Hershey's Syrup Copycat

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

Found this on the net. Supposedly this is the recipe featured on the can of Hershey's cocoa before Hershey's syrup was marketed. Thicker than other syrup recipes I've tried and none of the gross stuff in commercial varieities. Sorry, Hershey's, but I much prefer Penzey's natural process cocoa. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
