I find it a lot easier to make pancakes or waffles and pour the syrup over them. Great for ice cream too.
Consciousness: That annoying time between naps.

You could remake it, but the texture is more gummy like. Not really what I prefer to do, but it works. Then you can always stir in some instant Clear Jel and it will thicken up each jar as you use it. Not the regular kind, but the instant Clear Jel.
I can, you can, too !
