Christmas Neighbor Gifts: Homemade Syrup with a Will Ferrell twist.

Last year's 'Neighbor Gifts' came with a Will Ferrell twist. 
{ can you NOT love him? ESPECIALLY in the movie "Elf". It's pretty much the best thing ever.}

I whipped up some homemade syrup {scroll down for recipe} and Michelle at Tipsy Graphics made the labels.

Tied em up with ribbon and they were ready to go!!

Marci Coombs' Homemade Syrup 
{SERIOUSLY tasty with waffles and pancakes!}

3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup water
1 cup corn syrup
1/4 tsp maple flavoring
3/4 tsp vanilla flavoring

Boil sugars and water together.
Add corn syrup and flavorings. Bring back to a boil for one more minute and then take off of heat. 

*Side note: I used pint sized jars for these and one recipe made up 1 1/2 jars. If you're making a lot of these, I would suggest quadrupling the recipe.

*Double Side Note: I LOVE this recipe because it DOES NOT need to be refrigerated.  It can be kept in your pantry.'s super easy to make.'s super tasty.

  1. It's really nice to see a gift guide where you're actually properly talking about the things you've picked out!
