We love syrup around our house- especially homemade! This year I will be decorating some of my hoarded jars for some of our neighbor gifts. It’s a nice gift because I already know they like it, and it is something that can be tucked in the fridge and used at any time. I might even include a bag of frozen pancakes with it as well.
- 1 Cup light corn syrup
- ½ Cup brown sugar
- ½ Cup of water
- Dash maple flavor
- 1 Tbs. butter or margarine
- Combine syrup, brown sugar and water. Cook on the stove on low heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in flavoring and butter. It can be served hot off the stove, or after being refrigerated.
I had an empty bottle that was from olive oil- washed out it was a perfect bottle to give away some syrup in. For ourselves, I just use a water bottle that we were able to get for free from one of our utility companies. It works perfectly! I know my mom uses a gravy dish and in the past I have used a large glass measuring cup to hold my maple syrup too. There are so many options and cute ways to hold it.
If I buy ink before Christmas I’ll attach some of the Buddy the Elf quotes to the syrup when we give them away. Feel free to print it off and use it for your gifts too!
