Torani Syrup

Like most people, I love my morning cup of coffee. It can be an expensive habit because I love specialty coffees. I have a hard time finding flavored coffees that I like. Either they are too sweet, too strong, not strong enough or they just taste bad!! This means I normally buy my coffee at a coffee shop! Now this is about to change.

I’m a member of SheSpeaks Blogger Society and was recently asked if I wanted to try, and review, some Torani Flavored Syrups. Of course I wanted to try it but I was skeptical about if I would like it. I’ve used Torani Syrup before but only in a jello shot recipe.

I was sent 2 bottles of Torani Syrup. One was Sugar Free Vanilla and the other was Pumpkin Pie. I was also sent 5 FREE coupons for Torani Syrup. I’m planning a giveaway soon so look out for it in the next couple of weeks (after my cruise to cabo!).

This morning I brewed my coffee, added some cream and a little of the Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup. Wow! It tastes amazing. Just the right amount of Vanilla and it’s not too sweet. I think I’ve found my new morning cup of coffee. An added bonus is that the Sugar Free Syrups have zero calories.

With over 120 different flavors to choose from I’m going to be concocting a lot of different drinks with Torani Syrup. It can be used to make coffees, lattes, alcoholic beverages, Italian Sodas and more!

I use Torani Syrup to make this jello shot recipe. It’s a hit at every party I attend!

1 Large Cherry Jello package
2 cups boiling water
¾ cups Torani Crème de Cacao
¼ cup vodka
1 cup White Rum
Magic Shell
1 jar maraschino cherries
Whipped Cream
Jello Shot containers (I use 2 oz plastic soufflé cups)

24 hours before preparing(If you’re short on time then you can skip this step)
Strain the cherries leaving about ¼ of the juice in the jar. Fill the jar with white rum. Place cherries in refrigerator overnight.

Preparing Jello Shots at least 3-4 hours before serving
Strain the Maraschino cherries and rum mixture into a measuring cup/bowl. Add rum to the mixture until it measures 1 cup.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Remove from heat and add jello. Mix until jello is dissolved. Stir in the 1 cup of rum that you measured out, ¼ cup of vodka and ¾ cups of Torani Crème de Cacao.

Pour mixture into jello shot containers. Fill the containers about ¾ of the way. Place 1 cherry in the middle of each jello shot.

Refrigerate jello shots until they are firm.

Immediately before serving pour a thin layer of Magic Shell on each jello shot. Put them in the freezer for about 20-30 seconds OR until Magic Shell is hard. Put a small amount of whipped cream on each one and serve!

A big thank you to SheSpeaks and Torani for the free syrup. All Opinions are mine.

  7. Talking about bitter coffee. My nephew brought me a blueberry coffee from Dunkin Donuts and it was horribly bitter. So what I like to do is take my regular go to coffee and add my Torani! Yummy. My favorite so far is the brown sugar cinnamon.
