DaVinci Gourmet Syrup Review & Giveaway

Davinci's Gourmet Syrups are not new to me. I first became familiar with their syrups in my freshman year of High School. I spent a lot of time earning extra money at my dads work. The waiting room was always stocked with coffee and a large variety of DaVinci Gourmet Syrups. I loved having them in my coffee and I was always mixing and matching to make my own flavors. I haven't had it in several years though, so it has been great to reconnect with DaVinci. I've also learned that there are so many more uses for DaVinci's syrup than I ever knew.  I found one in particular that I want to make and bring to our families Thanksgiving get together. They can be used in coffee of course, milkshakes, Italian Soda, tea, marinades, salad dressings, and baking. There are so many flavors and even more uses for them. I was sent three samples, a hazelnut, Kahlua, and sugar free Kahlua. I have tried the Hazelnut and the regular Kahlua and they are even better then I remember. I have used them in coffee and made a milkshake with the Kahlua flavor. Yummy!
You can find Davinci Gourmet Syrup in most grocers, Super Walmart's , and fine grocers. I have found it to be around $6 in most stores and sometimes even as low as $4. You can find DaVinci on their website http://www.davincigourmet.com/, their Facebook DaVinci Gourmet, and twitter https://twitter.com/#!/DaVinciGourmet. I thought I would share the simple recipe that I found for Hazelnut Truffles. 

Hazelnut (Gianduia)Truffles


Ingredients

Directions

Place the chocolate, butter and Hazelnut syrup in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high one minute and stir well. If the mixture is not smooth, continue to microwave and stir in short bursts until the truffle mixture is smooth and glossy. Chill for 2 hours or until the consistency of fudge and then roll into 1-inch balls. Roll truffles in grated chocolate and store in the refrigerator for up to one month or at room temperature for 5 days.

Yield

18 1-inch balls
