Homemade vanilla and chocolate syrup

Once a week I am going to try and make something homemade.  Today it was Hershey’s chocolate syrup.  I had to get the homemade vanilla extract I made in December out of the pantry.

I was going to link to the post about how easy vanit was to make, and how I did it, but remembered that it was going to be a present.  I got excited didn’t read all the directions, and realized I didn’t have enough time to make it for a gift, but here we are, 6 months later and I have vanilla extract.



Had to filter out all the little bean specks.
