This is a beautiful syrup and is a marriage in beverage heaven when this is drizzled over the Vanilla-Spiked Hot Cocoa. We really enjoyed it. Big hugs to you for posting this:)

Now I can make my Dr. Pepper at home take just like the Vanilla Dr. Pepper I order at Sonic.

I needed a vanilla syrup for Starbucks Frappuccino, vanilla flavor. My husband is nuts for the stuff but it's expensive to buy by the bottle-this worked perfectly! I did use 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar to give it a hint of caramel-perfection-he's a happy camper, and this is beyond easy to make. Thanks for posting!
