Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Updated on December 11, 2008

One of the ways I have found to save money is to make my own condiments. Amy Dacyczyn's book The Complete Tightwad Gazette has many great recipes. One of our favorites is Chocolate Syrup. This recipe is very easy to make and tastes much better than store bought chocolate syrup.

Ingredients -

  • 1/2 cup of cocoa
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Whisk cocoa into the water until dissolved. Start heating on high and add the sugar. Stir well while the syrup starts to boil. Once boiling I turn it down so that it won't boil over, but I keep it high enough that it is still slightly boiling. Boil for 3 minutes. Then add the salt and vanilla and stir well. Cool and then store in the fridge for several weeks. I keep mine in an old store bought chocolate syrup container for easy pouring. You can also store in a regular tupperware container and spoon out as needed. Quick, easy and yummy! You can't beat it.

      This is the best! I only made half the recipe because I wanted to see how I liked it; this has become my new favorite...DRINK! I used almond extract (double the amount) for a different taste. I also want to use orange extract...Perfect for soymilk, ice cream, pancakes, cookies, homemade "exotic" coffee drinks, and, as I mentioned, a wonderful drink...
