Homemade Vanilla Coffee Syrup is easy to make and will take your morning coffee to the next level! This starts with a simple syrup recipe that is infused with a blast of vanilla bean flavor! Make coffee-house style coffee at home or use this vanilla syrup in tea, desserts or as a topping. This also makes a great homemade gift.
In a 3qt pot, bring water, white sugar and brown sugar to a boil.
Reduce heat and add vanilla beans.
Simmer and stir for approximately 5 minutes or until mixture becomes a thin syrupy consistency.
Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract for an extra punch of vanilla flavor.
Let cool then transfer to an airtight container. Store in refrigerator and use within 2 weeks.
Pure vanilla extract can be used instead of or along with the vanilla beans.
The amount of vanilla beans or extract can be adjusted according to your preferences. (I use 1 vanilla bean and 2 tsps extract)
Makes approximately 2½ cups of syrup.
