I like keeping this on hand for when recipes call for chocolate syrup. It is much cheaper to make your own. You can serve this sauce over ice cream or use 1 to 2 tbsp in a glass of milk for chocolate milk. I have used different types of flavour extract (mint, orange, rum....) instead of vanilla to change it up every so often.
- Combine cocoa, sugar, salt and water in saucepan.
- Place over moderate heat and boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat, cool slightly and add vanilla.
- Store in a covered container in refrigerator.
Wow, what a quick and easy recipe for chocolate syrup-I will never have to buy it in the store again! I made this for Best of 2010 Cookbook Tag. Thanks for a new family favorite!
wow quick and easy
Wonderful! I made this with 1/2 cup sugar and 3/4 cup Splenda. It is a bit thinner than store-bought but the flavor is way better...I LOVE cocoa. I used it in my http://www.food.com/recipe/chocolate-peppermint-tea-206892 and it was perfect. Freddy Cat says hi! Made for kittencalskitchen.com tag game.
