Recipe Share: Homemade chocolate syrup (no HFCS!)


I've recently come into an abundance of Hershey's baking cocoa (Thanks to Swagbucks and free Amazon.com gift cards!). This is a very thrifty way to make your own high fructose corn syrup free Hershey's chocolate syrup. I keep mine in a jar (it's an old honey jar that's been sterilized) in the fridge. I've heard it can last in the fridge for up to 4 weeks, but that's never happened in this house! It's a little thinner than the store-bought version but it's very rich and lovely!

Homemade Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup Hershey's baking cocoa
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Dash of salt (not too much!)
Combine the cocoa, sugar, salt and water in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and stir constantly. Let it boil for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Let it cool a little and then add the vanilla. Store in an old squeezy bottle or a jar in the fridge. You could probably even replace the vanilla with some peppermint oil and make this mint-chocolate syrup! This is great for making chocolate milk or for on ice cream!

This is awesome. I was just thinking tonight that I'd like to have some chocolate milk (but not bad enough to buy a bottle of syrup).
