Buttermilk Caramel Syrup for the Last Day of Summer Breakfast

So, it's the Sunday before the kids go back to school.  I want it to be an awesome, laid back kind of day before the early morning tomorrow.  (well laid back for them since I'm doing the work;)  I also let them have a repeat for dinner tonight and my son choose the Ultimate Sriracha Burger.  (good choice)  I saw this syrup on pinterest and said I have buttermilk I need to use, why not?!  I know the kids were clamoring for my famous sprinkle pancakes.  (actually a friend of mine made them first, but my son's friends and cousins adore them and I have to make them if they are here for breakfast.  It's only as taxing as regular pancakes, which for some reason I find very taxing.  Perhaps it is because I'm most emphatically not a morning person and I feel there is something obscene about working that hard with a cup of coffee in hand.  Now huge amazing breakfasts I have no issue with, just so long as someone else is cooking and cleaning that whole thing up.  Now how do I make the sprinkle pancakes.  Well I add sprinkles,  Duh!  I add some the batter and give it a stir.  The sprinkles instantly dissolve into strings of color.  Don't mix too hard.  I was running low on sprinkles so I went light on this batch but you can see them in this picture.

Once they are poured on the grill, give a good shake of the sprinkles over each pancake.  I often have quite a few sprinkles, colored sugars, etc, and let each kid kind of design their own.  I know I'm such a cool mom.  lol

So on to the new syrup.  I think it tasted great and was easy to do, even with coffee in hand.  It wasn't as thick as I would have liked, but boy was it sweet!  So, if you are looking for a way to switch up the morning pancake/waffles, give this a go.
forgive the blurry picture, but that was most likely how I was seeing it:)
