This is soooo easy to make and a really good syrup if you like the caramel taste. It's not thick, it's more on the runny side, but very tasty. The prep time is approximate. This came out of my very favorite cookbook "Where's Mom Now That I Need Her?"

I am obsessed with this syrup! It tastes so wickedly caramelly and decadent. It is my go-to for pancakes and waffles. I actually love how runny it is because it really soaks down in to the pancake. I add a bit of vanilla after boiling for just an extra bit of flavor. SOOOO good!

Delicious! I did cut back on the water about a Tablespoon and let it cool some before using and it thickened up a bit as a result. Great flavor! Thanks for sharing your recipe :) Made for PAC Fall 09
