Toffee waffles are a subject of gastronomical devotion in the Netherlands, where they are called stroopwafels (“strope-vafels”). Not to be confused with their cousin, the Belgian waffle, stroopwafels are thin, delicate waffles, split in half and fill with creamy caramel. They have a rich, buttery flavor with just a hint of cinnamon.
When served the traditional way—atop a mug of steaming hot coffee or tea— the waffle’s caramel center becomes delectably soft, while your beverage stays piping hot. A toffee waffle is more than just a little something with your drink. A toffee waffle means a commitment, for just a few moments, to pause. A koffiepauze with a toffee waffle, is well worth the time.
