I love me a tall, cold glass of chocolate milk. Yum-o! In case you haven’t been watching the news lately, I live in North Texas and it has been H.O.T. I was dying for a glass of chocolate milk but dont buy regular chocolate syrup. I did have water, sugar, cocoa, salt and vanilla on hand, so I tried to make my own. Famous last words right!?
First, I made a simple syrup of one part water to two parts sugar. In my case, I used one cup water and two cups sugar.
I brought the sugar water to a boil until all sugar was dissolved and then added a half cup cocoa, some salt and a little vanilla. Not super scientific but worth a shot….in the dark…chocolate. hehehe 🙂
Have you ever made your own chocolate syrup? I would love to know if there is a better way. For now, I will go with the less-is-more-but-oh-so-delicious chocolate syrup I made that sits in my fridge!
