This chocolate syrup is great for making chocolate milk or spooning over ice cream.
It's not as sweet as the chocolate syrup you'd buy at the store. It is a darker tasting chocolate.
It is really simple to make.
Makes 2 to 2-1/4 cups syrup.
You will need a 2 quart saucepan.
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1-1/4 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla or chocolate extract
In your saucepan combine all the ingredients.
Heat to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Turn down heat to low and let it simmer but continue to keep stirring for another 3-5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and cool slightly before putting in a container.
Keep it stored in the fridge.
