Since the hot weather is here for a while it looks like, I decided to post my recipe for homemade chocolate syrup.  This is SO yummy on some homemade ice-cream too!  Enjoy!


1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup tap water
2 cups sugar (I use organic sugar)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a 2 quart saucepan, mix the cocoa and water with a wire whisk or fork.  Heat the chocolate water over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Add the sugar and continue to stir until the sugar dissolves.  Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil.  Reduce the heat to medium low and boil for a full 3 minutes.  Remove the syrup from the heat.  Add the salt and vanilla, stirring to blend.

Pour the syrup into a clean pint sized canning jar, or a clean catsup container.  Put a good lid on the jar and store it in the fridge.  Use this chocolate syrup to make chocolate milk, or serve it over ice-cream.
