Homemade Peppermint Candy Cane Coffee Syrup 

Homemade Peppermint Candy Cane Coffee Syrup 

Perfect for the approaching holiday seasons, Peppermint Candy Cane Coffee Syrup. Sweet with a bright peppermint flavor. 


When I start seeing candy canes on the store shelves I begin craving peppermint flavored coffee drinks. I know I can get the drinks at a local coffee shop all year round, but they just seem to taste better when the Christmas countdown begins.



This year I decided to save a little money and brew my own homemade peppermint coffee syrup. I wanted to keep it simple, yet still deliver the bright peppermint flavor I so craved.

Preparation

Finely crush five peppermint candy canes.


Add sugar, crushed candy canes, and water into a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir occasionally.


Once the sugar and candy canes have melted down, continue stirring and bring the syrup to a boil. Allow to boil for a couple of minutes And then remove syrup from the heat.


Allow it to cool down to room temperature. Once cooled serve as needed. Left over syrup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 Peppermint Candy Canes (about a 1/2 cup crushed)
  • 2 cups water

I hope you enjoy your Peppermint Candy Cane Coffee Syrup as much as I have.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jason
