This chocolate syrup recipe is so easy and delicious. With only a few pantry-staple ingredients needed, you'll never have an excuse not to make it. Should be good for at least a month when stored properly. I usually find plenty of ways to use it up before then.
1cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1/2teaspoonsaltor to taste
1teaspoon vanilla extractor to taste
Mix the sugar and cocoa together in a saucepan until thoroughly combined.
Add the water and half of the salt (1/4 teaspoon). Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Continue to boil while constantly stirring until the mixture thickens a little. (It will thicken more as it cools) This should take around 3 or 4 minutes.
Carefully taste and add the rest of the salt, if desired.
Remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
Cool and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I like using a glass jar.
The vanilla extract and salt amount can be adjusted according to taste. I can also see swapping out the vanilla for peppermint or orange extract.
