 2008.
