Homemade Vanilla Flavored Coffee Syrup

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.

Homemade Vanilla Flavored Coffee Syrup


1 and 1/2 cups water
1 and 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 and 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract



In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, gently stir together the water and sugars. Cook until mixture becomes thick and syrupy (approximately 10-15 minutes). Allow to cool and stir in vanilla extract. Fill jar with cooled mixture.

Serve with your favorite coffee drink!

  1. ohhh, I actually thought this was a recipe for "Coffee Syrup" ~ I live in Rhode Island and we love our Coffee Syrup, (used to make coffee flavored sweetened milk, like making chocolate milk, strawberry milk etc), this recipe looks good too, and easy! I enjoy flavored coffee once in a while but usually never put sugar in my coffee ~ just cream :)
    Have a wonderful day!
