Homemade Chocolate Syrup- Better than the bottled stuff! This homemade chocolate syrup is a cinch to make and only requires a handful of simple ingredients.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
A Note About Sugar
I have made this syrup with brown sugar and coconut palm sugar ( instead of the regular white granulated sugar) and it still worked out well. Keep that in mind if you are short on white sugar 😉
Can I Make This Sugar Free?
Yes. Simply adjust your sugar substitute as needed.
Your syrup will seem thin at first. However, it will thicken as it cools
Let the syrup cool for about an hour. Then, store in a covered jar in the refrigerator. It’s best used within 2 weeks.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- dash of salt
- splash of vanilla
- In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together salt, water, sugar and cocoa powder until smooth. Continue until the mixture begins to simmer and thicken. This should take about 5 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla. Let it cool for 30 minutes before serving or 60 minutes if you are storing first.
