If you have ever visited the Netherlands you probably know about Stroopwafels. These delicious traditional Dutch cookies are extremely addictive. To the point that I avoid having them around my place as I can just eat a whole packet without even realising it. It has been a while since I have initially thought of how to incorporate these caramel wafer cookies into a drink. After exploring several options and combinations I came up with this recipe which includes a local stroopwafel liqueur I got my hands on as well as Monin's salted caramel syrup on a rye base. Just be careful with the quantities of stroopwafels you buy for this. You might end up feeling guilty once you eat up the whole packet!
