You can also purchase the cinnamon syrup instead of making it. Starbucks sells its big bottles for $8 and they last forever.

Starbucks uses their own bottled Cinnamon Dulce syrup. They sell it to the public, I usually have to ask for the syrups. They use Tree Tops apple juice & Cinnamon Dulce syrup, whipped cream with drizzle of caramel.

They don’t sell Treetop products in our area = ( Is there another apple juice that would be similar or would it not be the same?

I made this today using Target brand apple juice and Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup. Tastes just like the Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice.

I’m 7 months pregnant and have been craving the Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice pretty much every day. Thank you so much for this recipe because now my boyfriend doesn’t have to spend $4 every time I crave one of these!

What can I do with any leftover syrup? Does it go bad, change consistency, etc.?

I was wondering the same thing. I’m guessing that you can store it in the fridge in a sealed container. Someone else might have another idea for something that works better.
