I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m posting it here for future reference. It makes 2 1/4 cup syrup.
- 1 1/2 cup table sugar
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 1/8 teaspoon table salt
- 1 1/4 cup boiling hot water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
In a medium saucepan over medium low heat, stir the sugar, cocoa, salt, and water together in the pan. Allow the mixture to come to a slow boil for 5 minutes, do not stir. Remove from heat. Add the vanilla. Transfer to clean mason jar. Allow to cool on the counter. Close with a good fitting lid and store in the refrigerator.
Chocolate syrup keeps well in the refrigerator for up to a month.
Use this syrup to flavor iced coffee, make hot chocolate, cold chocolate milk or drizzle it over your ice cream.
