Torani Syrups Add A Fun Twist To Hot Chocolate!

Made with only the highest quality of ingredients and a taste so many have come to love, Torani syrups are the perfect addition to your favorite drinks.  Torani has been around since 1925 and is a brand recognized for exceptional flavor.  Known for their delicious coffee enhancing abilities, Torani is also great with many great other drinks as well such as Italian sodas, lemonades, cocktails, and smoothies.  This time of year when the weather is getting chilly outside, it's a great time to think of switching up your favorite hot beverages such as the ever so classic staple - hot chocolate.  With over 120 Torani syrup flavors the possibilities of flavor combinations and unique drink creations are truly endless!

As a java junkie you could imagine I was very excited when presented the opportunity to try Torani syrups in my home and share my thoughts with you.  I had never bought Torani syrups for my own use before this review.  I had only previously seen my local coffee stands use them and always had great coffees as a result.  When my flavors arrived in the mail (Peppermint & Vanilla Bean) I just knew that I had to try them out with some fun and flavorful concoctions.  

So far I have used the Vanilla Bean Torani syrup in my coffee to give it a hint of vanilla.  I am very happy with the results!  It's a nice change to my usual sugar and creamer. My next idea for the Vanilla Bean is to try it in my coffee with a little Baileys creamer.  Yum!  With the Peppermint Torani syrup I thought what a great idea for an addition to hot chocolate!  Our whole family loves hot cocoa on chilly days.  When I told them that I had made them Peppermint Hot Chocolate they were very eager to try out my new Torani creation.  The verdict is out and they may never allow me to make them regular old hot chocolate again!  I have to say it is pretty darn tasty and I love how the two flavors compliment each other.  

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Recipe:
* Makes 4 Servings *


3 cups of milk
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons of Peppermint Torani syrup

1) Pour your milk, water, and peppermint syrup into a saucepan on medium heat.
