Homemade Chocolate Syrup!

on August 6, 2012

So, by now, if you’ve been following my blog, you’ve heard about my non-existent budget. Well, like most people, my husband and I like to have chocolate ever-so-often. In fact, it led me on my search for cheap and easy chocolate recipes, like the Recipes in a Mug and my absolute favorite quick and easy, one-pan chocolate brownie recipe, ever.

Well, I just happened to find this recipe while searching on a coupon website. It’s great for chocolate milk and all the other lovely things that you can make with Chocolate Syrup!

So here it is,

How to Make Chocolate Syrup!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla

Mix cocoa and water in a decent sized saucepan (to be safe, use a large one!).  Heat it up and stir it to dissolve the cocoa.  Add the sugar, stirring to dissolve it, too.  Boil this mixture for 3 minutes over medium heat, but be careful not to let it get too hot and boil over (which it will do very easily if you aren’t careful!)  Turn off the heat and add the salt and vanilla. Let it cool completely (which can take a few hours, honestly) and then pour it into a glass jar, or use a funnel to pour it into a recycled plastic container to pour from. 😉

Voila! You have just made chocolate syrup!

It will thicken in the fridge some, and it’s runny when its still warm, so don’t worry about any of that too much! 🙂

We’ve used it over ice cream, in milk, and over brownies! It has been great and its cheap and easy to make!

ENJOY!
