So I initially made this recipe because I was making something else which required chocolate syrup… and in true Trina fashion, I was unprepared and didn’t have any in the house. I know, how is that even possible!? So, resourceful little me thought how hard could making chocolate syrup actually be? I turned to the web and found a recipe for homemade chocolate syrup… but again I didn’t have the exact amount of ingredients on hand so I readjusted my quantities and hoped for the best. What I ended up making was nothing short of amazing! So, if you’re a chocolate lover like me, I think you’ll need this homemade chocolate recipe in your life! Simply put – like I said it’s AH-MAZING!

This Chocolate Syrup Recipe Is Way Better Than The Store Stuff!

Like I said above I made this recipe because I needed chocolate syrup in another recipe. I was originally just going to add the chocolate syrup recipe into the same post as my other recipe… that was until I tasted it! Oh man – this homemade chocolate syrup tastes unreal. And I think that an unreal recipe is deserving of a post of its own! It’s way better than the stuff you buy at the store. And bonus – it contains 5 ingredients (all which you can pronounce). So the next time you need chocolate syrup, try and make it yourself.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Yields 1 cup of chocolate syrup

Ingredients
 ¾ cup good quality unsweetened pure cocoa powder
 ¾ cup white sugar
 1 cup cold water
 ¼ tsp salt
 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Directions
1

In a medium-sized saucepan, stir together the cocoa powder and sugar until well blended.

2

Add the water, salt, and vanilla. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly.

3

Continue boiling and stirring until mixture thickens, usually about 3 – 4 minutes. The mixture will be fairly thin (it will thicken to a syrup-like consistency once cooled).

4

Remove from heat and cool. Store the syrup in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator. When refrigerated it will keep for at least a month. Enjoy!

You Can Use This Stuff On Anything!

I tried it over ice cream – and yep, this chocolate syrup recipe is the real deal. It’s a KEEPER. I’m positive this stuff would taste good on almost anything!

I’m sure that I don’t have to explain the many uses of chocolate syrup.

It’s so easy to make and really does taste a million times better than any than the store-bought stuff.

    Wow that sound like a good idea, using cacao and sugar for a simple chocolate syrup. I will try that for sure! Thank you for sharing.
