When I first ran across this recipe for Chocolate Syrup in The Tightwad Gazette, I was anxious to try it…especially since we’d just run out and I already had all the ingredients on hand. What could be better!
1/2 c Cocoa
1 c Water
2 c Sugar
1/8 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Vanilla
Mix cocoa and water in a saucepan. Heat until all the cocoa powder is dissolved. Add the sugar and continue to heat until it is dissolved. Boil for 3 min. Now, add the salt and the vanilla. Stir. Cool and store in the fridge. Keeps for several months.
We’ve enjoyed having it this month. I do wish I’d kept the bottle the original stuff was in, rather than messing with the mason jar. And, upon using it, I do have to say that I think 2 cups of sugar is too much and makes it too sweet. But, I’m a dark chocolate girl, so that probably has something to do with it.
Enjoy your homemade chocolaty goodness!
