Quick & Easy Homemade Coffee Flavored Syrup Extract

I am a coffee addict, and I have quite a few friends and family members who love coffee too. So I am always looking for ways to feed the addiction. I have made flavored syrups in the past to add to my cup O' joe but until recently, I had never attempted to make COFFEE flavored syrup. That is until I needed to buy a tiny little bottle of coffee extract and it cost me almost $6.00-ouch. There has to be a way I can make this.  After all, that is usually my first thought when I think something is crazy expensive!

Syrups are simply made from 1 part water to 2 parts granulated sugar- So I just subbed brewed coffee for the water, and added some vanilla to really pop some flavor into it. Delicious it is like a "syrupy", sweet espresso. These ingredients cost less than $1.00, can't beat those savings.

Use to pour over ice cream, pancakes, and brownies. It can be mixed into cocktails to infuse coffee flavor, stir into milk for a grownup “hot chocolate”, or milkshakes. Bake with it !  Tiramisu, cookies, frosting and so much more.

This coffee syrup makes an amazing gift to any coffee lover in your life! Pop it in a basket with a pretty mug, and a bag of espresso beans and I am telling you they will be up all night thinking of ways to thank you! (Ok maybe that's more from the caffeine, but still there will be sincere gratitude)

Grab that leftover coffee from the pot and lets get started with this simple 2 step process!
