We first cook our proprietary syrup. It has the taste & sweetness of caramel but with a fraction of the sugar.
Our wafel dough is then slowly mixed using an old European technique until it has just the right consistency. We only use simple & natural ingredients, avoiding preservatives and anything artificial.
The dough is then portioned and pressed thin with the force of a heavy solid metal wafel iron and baked at a glowing hot 400F.
When golden brown, we slice the wafel in half lengthwise. Doing this helps us create the uniquely delicate crispy outer texture.
Next, we drop a dollop of hot caramel on the bottom half to form an even circular spread.
We then carefully place the top half on the bottom half and gently press them together. That way, the caramel spreads to the edges of the wafels and you get a delicate, crispy, chewy texture in every bite.
We cool each completed Rip Van Wafel for 30 minutes to make sure the caramel and the wafel hold together.
We place the the finished wafel into our distinctive package.
We leave the last step to you and hope you love savoring your Rip Van wafel as much we loved making them!
