Okay, will start by saying this is WAY better than Hershey’s, and formerly I would have been aghast at someone saying that! I’m a chocoholic! However, once you make the recipe you’ll be addicted too! You’ll never go back to store bought syrup! You get the flavor of actual chocolate, not additives! 😀 SO, it’s healthier! It will keep for up to 3 months in the fridge, so make some and enjoy!
1 cup coa-coa powder
2 cups water
4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix coa-coa powder, water, and sugar in large saucepan.
Heat and stir to dissolve.
Be careful not to let it boil over!
Boil for 3 minutes over medium heat.
Add salt and vanilla.
Pour into glass jar, store in fridge.
Goes great in a glass of milk, over ice cream, or in coffee!!!
The clumps are from my letting it sit on the stove to cool too long!
It has such great chocolate flavor, you don’t have to use as much syrup. The down side is you don’t get the chocolate color, but it’s work the sacrifice!
As a side note, my brothers are crashing on the couch. I just wanted to say I am thankful for family. Even in the moments where all they are doing is providing a pillow for our dog!
