Coffee Bean Syrup

Ooohhhhh – I can’t even begin to tell you just how excited I am about this recipe. If you are a COFFEE LOVER like I am – you try to add a little java to just about anything you can. I start my day off with a 28 ounce mug of some really strong coffee. Sometimes that isn’t quite enough. Soooo….I decided to see if I could give a jolt to my breakfast too. Because really- I wanted to see if I COULD. The result was over the top- so much better than I ever imagined.

Coffee Bean Syrup

I grew up with whip cream on my waffles & pancakes. Then in high school one of my best friends was from Australia. When she told me that they serve waffles with a scoop of ice cream on it for breakfast – that was it for me. GENIUS! Why didn’t I ever think of that before??!! A reason to have ice cream for breakfast- I’m all over that. So the perfect combination here is waffles & vanilla ice cream topped with this Coffee Bean Syrup. HEAVEN on a breakfast plate – I’m tellin’ ya.

One little taste- my eyes rolled to the back of my head. TO DIE FOR!

    Oh my word! I don’t even know how to contain my excitement for this! I love the coffee flavour but hate hot drinks, so I try and get coffee flavouring wherever I can, cakes, frappes and syrups. I’ve pinned this and can’t wait to make it this weekend.

    Nipping over from Share Your Stuff Tuesdays.

      Oh Ariean – I adore you! Most just pop in my head & usually keep me up at night. 2 am is the typical arrival & then I lay there thinking about it until it’s time to get up for coffee.
