Most kids have fond memories of upending a syrup bottle and squeezing an inordinate amount of thick, sugary deliciousness into a glass of pure white milk. As any kid knows, when the milk is either about to overflow or equal to the accumulated syrup in the bottom of the glass, it is then time to stir. Whether stirred vigorously or slowly, watching the white milk turn red or brown with strawberry syrup or chocolate syrup is like a dinging bell for old Pavlov’s canine companion. Every kid knows that it is time to enjoy a treat when the color is uniform.

Whether waffles, ice cream, or just a glass of milk are begging for a little strawberry love, this fantastic recipe will be just what puts the perfect touch of finality to whatever it is you are making!
