This is a super easy recipe for delicious, homemade Coconut Syrup. It’s a perfect syrup for waffles & pancakes – especially ube mochi waffles. You could also use this as a drizzle for ice cream or as a sweetener for coffee.  This is inspired by the coconut syrup served at King’s Hawaiian Restaurant in Torrance, CA – they serve it with French Toast
