Sweet Weekend - Stroopwafels !

The weekend is here again...Saturday was good, it started with me getting some exercise that started from 9am till 11.30 am and more exercise from 1pm - 2pm. Food came next and the night ended with more food of course. :o). I'm feeling a bit peckish right now and I came across some pics in my archives that didn't help me out one bit but only made me more hungry!

What's this???

Van der Breggen
This tin contains one of my favourite snacks in the whole wide world. I first discovered these when I was in London back in 2000.

Stroopwafels

Presenting to you....Stroopwafels! Stroopwafels originate from Netherlands and each waffle is made from two thin layers of batter with caramel like syrup filling in the middle.When I first bit into one of these stroopwafels back then, I thought that it was going to be all I ever needed in life. It's really one of those "savouring with closed eyes" moments and they are really addictive. Err...but of course, along came other goodies and I realise woman shall not live by stroopwafels alone, hahaha! Anyhow, they still are one of my all time favourite. I have not come across any places selling this in Malaysia, anybody out there knows?

Stroopwafels

Best with a cup of coffee....ahhhhh, one of the best discovery I made in the millennium year (many others with a sweet tooth would love these too.). I haven't had the chance to try out fresh ones made on the spot which are sold on the streets. However, popping one of these into the microwave for a few seconds makes them even yummier! So, I would like to thank you, Pat for getting me these Van der Breggen Stroopwafels from Holland - you really know how to make my day, love yah!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE!

I used to be able to get them easily here in Manchester but not seen any recently. I love them too, but tend to avoid as its so full of sugar! I'll see if I can bring some back this summer.

In Europe, they place the Stroopwafels over the hot cup of beverage to warm it up.
