Step into my life homemade chocolate syrup. BHG originally published this recipe some 40+ years ago. Well, wow! It's got 5 ingredients. You control the quality of them and it's super quick and easy!
2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa powder (I used Hershey's)
1/8-1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups water
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- In a small saucepan, mix cocoa, sugar & salt.
- Add water.
- Stir over medium heat just until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently (this only takes a few minutes and doesn't need to boil or get super hot as long as the sugar dissolves).
- Remove from heat.
- Add vanilla & stir.
- Let cool slightly and store covered in the refrigerator.
I stored the syrup in a old creamer bottle. Made the label to make it look fancy.
