Torani Syrup

Do you like fancy coffee drinks like gingerbread lattes and caramel macchiato's but not the high price that comes with it? Well I will share will you my secret to having this great tasting drinks at home. All you need is some Torani syrup and you are on your way to making those fancy coffee drinks. I love Torani syrup and have about  9 different flavors in my pantry. I can make a different flavored coffee every day. All I do is add milk and sugar free salted caramel to my coffee and I have a caramel latte that is so yummy. Torani has over 100 flavors including fruit flavors. Just think of a flavor and Torani probably has it. They even have bacon flavor.  On the Torani website there is many recipes to make many different drinks- http://www.torani.com/#/recipes. Torani syrup is also good for adding wonderful flavor to desserts. I made a mint chocolate pie with peppermint Torani and Vanilla Torani and it was wonderful. My family ate it up in a day and asked me to make it again. Below is my recipe and I showed how easy it is to use Torani to make it taste wonderful.
Crust
I made one with chocolate cookie crumbs or you can buy a premade one
Filling
1/2
cup sugar
1/4
cup cornstarch
1/8
teaspoon salt
1
cup milk
1
cup semisweet chocolate chips
2
egg yolks, slightly beaten
1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, cubed, softened
1 1/2
cups whipping cream
1
teaspoon vanilla
I reduced the milk to 6 ounces and added 2 ounces Torani peppermint syrup. I also used mint chocolate chips for the semisweet chocolate chips. I omitted the vanilla and added 2 teaspoon vanilla Torani syrup.
  


  1. In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk until well blended. Add chocolate chips and egg yolks; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat. Beat in cream cheese with wire whisk until smooth. Cover surface with plastic wrap; refrigerate just until cool, about 1 hour.
  2. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat whipping cream and vanilla on high speed until soft peaks form. Reserve 1 cup whipped cream for topping. Fold remaining whipped cream into cooled chocolate mixture. Spoon evenly into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours or overnight. Spoon or pipe reserved whipped cream over filling. Store in refrigerator.

You can order Torani online at http://shop.torani.com/ or at Amazon. My Albuquerque friends if you want some Torani right now,you can buy it at World Market and the Shamrock store on Montano.

  1. This recipe sounds awesome! I have been wanting to try the gingerbread torani, I may have to pick it up soon. I also just bought a soda stream so I may need to check out some of the fruit flavors to see what I can do with those as well. :)
