Homemade chocolate syrup!

I just made a big pot of chocolate syrup, and now the house smells *so* yummy!! ^.^
  • 1 + 1/4 cup water
  • 1 + 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix the first three ingredients together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and continue to boil for 1 minute. (Note: pay attention to avoid a chocolately bubbly mess. Reduce heat and stir constantly to prevent boil-over.) Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

I let it cool, and then store in the fridge in a clean ketchup squeeze bottle. Great for making a quick glass of chocolate milk for the Sprouts, or a yummy coffee drink for me! This can also be drizzled over ice cream, brownies, fresh fruit, etc. Woot for ooey, gooey chocolatey goodness, and double woot for being HFCS-free, unlike bought chocolate syrup! ^.^

* use any brand of cocoa powder except Nestle's Tollhouse, please.
