Cinnamon Syrup

This was my mom's 'secret' syrup recipe. We loved it growing up. I have found that by making it with less sugar (like 1/2 c.) it still tastes great, yet not quite as sweet. It is a very sweet recipe.

1 c. sugar
1/2 c. corn syrup
1/4 c. water
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. evaporated milk

Combine sugar, corn syrup, water and cinnamon. Boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Cool for 5 minutes removed from heat. Stir in evaporated milk. Makes 1 2/3 cups.

We tried this Sunday - the kids loved it. I made it with the reduced sugar. I didn't have evaporated milk so I substituted fat-free half and half and it worked!
