Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Ok so if any of you love chocolate syrup as I do but don't like all the "stuff" they put in the store bought brand, here is a recipe (though not exactly healthy) that you make and you can pronounce everything in the ingredient list. Team it up with your homemade ice cream and yummo!!

If you substitute 1/2 n 1/2 or cream for the water, you end up with a hot fudge topping, but it won't keep as long in the fridge.

Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup cocoa (I usually sift it for easier mixing)
1 cup sugar
dash of salt
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
Combine cocoa, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Add water, and mix until smooth. Bring to a boil, and allow it to boil for 1 minute - be careful it doesn't boil over. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool and refrigerate.



  1. My mother made that exact recipe of chocolate syrup all my growing up years. I never liked white milk and so she always had chocolate syrup for me to add to my milk. When my boys were little I made it for them. But it has been YEARS since I made any. You make me want a glass of choc milk with homemade Choc syrup. YUM!!

  2. Sounds good! Are you going to make me some right now? LOL!!

  3. This sounds wonderful, I am not a huge chocolate syrup fan, but this sounds so much better than Hershey's chocolate syrup! :)

  4. Um, I'm glad you linked it up, but you still didn't make any for me - LOL!!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
