Homemade Chocolate Syrup

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 🙂

Once the mixture was the consistency I thought looked good…I let it cool on the stove a little bit. At this point, I had NO idea how it tasted because it was boiling hot!!

Once it cooled down, I poured it into this sweet little container and left a little bit out for my chocolate milk.  BOY was it chocolate-y!!

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!
