We are a Stroopwafel lovin' household.
Long before any of us had been to the
Netherlands we were all hooked on them.
And no one more so than Brennan, any
time we make a Trader Joe's run, he always
On my first visit to Amsterdam I saw
this guy selling stroopwafels at the
Albert Cuyp Market.
Why didn't I try one of the chocolate
dipped ones? I'm never hungry when
I come upon these great things...
Stroopwafels are two very thin waffles
with a syrupy caramel sandwiched
between them. The best way to eat
them is to place the large ones on top
of a cup of a hot beverage. This melts
the caramel and makes one waffle soft
while the other is still crisp. Num!
When I was in Amsterdam a few weeks
ago I noticed many cute little stroopwafel
shops. When I was in the big supermarket
behind the palace, I noticed a group of Asian
girls filling their baskets with these little bags
of the mini stroopwafels. I guessed they were
buying them as gifts to take home. So, I brought
a bag home for Brennan.
