Chocolate Syrup



For a long while now I have been making our family Chocolate Syrup. It is such a nice treat to have on hand for Chocolate Milk, Ice Cream topping or a little spoonful in your coffee.
No High Fructose Corn Syrup and no preservatives.
Yesterday's batch was made with raw sugar and carob powder and it turned out fabulous.
Here is the recipe.

Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup cocoa or carob powder
1 cup water
2 cups sugar, raw sugar, or sucanat
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix cocoa and water in saucepan, add sugar and heat until boiling.  Boil for 3 min!  Remove from heat and add salt and vanilla.  Pour into a canning jar, label and store in refrigerator once cool!

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
My Cup Runneth Over...

  4. Thank you for this recipe. We are trying to avoid HFCS and all the other *garbage* that the FDA allows to be added to foods.

    PS-Looks like we're in for some wintery stuff...snow sleet, etc...
    Enjoy. Be Safe.
