I hate to spend money on chocolate syrup. I don’t like most cheaper brands and even with sales and coupons, it’s an expense I hate to pay for. Plus, the ingredients aren’t the best.
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!
- 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.
