We ran out of Syrup a few weeks ago, no car and I thought...I can make this. So I found several recipes online and took what I thought was the easiest. They all have about the same ingredients, but different order of assembly. This is how I made mine. Delicious, easy, tastier than store bought, and most importantly cheap. I've been making a bottle a week, because we use on ice cream and in coffee. You know all those healthy antioxidants.
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract
I don't use a lot of salt, so a touch works. Put water, sugar and cocoa in a good sized saucepan. You need to boil this and it really bubbles up. First time I put in in a small saucepan and had a chocolate stove. I whisk the ingredients while cool and keep whisking through the process. Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for 3 minutes.
Take off heat and whisk in salt and vanilla. Let cool.
After the sauce is cool I pour into the old chocolate squeeze bottle. Or you can put it in a jar. This version must be refrigerated, because we didn't add preservatives (cool) and it will probably turn to chocolate liquor if you let it sit out too long.
I also wanted to add this awesome video I found today. Poppy is making a Nyan Cat costume, and her 8 year old and I were looking at Nyan Cat videos. I thought this one, laughable, fit the yummy chocolate munchie theme.
A little early in the day for Weed, but never too early for chocolate Syrup. Have a Great day and Enjoy!
