Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Homemade chocolate syrup! Yes please! I go through a ton of syrup as I am very fond of chocolate milk, hot chocolate, banana splits and brownies with ice cream and syrup. So when I saw this recipe on Pinterest I HAD to try it. Please visit the blog that I got the recipe from. It is a blog called 
SMALL NOTEBOOK. You can see how she packaged hers. Here is the recipe.

½ cup cocoa powder
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon vanilla
Mix the cocoa powder and the water in a saucepan. Heat and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Add the sugar, and stir to dissolve. Boil for 3 minutes over medium heat. Be careful not to let it get too hot and boil over! Add the salt and the vanilla. Let cool. Pour into a clean glass jar, and store in the refrigerator. Keeps for several months. Yields two cups.

I cooked mine in a large pot so I didn't have a problem with it boiling over. This syrup is super yummy - and the best part - no preservatives and other chemical junk to worry about. 
I am totally making some for gifts this winter. I put my syrup in an empty maple syrup jar. I found a fancy French Chocolate label from Graphics Fairy, and made another label saying what it is in English and the date it was made. If you love chocolate - YOU HAVE GOT TO TRY THIS!

Thanks for stopping by!
