📝 What is in Cinnamon Dolce Syrup?
You only need a handful of common kitchen ingredients to make your own Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. Let's talk about them below.
- Water: Just plain water will do.
- Sugar: This recipe calls for two kinds of sugar: white granulated sugar and brown sugar.
- Cinnamon: Use a few cinnamon sticks in this recipe, rather than the pre ground stuff. They're easy to find in your regular grocery store (check the baking aisle) or on Amazon.
- Vanilla: This recipe gets finished off with a bit of vanilla extract. Store bought or homemade vanilla extract works well here.
👩🏻🍳 How to make Cinnamon Dolce Syrup?
It's very easy to make! If you can make a regular simple syrup (trust me, you can), then you can make this flavored syrup.
Start out by combining water and both sugars in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Turn the heat up to medium and give it all a whisk. Bring the simple syrup to a simmer.
After that, keep simmering, and add the cinnamon sticks. Whisk everything again, making sure that the cinnamon sticks get submerged into the syrup. Let all of that simmer for about 10 minutes.
Next, kill the heat and add the vanilla extract. Give it all a whisk again. Let the syrup cool completely before removing the cinnamon sticks (you can throw these away) and storing the syrup in an airtight container in the fridge.
