  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional


  • In a small saucepan, add the brown sugar and water.
  • Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Cook and stir until all of the sugar is dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and cool completely at room temperature.


  • Vanilla Extract: You can omit this, but I think it adds a nice flavor.
  • Do not boil. The syrup should still be pretty thin once cooled. If overheated, it will turn into caramel. For a thicker syrup, cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container, bottle, or jar in the fridge for 3-4 weeks.
