Happy National Chocolate Wafer Day! These crispy, sweet snacks are an American favorite. With their waffle surface pattern and thin layers, they can often be found accompanied with ice cream or cooked into other baked goods.
Variations of chocolate wafers can also be found around the world. Did you know that in Egypt, there are special kinds of wafers called "freska" that are only sold on the beach in the summertime?
Elsewhere in the world, chocolate wafers are enjoyed as a key ingredient in cookies, in ice cream sandwiches and countless other recipes. National Chocolate Wafer Day is truly a global affair!
No matter where or how you are eating your wafers, these delicious treats are truly worth celebrating!
