Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Standard

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

Ingredients:

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 cup water

2 cups sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/8 tsp salt

Method:

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.
