Daelmans Stroopwafles

By Lynda Wheatley | Jan. 26, 2019

Had enough of that whole “eat healthy” resolution yet, Slim? Your timing couldn’t be better. We just got turned on to the Netherlands’ way of doing coffee, and it has completely reframed our impression of what constitutes a breakfast of champions. All you need to go Dutch: a piping hot cup of coffee and a Daelmans stroopwafle — essentially, two wafer thin, crispy-sweet waffle cookies glued together by a sticky, gooey, and utterly delicious syrup (in our case, caramel cinnamon and bourbon-vanilla). Let the cookie sit atop your hot coffee about two minutes, until the caramel gets oooey-gooey melty and marvelous, and then eat, sip and welcome back your long-lost friend, the blood-sugar spike. If loving these is wrong, we don’t want to be right. $3.99 for a box of eight waffles. Find them at your local Tom’s Markets, Target, or www.amazon.com.
