The time for relaxing with friends and families during the holidays is upon us. It’s also the time for sampling the latest Christmas cookie or trying one that is new to you.
The stroopwafel is a Christmas cookie with a long tradition in its native Netherlands. For centuries, Dutch families have gathered around the holiday table with stroopwafels and a cup of hot cocoa or coffee.
Yet in the United States, this treat is rarer and, some would say, more precious. There are just so many ways that a stroopwafel can be part of holiday traditions among family and friends.
To handle your holidays with style, Christmas cookie boxes can be ordered in advance. 3Bros fresh-baked stroopwafels can be refrigerated for up to a week or frozen if the holidays are still weeks away. Yet they will taste fresh and inviting when warmed the traditional way on top of your favorite hot beverage.
Christmas cookie boxes of stroopwafels make a good gift. Whether the recipient already loves them or will be introduced to them for the first time, stroopwafels are both scrumptious and useful. These treats are welcome at every meal and for any snack time. 3Bros holiday gift boxes are festive and colorful.
When family or friends all gather in the same household, breakfast can become a challenge. Stroopwafels add to the festivities without adding any special effort on the part of the host. Christmas cookies boxes can provide enough treats to cover every holiday breakfast and then some.
These Christmas cookies can stand alone as a breakfast novelty. Alongside favorites such as eggs and bacon or a sausage-cheese casserole, this round waffle-like cookie balances the salty with the sweet.
Stroopwafels add to the feeling that these are special days since the treats are still rare in the U.S. It’s the sort of unique food choice that we seek over the holidays.
Unlike that other breakfast favorite, donuts, it isn’t a high-fat, high-calorie food. Eating a few stroopwafels won’t weigh you down. There will be plenty of room for that special lunch and dinner ahead.
When lunch is over, everyone may go their separate ways to play with new games and toys. It will be easy to call them back together again for a coffee hour with a special holiday snack.
This is a snack that fits the feeling that the holidays are something to be savored. The simple way of heating the stroopwafel atop your own hot drink is something that children love. That feeling of discovery is keen when they bite into the cookie only to discover that the insides are now gooey.
Perhaps because it is lighter than many deserts or because of the fun of heating it atop your drink, a stroopwafel is a natural for nighttime activities. It is a fun last treat before bedtime for little ones who are excited about what the holidays will bring.
Santa won’t mind partaking in a stroopwafel when he stops by to drop off the kids’ presents. After all, this is one Christmas cookie that appeals to adults as much as the kids. For something extra special, milk chocolate-dipped varieties are available.
If you want this delicious waffle-like cookie, you have two choices. One is the prepackaged kind that comes from overseas. The other is to get it fresh from a bakery that delivers across the United States. That’s 3Bros, run by a Dutch father with his American wife and three sons.
An order placed online only takes a minute, and then the stroopwafels are baked and sent your way. Why not order some today?
