Description

A twist on Alton Brown’s chocolate syrup recipe. Chocolatey, delicious and a million times better than anything you’ll buy in a brown bottle at the grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Water
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1-½ cup Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla

Preparation

Bring water, sugar and honey to boil in a medium pot, whisking frequently.

Whisk in cocoa powder and salt. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened, whisking constantly. Remove from heat. (Sauce will thicken as it cools, so don’t feel like you need to cook it to the perfect chocolate syrup-like consistency.)

Stir in vanilla.

Let cool to room temperature and pour into squeeze bottles, mason jars, etc. (I poured some into a squeeze bottle and the rest into a mason jar.)

Store in the refrigerator and enjoy on ice cream, in coffee, in chocolate milk or any other way you see fit!

Though I haven’t tried it yet, I bet this recipe could be customized just a bit . I’m thinking special dark cocoa powder with peppermint extract in place of vanilla. Yum!

I absolutely love this recipe. I always have a batch on hand and mix it into everything -plain yogurt, warm milk, peanut butter-banana smoothies, etc.
