Easy Homemade Chocolate Syrup

It’s so easy to make your own chocolate syrup, and you probably already have all the ingredients you need to whip up a batch. And it only takes 10 minutes!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder and sugar until blended. Add the water and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and whisk over medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly.
  2. Continue boiling until mixture thickens, about 3 – 4 minutes. The mixture will still be fairly thin (it thickens to a syrup-like consistency once cool). Taste and stir in additional salt until dissolved, up to 1/4 teaspoon, if desired.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Cool.
  4. Store syrup in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator. The syrup should keep, refrigerated, for at least a month.
