How to store and preserve the freshness of stroopwafels

Dutch stroopwafels, with their sweet caramel centers and crisp waffle exteriors, are a delight to enjoy at any time. To ensure that you savor the best possible flavor and texture, it’s important to know how to store and preserve them properly. At Melly’s Stroopwafels, our stroopwafels are made with fresh, high-quality ingredients, including real butter, which means they require a bit more care than store-bought varieties. Here are some tips to keep your Melly’s stroopwafels fresh and delicious for as long as possible.

Keep them cool

The best way to store Melly’s Stroopwafels is in the refrigerator. The cool environment helps preserve the freshness and flavor of the real butter and other high-quality ingredients we use. When stored in the fridge, our stroopwafels can stay fresh for up to six weeks. Make sure to keep them in an airtight container to prevent them from absorbing any other odors from the refrigerator.

Room temperature storage

If you prefer to keep your stroopwafels at room temperature, they will stay fresh for about four weeks. However, it’s important to store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. an airtight container or sealed bag is essential to maintain their crispness and prevent them from becoming stale.

Bringing to room temperature

For the best eating experience, we recommend bringing your refrigerated stroopwafels to room temperature before enjoying them. Take them out of the fridge and let them sit for about 30 minutes. This will allow the caramel center to soften and the waffle to regain its optimal texture. You can also warm them slightly by placing them on top of a hot cup of coffee or tea for a few minutes, which will make them perfectly gooey and aromatic.

Freezing stroopwafels

If you need to store your stroopwafels for a longer period, freezing is an option. Place them in a freezer-safe airtight container or bag to protect them from freezer burn. Stroopwafels can be frozen for up to three months. When you’re ready to enjoy them, let them thaw at room temperature for a few hours. For an even better experience, warm them briefly in the microwave or oven to restore their delicious, fresh-baked quality.
