How to make Chocolate Syrup

Better than store-bought. And it only takes about 5 minutes! Super easy.

  • 1/2c cocoa powder (I used frontier)
  • 3/4c sugar (if you like things rather sweet, I would say increase this to 1c)
  • 3/4c water
  • dash of salt
  • 1t vanilla extract

Mix sugar and cocoa in a 1 or 2 qt pot. Gradually add water, stirring out lumps. Turn the heat on low until the sugar is melted, stir occasionally. Turn heat up to medium and bring to a boil.  Stirring constantly now, so it doesn’t burn on the bottom (burnt chocolate is yuck!) Keep boiling until thickened. It should take about 3-5 mins and will turn shiny and dark- beautiful! Keep in mind that it will continue to thicken as it cools. Store in a glass jar in the fridge. This recipe makes around 1 cup, so feel free to double it!
