Flavored coffee syrup......great for your coffee.....not so great for your pocket.
My husband and I enjoy flavored syrups, but I don't buy them very often because I find them expensive.
Since I make a lot of store bought products at home, I figured that flavored syrup couldn't be that hard either, so I went in search of a recipe online.
I found a few, but decided to give Paula Deen's recipe a try. Really easy to make and I love the dark color of the syrup. Tried it in a cup of coffee this afternoon, and loved it.
I didn't follow her recipe exactly, I adapted it to my needs, which included cutting it in half and it still made quite a bit, enough to fill an empty Torani syrup bottle and a small little mason jar.
Now I know I can make it at home and not worry about spending so much money at the grocery store.
