Simple Times, Simple Chocolate Syrup Recipe
I remember as a young girl getting a sundae with Hershey’s syrup on it from my mom. Those were easy, wonderful days as a kid. You can still get the syrup in a can at the grocery store, but I found I love making it myself at home. This Decadent Chocolate Syrup recipe is easy to make, and makes a great addition to anything that you would add chocolate syrup to, including coffee, milk, angel food cake, or a bowl of strawberries! Personally, I love Decadent Chocolate Syrup drizzled over fruited muffins, like blueberry streusel. It makes a fantastic topping for ice cream as well.
Decadent Chocolate Syrup Recipe: Natural and Fresh
I love making things at home that I can revamp with more natural ingredients. Decadent Chocolate Syrup is one of those things. Instead of high fructose corn syrup, I use natural raw sugar or sometimes regular white sugar. A great natural cocoa powder is key to the best flavor. I’ve always used Hershey’s Cocoa Powder in my Decadent Chocolate Syrup recipe. It provides a rich flavor that is synonymous with chocolate syrup.
- 1 1/2 C water
- 1 3/4 C raw sugar (or 1 1/2 C white sugar)
- 1 C cocoa powder
- 1 T vanilla
- dash of salt
- Place the water, sugar, and cocoa powder in a heavy saucepan.
- Heat over medium heat and simmer until syrup starts to thicken, stirring constantly.
- Remove from heat; add salt and vanilla. Stir well.
- Serve warm, or cool and store in a glass container in the refrigerator.
Best Chocolate Milk with Decadent Chocolate Syrup
My mom always made chocolate milk with chocolate syrup from a can she kept in the refrigerator. I started that with my children, with Decadent Chocolate Syrup that I made from scratch. They love it, and it’s a great, natural way to get them to drink milk when they really want something a little sweet. I think it even tastes better than what mom used to make. But don’t tell her that!
