Chocolate Yumminess


Not very long ago, i came across a recipe for homemade chocolate syrup at this blog, My inspired heart. You know the kind you use for chocolate milk.I always want to buy it but i just never do, probably for good reason. But it looked yummy and easy, so why not give it a try. We were not disappointed.

CHOCOLATE SYRUP

1/3 c. cocoa powder
2 c. sugar
1 c. water
pinch salt
1/2 t. vanilla

Combine the cocoa powder, sugar and salt in the water, whisk so all ingredients are combined. Bring to a boil over medium heat. watch out for boiling over. boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Once it cools pour in a jar to store. Refrigerate....this makes it a little thicker, more like store bought.


When i make it again i think that i will lower the sugar and raise the amount of cocoa powder. It is also very good over ice cream....just ask the kids or Chris. They say it is great.

And no corn syrup...well played Leslie, well played. I will have to give that one a shot with the reduced sugar. Do you ever outgrow chocolate milk?

Glad you liked the recipe! I was thinking of making the same adjustments the next time I make it. Emma told me she wants it to be more chocolaty :)
