    Leopardstripes's Note:

    This is a copycat of the Torani-style flavored syrup. You can also use almond extract, hazelnut, or any other flavor. Easy and inexpensive, compared to coffee-shop prices! Makes a nice holiday or hostess gift.

      The longer you boil sugar, the thicker and harder it gets. This is how candy is made. To prevent the syrup from getting to thick, I didn't boil it at all. I just heated it until the liquid was clear instead of cloudy, which indicated that all the sugar was dissolved. Let it cool then added the vanilla. It was delicious.

      My only complaint is the lack of info on serving size. Otherwise, this worked wonderfully. For others' info: Boiling for 10 minutes yielded about 3 cups for me, which makes each serving about a tablespoon and a half.

      Also for others' info re: boiling sugar, the reason why it gets thicker and harder is that the water is being evaporated from it as it boils. Starting with nearly-equal portions of water and sugar and boiling for ten minutes should not put you anywhere near the candy zone; it'll just get you a slightly thickened syrup, not even as thick as honey for example. You should be careful if you try a half-batch or boil it longer to make it thicker, though, as that will affect how likely your syrup is to over-thicken.

      Worked pretty well, I used more brown sugar. Also, I added a dash of salt (a tiny pinch) and that really livened it up.
