Honestly, I never would have even looked for this recipe, except that it was called for in the Nutella Brownie Bites. (yum)
But, anytime you can make a product as opposed to buying it, you are guaranteed a food that is free of preservatives and additives. Always a good thing, ’cause who wants a product that has a shelf life of years?!
This little gem is a great sweet accompaniment to ice cream and crepes, or use just a small spoonful to make chocolate milk or hot chocolate!
Once cooled, keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two months.
Homemade Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1. Place cocoa powder and water in a medium saucepan; mix until cocoa is dissolved.
2. Add sugar and bring to a boil. Whisk for 3 minutes, keeping an eye as it can bubble over VERY fast.
3. Remove from heat and add vanilla and salt.
4. Let cool; store in an airtight, glass container.
