Yet another wonderful way to knock off a glass of chocolate milk! I cut this recipe in half & then shared the resulting syrup with some neighbor kids, who obviously enjoyed it, as did I! Instead of a liqueur I used a hazelnut syrup for coffee, & that worked very well! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Oh this is so delicious! I scaled this recipe wayyyy down and tried to get the measurements as close as I could. I had to share the cup since I am on a diet, but I didn't want to! I used Hazlenut Organic syrup to flavor. Worked out great. I will try this with other syrups I have. Thank you Bergy!!!
