    Annas_Mom_Erin's Note:

    easy and cheaper than buying it and definitely cheaper than buying a coffee from starbucks! From the joy of cooking Edit: I would like to point out that this recipe comes from The Joy of Cooking and is, therefore, not a troll. I have made it successfully several times as have other people. If you are having a problem it is possible that you may not be letting the sugar actually dissolve. This process takes several minutes and you will know you have achieved it when the syrup is almost clear and you don't have any granules on the bottom while you stir.

      Works well for me. Have made this recipe several times with no failures. Suggest that when you ass the water at the end you add VERY HOT water as this prevents the caramel from cooling too quickly and setting immediately. On the first time I made this had to gently re-simmer to dissolve caramel and water but the hot water works a treat.

      Yummy! My husband is not generally a coffee drinker except for Starbuck's. He really liked this syrup mixed with a little milk, comparing it to Starbuck's caramel macchiato. Thank you for this recipe!

      With espresso and steamed milk this syrup makes a coffee that tastes like a caramel macchiato! I will make and use again - can't thank you enough :)
