My husband and kids LOVE my homemade chocolate syrup recipe. They’ve begged me to make it quite a few times, and tonight we indulged!
I love the taste of my chocolate syrup better than the store bought ones. Not only do I can I pronounce all the ingredient’s names, but I have everything needed to make the syrup in my cupboards!
The ingredients in Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup are High Fructose Corn Syrup; Corn Syrup; Water; Cocoa; Sugar; and contains 2% or less of: Potassium Sorbate; Salt; Mono- and Diglycerides; Xantan Gum; Polysorbate 60; Vanillin, Artificial Flavor
What a list of ingredients!
Please don’t put that in your body!!!
Here is my easy recipe for delicious chocolate syrup:
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 dash salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine water, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt together in a saucepan over low heat; whisk constantly until the mixture thickens and begins to simmer; about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir the vanilla into the sauce. Serve warm or cold. Once cooled, store in refrigerator.
For the kids bedtime snack tonight I gave them chocolate milk. They loved it. And I made myself a glass too 🙂
