Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Lately, we’ve been going through chocolate syrup like its going out of style. Since I love making things from scratch I thought I’d give chocolate syrup a try. As it turns out, it’s super simple to make and tastes a little more satisfying knowing I’ve made it rather than purchased it!

Ingredients:
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/4tsp salt
1 Tbs. vanilla

What I did:
In a small saucepan whisk together the sugar and cocoa powder. Add water and salt and bring to boil, stirring, with the whisk, constantly. Once boiling lower heat and stir for another 3-4 minutes. Add vanilla, turn off heat and set pan aside to cool. Once cooled transfer to air tight container and refrigerate. Sauce will thicken as it cools!
