Homemade Chocolate SyrupPosted 15 December 2010 by Debbie
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. You can use the syrup in other recipes, as a chocolate sauce on ice-cream, or to make chocolate milk!
- 50 g cocoa
- 235 ml water
- 100 g sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Sieve the cocoa into the water.
Whisk it together and add the sugar. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Bring the mixture to the boil and let it boil for about three minutes.
Stir in the salt and vanilla extract and leave to cool.
Now, what do you do with your fabulous homemade chocolate syrup? Make chocolate milk with it, pour it over ice-cream, or give it away as gifts! It would make a great Christmas gift for the ice-cream or chocolate milk lover in your life.
