- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 1 dash salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Combine the water, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt together in a saucepan over low heat; whisk constantly until the mixture thickens and begins to simmer. Remove from heat and stir the vanilla into the sauce. Serve warm or cover and refrigerate until serving.
The longer you whisk and simmer the thicker the mixture is. My family likes it a little thinner
This is the recipe I followed to make chocolate syrup when my husband said he wanted chocolate milk. This works great for chocolate milk, hot cocoa, ice cream topping, and so much more!
The ingredients are so few it is crazy the amount of things that are added to the stuff you buy from the store.
