I don’t know if you’ve ever wondered how to make your own chocolate syrup… I can’t say I had until recently. It’s the kind of product that people don’t think twice about buying ready-made. This recipe for homemade syrup is so quick and easy though, and it allows you to cut out all the extra unwanted chemical ingredients there are in commercial products.
