Alton Brown's Cocoa Syrup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Molidol

Who needs store bought syrup anymore. This tastes much better! I have made it many times. Use it for ice cream, chocolate milk, on top of brownies, or chug straight from the bottle...no, I would never do that. ;) This recipe came from the Food Network website where it rates a solid five stars.

Top Review by tornadoes three

We had sundaes last night and my kids and I made this recipe. Very good. VERY GOOD. I felt like I had order a sundae from a fancy ice cream parlor. LOL. Seriously, I was a big hit with my kids. I was suggested by Molidol that using a higher quality cocoa powder will increase the flavor; I agree. Thanks Molidol! Hershey's ain't got nothin' on you girl!
