real fake maple syrup

I hate to admit it but I don't like real maple syrup.  I don't care too much for the cost (or the taste) but High Fructose Corn Syrup in store bought artificial maple syrup doesn't make me any happier.  So, I turned to my mother-in-law for her recipe for her real fake maple syrup.

Maple Syrup
1 3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
Combine and bring to a boil cooking for 1 minute.  Remove from heat.  Let it cool slightly and add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla & a 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring. Cover saucepan for a few minutes as syrup cooks to melt down crystals: it helps prevent syrup from crystallizing in storage later. 
Enjoy!
