Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 (12 ounce) bottles root beer (I use diet)
  • 14 cup sugar (I use Splenda)


  1. Bring root beer and sugar (or Splenda) to a boil in heavy medium saucepan over high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes or until mixture has reduced by 3/4 and is syrupy.
  3. Remove from heat and allow syrup to cool to room temperature.
  4. Serve on top of vanilla ice cream.( I use no sugar added ice cream).
  5. Serving suggestion: top with crushed hard root beer candy, whipped cream and a cherry.
  6. I think I shall try this with Diet Orange Cream Soda also!
