Stroopwafels and brownies are two of the most beloved desserts in the world. So why not combine them for an irresistibly delicious dessert? In this blog, we share a delicious recipe for stroopwafel brownies that is guaranteed to be a hit on any occasion.
Brownies are a typical American dessert first made in the late 19th century. However, the origins of brownies are not entirely clear. Some claim the dessert was first made in Boston in the 1890s, while others say it was invented in Chicago in 1893 during the World’s Columbian Exposition.
Stroopwafels, on the other hand, are a typically Dutch dessert. The origins of stroopwafels date back to the late 18th century in Gouda, a town in South Holland. Bakers used leftover dough to bake thin waffles and added syrup as a sweetener. At the time, stroopwafels were eaten mainly during special holidays, but over time they became increasingly popular and are now one of the most beloved sweets in the Netherlands and abroad.
