Use this to make a homemade cinnamon dolce latte or your own homemade caramel apple spice drink by adding 2-3 tablespoons to a cup of apple juice or apple cider. You can top the drink with whipped cream and caramel or vanilla ice cream! The caramel apple spice is a fall favorite for both kids and adults. Read More

Needs WAY less cinnamon (ended up tasting more like hot tamales than cinnamon dolce) and much longer in the saucepan to begin to resemble anything near syrup. Read More

If you're a cinnamon junkie like me you'll find this intoxicating! I add this syrup to my morning coffee and over vanilla ice cream. Delicious and so easy to make! Be sure to use a good quality ground cinnamon one with a strong scent. I recommend the Saigon type which you can find in almost any grocery or KAF's Vietnamese. Thanks House of Aqua! Read More

I make bottles of this at a time! The only change I make is I add hazelnut extract too. I use it for everything! Goes really well in a homemade Starbucks cinnamon roll FRAP. :) Read More

I like that there isn’t any corn syrup. I had a vanilla bean and used that instead. Yummy. Read More

I'm not sure why more people aren't making this! It's fantastic to add to coffee in the morning. I found the link on Pinterest and I'm sure glad I did. Happy to have found your recipe House of Aqua! Read More

This is seriously good and so simple to make. I used it to flavor my coffee--2 T syrup and 1 T cream--yum. I also used it in a mocha--the cinnamon and chocolate combo was so good. I've meant to make this for a long time and I'm glad I finally did. I would love to try the apple cider drink the submitter recommended in her review. Read More

I changed a few things, I mix the cinnamon with the sugar BEFORE adding the water, also I add 2 cinnamon sticks to it while simmering. I also use Truvia instead of sugar. Brown sugar is actually 1/2 cup Truvia and 1/4 cup Swerve. I tried using just Swerve and it separated/crystallized. Truvia works great as a sugar substitute. Read More

Just made this! The only thing I changed was I added a teaspoon of Cinnamon extract and just a teaspoon of Vanilla extract. Unfortunately after cooling I was about to add to my iced coffee when I knocked it on the ground with only a little left in the jar :/ it was just enough to taste and love and needless to say I'm making my second batch!!
