This is one of my favorite things to make! One jar of chocolate syrup can be used for lots of yummy things in our house. We use it for iced or hot coffee, in almond milk, & on top of homemade banana soft serve and ice cream. This chocolate syrup recipe is so clean and very simple. No high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, or artificial flavors. You can't say that about most store bought syrups!
Here is what you will need:
*1 c. water
*3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa
*1 c. sugar
*1 tsp vanilla extract
*a pinch of salt
(I found that the batch I made with regular white sugar was
delicious, but the batch made with organic sugar what a
little thinker. I don't know if it is because the organic crystals are a
little bigger, but from now on, I use organic sugar.)
In a medium sauce pan, whisk the sugar, cocoa, and salt.
Add water and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
As you whisk, the mixture will absorb the water and start to thicken slightly
Once boiling, reduce heat and cook for one minute.
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Let the syrup cool for a little bit before pouring into your container.
Let cool completely before storing in the fridge.
Ready to pour on pretty much anything! Yum!!
I use reusable jar lids by Ball for food that I don't put through the canning process. These lids are also great if you want to store craft items, pantry items, school supplies, or small items for a tool chest (nails or screws).
