It all started when a homesick Amsterdam native, “Rip,” whipped up a traditional Dutch waffle cookie in his dorm room to bring a taste of his country stateside. Not surprisingly, his roommates quickly spread the word about these delectable coaster-size treats filled with gooey goodness like caramel and chocolate. And thus, Rip van Wafels was born.
Your mission: Put the cookie atop a steaming cup of coffee until it gets all warm and melty. Then dip it in your hot beverage as you drink. Rip Van Wafels are sold at Whole Foods, Peet's Coffee and also on the website. You can thank us later.
