Homemade Chocolate Syrup

I finally have a little time off work so we had some friends over last night for a barbeque and visit.  We made grilled pizzas for dinner and then for dessert, we did chocolate dessert waffles (recipe to follow) so I decided to make some homemade toppings for the waffles and this was one of them.  Tastes like Hersheys Syrup only much better!  And it couldn’t be any easier to make!  I found it on a blog called “One Good Thing by Jillee”, here is the link:  http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/03/homemade-chocolate-syrup.html.

1 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup water

dash of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

In a small saucepan, add sugar, cocoa and salt.  Whisk together gently.  Add water.  Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Reduce heat and cook 1 minute.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Cool. Store in refrigerator.

  1. That was the orginal recipe published in a Hershey Cocoa recipe pamphelet in the 1930’s. My husband’s grandmother saved it and made it all the time. Thanks for sharing.
