In our home, we love to eat brownies. What’s more delicious than chocolatey brownies? Adding in different toppings, such as the Fudge Coated Salted Caramel Wafers from Voortman Bakery! Not only are these fudge coated wafers yummy to eat on their own, but they’re also great for adding in recipes.

Thanks to Voortman Bakery, we received the Fudge Coated Salted Caramel Wafers. These treats are the perfect combination of chocolate, salted caramel flavoring and wafers! They are super delicious – both in the brownie recipe and on their own!

Thanks to our working partnership with Voortman Bakery, we’ve had the opportunity to try lots of different flavors and I can’t wait to see what we receive next! At Voortman Bakery, they believe in real ingredients. Simple, real ingredients are what make their cookies so remarkably delicious. Their wafers and cookies have no artificial colors or flavors AND no high-fructose corn syrup.

At Voortman Bakery, they also believe in the art of baking. Plus, their bakers love to bake! From creating new and exciting flavor combinations to constantly reviewing their recipes, their bakers are real cookie connoisseurs! They believe that cookies should taste delicious. I love that Voortman Bakery is committed to giving uncompromising quality, flavor, and simply better cookies to their customers. At Voortman Bakery, they believe that REAL bakes better.

History of Voortman Bakery

I enjoy learning about the history behind the brands that I love and was eager to know more about Voortman Bakery! Voortman Cookies began in 1951 when two young Dutch brothers, William and Harry Voortman, opened their first bakery in Hamilton, Ontario. It took five years of dedicated baking and hard work before a Canadian grocery chain agreed to give Voortman Cookies shelf space in their stores!

Even though their name has changed, their commitment to using simple, real ingredients has not. At Voortman Bakeryquality and taste has always been and always will be their top priority. From their classic Windmill cookies to their new Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, they’re constantly reinventing what delicious tastes like!

What You Need:

  • Voortman Bakery Fudge Coated Salted Caramel Wafers
  • Brownie mix
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Spray for 9×13 baking pan
  • Pastel colored sprinkles



1 – Preheat the oven to 325° F. Prepare the brownies according to the brownie mix box. Our Family Size brownie mix (for the 9×13 pan) had us add 2/3 cup vegetable oil, 1/4 cup water and 2 beaten eggs. Before pouring into the pan, be sure to spray non-stick cooking spray. I like to use the Wilton spray that has the combination of oil and flour, but either spray works.
