gingerbread coffee syrup recipe

Gingerbread flavored items just scream Christmas, don’t they? If you are looking for a fun, inexpensive, and thoughtful holiday gift, why not try this recipe for Gingerbread Syrup? This delicious syrup is perfect for coffee or hot chocolate. You can drizzle it over brownies, waffles, ice cream, pie or into many adult beverages. My kids love it over french toast with a dollop of cream on top!

Place a nicely decorated bottle into a basket with gingerbread cookies, cocoa, and an inexpensive mug for a sweet, homemade gift. But I wouldn’t blame you if you kept it for yourself- during the holidays I keep a large bottle in the refrigerator for my morning coffee!

I made 2 large bottles in these vintage decanters I picked up at a yard sale. I added a cute little gingerbread ornament that I picked up last year for $1. It probably costs me less than $2 to make this Gingerbread Syrup, making this an extremely affordable gift, perfect for teachers, grandparents, friends and more!
