My daughter loves chocolate in any shape or form. Myself, I am not a big fan of chocolate so we don't keep chocolate in the house on a regular basis except during the Holidays.
I found a terrific "copycat" recipe for Chocolate Syrup and we have been making this over the last year which I would love to pass along. In our home, we add this to our milk for a perfect glass of chocolate milk. We especially love this recipe because we can control the amount of sugar and sodium.
Hershey's Chocolate Syrup Recipe:
1/2 cup Hershey's Cocoa Powder (we use a generic brand)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
Dash of salt
Combine Cocoa, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Add water and mix until smooth without any lumps. Bring mixture to a boil over medium to medium high heat, stirring to prevent scorching. Allow mixture to boil for one minute, being careful to ensure that sauce does not boil over. Remove from heat and allow to cool, then add vanilla and stir well.
Pour cooled sauce into a mason jar and store in fridge and it will keep for several months.
***This syrup can be drizzled over icecream and desserts.
